At the beginning of this thread I don't think I would have been able to pick a favorite, but after seeing the matte carbon De Rosa...THAT"S IT!

Stem, saddle, seat post, handlebars, all purchased with custom fitting.

Full Dura ace purchased (7800) but bike in pics currently has Ultegra installed. Last swap will be the components....

Tossed in white tires with the SL's to "cool down" the Ti.

Okay.... I'm suddenly very jealous. That is just plain sexiness with two wheels right there..

Yeah it is.

Here's my new 61cm Cervelo S1. Not the caliber of bike that has been previously posted in this thread, but the best I've ever had. I'm really loving it. On to the pictures.

That is a nice paint scheme. too bad they don't use more white/red schemes in their other bikes.

grahny 07-01-09 04:43 PM

^ that's a pro tour worthy frame... absolutely at the same caliber as other rides on here! :thumb:

I still miss my old SLT. :cry:

Man that is a great bike and your photography skills are top notch. Obviously you have skill with a camera.

sorry, but I have to vote 'not' here. I like the Seven Ti frame, but hate the shimano components and kysrium wheels. I love Thomson with the exception of their set back seat post, which has always just looked awkward to me. Also not photographed up to potential.

Super hot: Pinarello Prince, DeRosa, Moots.
Hot: Just about everything else. Especially vintage steel. I actually had a Cilo like the red one.
Not hot: The chopper and decal bikes.

Here's a couple of my restorations:

Love the honest opinion. I must admit I got lazy with the camera. I had two flashes and an umbrella, but batteries were low so I simply took a "snap" shot...

Photography and bicycles are to hobbies that merge nicely. After the bike is complete, I'll have some fun with my camera.

Bought the Ksyrium SL's for $400....Wanted something light and durable....

Considered Campy, but I built this bike myself. (complete newb)...The used 7800 pieces cost me around $700.

Seven Ti= $1000
Mavic=$400
Dura Ace 7800=$700
Saddle/Seat post/Stem/Handlebar $450 all added by a pro during a very long fitting...In other words, those parts were all measured to fit me. (I liked the straight Thomson masterpiece seat post better too, but the pro put me on the slanted one)

Total cost= A bit over 2K..

Value of my experience building bike= Priceless.

I fail to see why the slanted post is necessary when the seat is so far forward on it.

Man, you are saying all the things I was thinking....Dam seat post set me back $150.

I hate the way it fits my bike stand for maintenance...

I'll go back to my fitter and ask for a straight bar.. (unless there is something we are missing here------Best fitter in the DC area-----I trust these people.
