    I am not a weight weenie either. I just like to waste money. Coincidentally having a lighter wallet is proportional to having a lighter bike. Thanks for the compliment. I really love the way this bike rides. Although, I have not ridden the Zipps yet. Everyone tells me they are awesome. I'll find out in a few months I guess. I've been a Sram fan since the earliest days of Gripshift. Sram Force, and Red are a big improvement over the 6500 group I have on my Trek, but they should be. They are 10 years newer. I've been a Cervelo fan since the first day I test rode a Soloist Carbon. It's a great riding bike, I assure you.

    i ride/prefer sram on my mtb, but on the road i love the feel, ergonomics, feedback, and heritage behind campagnolo. you wouldnt hear me complain if i was forced to ride sram however (i dont think much of shimano)

    i would really like to ride a soloist. honestly, i wouldnt mind finding an aluminum one if the price were right (carbon is out of my current budget) i just would not consider it one of my go to manufacturers.

    are you still thinking about painting yours black? that photoshop was sweet.

    If and when the paint gets worn enough to merit a repaint. I think I will do the black idea. I've kicked around the idea of picking up an aluminum soloist myself for crit racing. People tend to go down in crits and all. I've yet to use Campy, but I am sure if I did I would like it allot.

    Upgraded from the Roubaix to a Cervelo S1. Dropped of the parts, sans groupset at the bike shop @ 12 today, picked it up @ 6 all done! Not the best picture, will have to do for now. Upgraded wheels later this year...

    If you look at the two pictures next two each other. They don't even look like the same bike. We all learn. Ive been on here more than 3 years now and I am still just learning the ropes.

    Thanks, next time a little more guidance(as to where) would be far more beneficial.

    Sadly the quit making the aluminum S series. I'm thinking of picking one up myself as well, but they are getting harder to find.

    Excellent sir. Excellent.

    Is it the camera angle or is your seat really that high?

    Partially the camera angle, and the sloping top tube. It is the medium length seatpost at it's longest extension. I'll go measure the drop right now. This question keeps popping up.

    5.5" is the drop. The top of the bars are at 35", and the seat is at 40.5"

    I just realized I don't have a pic of my bikes current build in here...



    EDIT: Oh wait, that's not even a current pic... now I have different stem, narrower bars with a shallow drop, and more beer related stickers.

    I love my Soloist Team. If you can find an NOS or lightly used one, definitely pick one up.

    My gift from Santa finally arrived!

    A Raleigh Revenio 3.0 with 105 all around. Its name is Tron. Haven't put too many miles on it yet, but so far it's pretty sweet. A big step up from my 1998 Specialized Hardrock Classic MTB with slicks!

    I don't have a white garage door, but I do have an indoor garage...
