Oh boy.......I'm glad I live here..Originally Posted by ViperZ
Things aren't so bad here, either.
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.
That is one great looking 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.

+100......Well done!Originally Posted by blandin
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.
Nice beater. ROFLMAO

That about sums it up. Nice ride...Originally Posted by The Fixer
Your talent in photography only makes it look that much nicer.. May your snows melt fast so you can enjoy it.
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
wow, that is a truely beautiful bike. turned out fantastic. when are you building the next one? i think you may have the time before the snow melts.
oh, are you able to weigh it? just curious.
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.
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
