    here's what it looks like right now. the only difference betwen the photo and it's actual appearance are the pedals. i finally spent some time to get my SPDs off my old bike and put em on, but that was after the photo was taken.

    full specs for whoever's interested:

    Frame: 2003 Surly Steamroller, 49cm
    Headset: Cane Creek S2, black. 1" threadless
    Stem: ITM Road Racing, 80mm, 80deg, black.
    Bars: ITM Super 330, 42cm, black.
    Bottom Bracket: Shimano UN-53
    Cranks: Sugino 75. 49t for commuting, 50t for racing.
    Chain: KMC 1/8"
    Saddle: Selle Italia Nitrox
    Racing Wheelset: Velocity Aerohead rims, Surly hubs, Surly 15t cog + lockring. Panaracer Stradius T.T. tires, 700x20c. Kenda ultra-light tubes.
    Commuting Wheelset: (FRONT) FiR rim, Campy Veloce hub (REAR) Alex rim, Suzue hub, Surly 16t cog + lockring. mixmatch tires, kenda tubes.

    this thing is a BLAST to ride. i haven't felt this good about a bike in quite some time.

    thanks man..

    the steer tube.. well, i didnt want to cut it too short and find out i wanted the bars higher. once i get the bars where i'm comfortable i'll take off the excess, if any.
