    Are those bars comfortable for you in that position?

    Nope. It was sold and the money turned into the Fizik Arione CX. Left over parts are usually sold since I try to keep the cost of the bike low.

    I've had this frame built up for about a year now, but just added the Shamals yesterday -- loving it even more now.

    Thanks -- I really do love it.

    The fork is not original, but I've found a stock replacement and am debating installing it to bring the bike back to original specs & look.

    Here's what happened to the original stock fork as a result of an unleashed dog doing a kamikaze impression on my front wheel while I was doing ~25mph. Considering what happened to the fork (and my body), it's pretty amazing that the frame is still intact. *knock on wood*

    Whoa -- my transformation of hating those squiggly Pinarellos to loving them is now complete.

    Funny how I overlooked those Treks years ago, but they really are nice looking bikes.

    The app I use is Cyclelog. No gps. just a way for me to keep track plus it emails the info to me whenever I get home. Works out well as my net provider
    has a ton of hotspots along my route.

    You're right, I misremembered. It was mid-13 in race configuration. I actually replaced some components with heavier parts (hub, bars) so it weighs about 14 now.

    Frame is 985g, so not heavy but certainly not super-light. The ZG brakes are the only major part I would call weight weenie, but everythng else is light for "regular" parts. Actually now that I think about it, I guess the Nokon cables, KCNC skewers, and Extralite steerer expander plug & top cap could all be considered WW parts too

    Is it, now? Okay, let's see.

    .. Hmm. You've got the chain in the middle of the cassette, not the small cog. The door isn't exactly white, but at least it's not graffiti'd concrete. The vantage point is kinda high, but that's not a big deal.

    You're closer than a lot of 'em, though (including some of mine ).

    P.S. there's a mountain of spacers, arguably nullifying any aero-benefit the S2 frame might have had.
