    Just the simple fact that you'd assemble the bike yourself means you'd probably never need the support or help of a LBS anyways.

    I'd buy almost everything online if it were not for the fact that one of my best friends is part of a family bike shop business in town that has hooked me up with quite a few good deals and gives me a regular discount off sticker price.

    Awesome looking Trek. I love the color schemes of the new Treks. Very classy and fast looking at the same time.

    Cheers,

    New/old bike added to the stable. I love Ti.

    2001 Merlin Agilis. Acquired in 2002. Sold in 2005... reacquired in 2009... rebuilt and ready to ride! Pretty much done save a few little bits I wanna add. Rides as awesome as I remembered... and the SRAM stuff is great! Hope you like.








    Only planned upgrades now are a new fork, KCNC Skewers, a Ti seat post collar.

    Just got my custom Gilmour. It is setup with Campy Record.

    We are going to cut the steer tube when we dial in the fit.

    Wow that's the Comp model? Looks very nice.

    Thats the standard Specialized tape for 2010. Very very comfortable and reasonably light

    Lung,

    You've got your Merlin posted all over BF, but I never get tired of looking at it. Its one of the nicest looking builds I've seen ever. It's also quite literally exactly the kind of build I'm looking at for my hopefully attainable dream bike. Nice job!

    Has anyone tried out a Rossetti Road Bike?

    I found Rossetti road bike on line and wondered if anyone owns one and how it performs?
