Great pictures TS!
Congrats on the new frame LAJ!
Is it the same frameset as your old one?
Agree on the CX Rays.
Cool photos, ts.
I just noticed Di2 shifters are less than 6700.
Black on black is always the answer.
My blue and black Russian Paketa was pretty sweet, though. When they took that one and replaced it with the Made in Boulder eggplant frameset, I was very sad. That eggplant Paketa was ugly as hell.
Luckily, the eggplant bike killed itself with a little BB corrosion. Then came the black on black.
Man, I put 25-pound kickass mountainbikes up on CL for $140 and I get crickets.
Put a 28-pound Novara touring bike up for $225 and it's like chumming for sharks on Portland CL.
Musta been the orange Newbaum's.

woot! got hired to shoot an event so new (to me, it's used - D7000) camera has been ordered. i get to go from 6.1MP to 16.2MP (which is kind of a big deal when i'm trying to shoot for print pubs.) and use cards bigger than 2GB. (for whatever reason, the D50 can only handle 2GB cards... that's only about 200 shots RAW + small jpg which sucks when i sometimes shoot 2K shots a day at a race.)
The Paketa guys have always been good to me. A Paketa was the first road bike I coveted. I coveted the Litespeed Tuscany, but couldn't afford it. Finally bought the Russian frameset and hung it from the ceiling until I could afford to build it up.
