    The way you have it looks like a recipe for a sleepy third leg.. and puts weight on your hands / wrists as you need to resist sliding forward.

    Hot bikes look the way they do for a reason.

    The Soma is nice. I don't think I would call it hot but rather Cool looking and nicely done.

    I think that bike you have is nice enough to make the trip. My bet is that you will walk out of there very satisfied.

    Because some bikes can pull it off while others can't. Especially with wheels like Reynolds, or Easton high profile, they have a lot of logos. Sometimes even 4 logos on one side of the wheel and makes the bike look very loud and cluttered.

    I guess if it says Campagnolo, it's automatically cool and good looking.

    dat's right....he gets Italian matchy-matchy points with that set up....

    personally, I don't like the spoke-paired look of Campy wheels, period...but this Colnago is undeniably hot....

    I'm going to gear up in murray. I've had experience with bike surgeon near stl. If i was to travel, I'd go back to them. The guy at gear up is really good too. He fit my saddle for me when i bought it for my old bike. I just haven't had time to go yet, I work in sales and it's the end of the month. If I can hit my goal tomorrow, I'll probably use my day off wednesday to go.

    The Colnago is hot, but those wheels are almost too deep for a normal road bike.
