    Sweet - on so many levels. Ease off the vignetting just a tad.

    Mean people are like slinkys. They're really not worth much but still are rather entertaining to watch tumble down the stairs.

    New build - Hot or Not?

    I just built this up last month. Chinese carbon frame from eBay, full 105 5700 group, Mavic Aksium Race wheels. Relatively low-cost build just for the experience of building a bike for myself. Came in a hair over 17 lbs.

    Bought this Novemeber during JensonUSA "Black Friday" sale. I've been waiting for a good rain to clear all the crud off the roads. Wheels are Reynolds Assaults. 105 components w/ 7800 crankset. I'll be upgrading the rear mech eventually, but I'm happy the way it is right now. Obviously, I need another cassette so I don't have to keep switching between the other set of wheels.

    Hot. How much did you end up spending, if you don't mind my asking?

    Absolutely beautiful! Out of curiousity, any guestimate on what that bike would retail for?

    That's Ok lee. Thanks to people that can and don't mind spending it, people like me who can't, but probably would, get to gawk at and drool over such beautiful things I would have no otherwise way of knowing even exist. I would love to see a picture of the WHOLE thing.

    Same here. Maybe that photo of it against the window that's buried somewhere in this thread.

    Wowzaz.. That is a very stiff looking bike with some very prominent stiff lines. That looks incredible leej. Not that you care what any of us should think. Thank you for the pics, it totally completes the chronicle.

    BTW: the wheels look amazing. Spokes and all even bring out the lines in the bike. Schawing.
