    My new baby(pics)

    After months of grueling research, deciding whether or not to wait on '09 Rival. Going on trips and delaying the order even further Issues with Pedal force stocking items, and finally settling on Vigor RS's

    I finally did it, i bought my new bike.

    And might I say it is amazing, rides like a dream, climbs like a cougar,

    Specs
    PF ZX3 frame
    Easton EC90 SLX fork
    SRAM 2008 Rival Group
    Rolf Prima Vigor RS's
    Look Keo Carbon's
    Ritchey WCS stem
    Easton EC70 carbon bars
    Selle Italia SLR GF

    Weighs in just at 16lbs

    I know some of you are gonna flame the whole chainring thing, who cares. It is a good pic

    Looks great! I don't love the look of the Rolfs, but they are supposed to be nice. I wonder how long it'll be before PF has '09 Rival in.

    DAMN a beauty....I really like the cost of the pedal force. And I am starting to think I should go with that instead of a soloist team. Originally, I didn't like the idea of no decals on a bike. But now I am starting to like the pure carbon look. What size is that? If you don't mind me asking what was the total cost of the bike with everything you have?

    It's already out. Just bug them to order it.

    It's not how many miles you ride, but how hard you ride them. Time trials aren't races.

    Pwitty. I especially like the pop of the orange bar tape.

    Very nice looking bike. I like the Rolfs. I'm not sold on the orange bar tape I would have done a mixed white/black pattern. Enjoy.
    Keep the rubber side down!

    I'm not digging the orange bar tape. Black would be so much more stealth. But very nice bike!

    Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.

    yes, chain should have been on big ring, and carbon fsa cranks would complement it well, but overall very very tastefully built
