    I like it. Looks like the cable could have been shorter coming from the junction box into the down tube? I dig the Zipp combo.

    VERY nice! It's one of the few times white bar tape actually looks good.

    I kind of expected to get beaten up over the saddle rails and pedals.

    i can stuff it back in the tube, but it gets pulled back out whenever the bars are turned 90 degrees to the left.

    Surprised there are so many Cav fans here. The frame is nice and all, but this is the same forum that bashes people for wearing pro jerseys.

    Until you mentioned it, I had no idea that the special edition was Cav-related. Regardless, I don't think that it's a stretch to assume that people admire it for purely aesthetic reasons, regardless of affiliation.
    They look like big, good, strong hands, don't they?

    It's not the frame that makes it decent...after all, that's the same old venge frame I find ugly in most circumstances...it's the subtle metal flake paint job...the association with someone as blatantly boorish as Cav is meaningless to me...

    Looks nice. No pedals or cages. Tire stamps not lined up with valves. And, the front QR is on the wrong side? DOH!

    the paint scheme on the white venge is looking pretty similar to recent treks. That's not a good direction. still hot but it is on a slippery slope with that paint.

    take a look at most double doors and you'll find a top or bottom (or both) flush floor bolt.

    that's a pretty poor way (albeit the only way) to do it with a typical household hollowcore door.

    Hot. Remove that gargantuan headtube extender/spacer and slam the stem. Then, it would be molten.
