    Nice bike, I was considering getting one of those myself.

    That said, as someone who rides slightly upright, that's a hell of a lot of stem spacers. How tall are you and what size is it?

    Your first road bike is a pinarello? That is one sweet road bike whether it is your first or not. DON'T Paint it! (Unless of course you are an artist and very crafty and experienced painting bicycles)

    Here is my latest and greatest. Obviously I have recently learned to play with photoshop. Forgive the hack job on the picture. This bike is FAST though and EXTREMELY FUN to ride.

    These things take time to learn. Graphics was never my strong suit. I usually pay an associate of mine to take care of these things for work related items. I'll get better I promise.

    I have been riding for quite a few years now and still barely know anything compared to pros, I figured photoshop will take just as long... lol. That's the excuse I am giving myself anyways.

    Yeah, I pretty much ALWAYS swap out OEM tires immediately. Pretty much wheels at this point too.

    I knew it was coming :-). Already have 4 inches of drop. Might try that in a year or so when I increase my flexibility...

    Trek 1000 Frame (2001)
    Xero xr-1 race wheels (16/20 spoke,1525 grams)

    Dura-ace 7800 bottom bracket with raceface cadence crank
    Ultegra clipless pedals

    Future upgrades:

    If you have spare room and money. I can't afford a second road bike nor do I have room in my tiny one bedroom apartment for another bike.

    FYI I am pretty certain that you cannot "blast" carbon fiber. I found out that there is only one authorized paint shop that can repaint a carbon Specialized frame and still retain the frame warranty. They carefully hand sand the frame, all other techniques will cause damage to the material and void the warranty I've been told. I think media blast or even nutshell blast will damage the carbon fiber.

    Surly Pacer with mostly 105.

    I'm getting a Brooks Swift this week. Not the lightest, but it's a fun bike.
