    Got the Bottom bracket installed, and have set everything up. Just need to install the chain, wrap the bar tape and wait for pedals and the instrumentation.

    I'm going to see about a Sram or Wipperman quick link for the chain, then I may have some pictures up of the whole bike.

    The crowd grows silent as they behold the beauty before them, and are humbled in its presence.

    Nice going ViperZ. May your snow melt soon and the sun shine brightly on your roads.

    Awesome...just beautiful.

    You really had me considering the Firenze from Colorado Cyclist because of this (and FMW's) build. In the end, I had to pass because the geometry wasn't quite right...

    Will you photograph my new bike for me?!!!

    My photos are pretty lame by comparison...

    Absolute understated elegance. Wait till you ride in your first blazing sunset with it and the frame is glowing red/pink/gold from reflection of sky/sun! I got some new wall paper and ideas Best looking bike I've seen man. Can't wait for the ride report (like I don't know how that's gonna turn out)
    I feel like a soiled kleenex dropped in the gutter in the red-light district of Paris.

    Taking a tip from Siu Blue Wind, I too am typing a lengthy passage of text down here to demonstrate the enormous amount of space available should one wish to use it-- in sharp contrast to the avatar text above this part.

    Your talent in photography only makes it look that much nicer.. May your snows melt fast so you can enjoy it.

    Hehe, he said "rad".

    Beautiful bike ViperZ. Now I'm glad the Tete wasn't done - I wouldn't have wanted to compete with that.

    Thanks folks! I especially enjoyed the wishes for a quick snow melt

    Thanks for everyone's help, support and friendship during the build. Your words and encouragement relating to everything in this article help drive the project to what it is today

    I'm the one in awe to the inspiration from this group

    Fantastic finished product there ViperZ. One Litespeed I wouldn't mind being seen on that's for sure. And it's making me want my own Campy Record group for my very own too!

    Great Bike Great photography. ViperZ I'm really awed by your work of art and also by your photography. between you and Rad, I don't know who's the better photographer and ride-pimper.
    BTW this is like the best thread ever. Not one Flip-it/yomama/Your bike sucks reference yet.

    Fantastic

    VERY Nice, she turned out excellent!! The decision to go black on the cables was a good one, it definately looks better than the Nokons for this build.

    I must say, I was a little skeptical of the drop on the Zipp bars at first. The curve on them looked odd, but they look great now after being wrapped. I bet they're pretty light too. I've heard really good things about the Deda tape and will be using some myself.

    Hope that damn snow melts soon, you're gonna gain a mph or two on your first ride from shear adrenalin and excitement
