    I hope she is locked up and safe at night, otherwise some of us might get some ideas. And I don't mean bolt cutters, I mean champagne and roses.

    i feel like since everyone is going ga-ga over the mercian i need to criticize.

    cinelli bars have too much hook, the ends could be trimmed to look a bit better
    half wrap on the bars would be an improvement.
    the red tires are just too much. some skinwalls would be classy.

    other than that, sweet. the red tires are what bothers me most.

    Please tell me what percentage of these bikes are track only, so I can get a bearing on whether or not I should drop mad cash on decent components if they're just going to get ****ed up/stolen on the street.

    Well done Tresspaser, Absolutely Beautiful!
    Did you already have the color scheme in mind before you started it, before you got the frame even, or did it just fall into place?

    Well, it took nearly 1 year from the planning, and collecting bits. It was kindda good that they took 5 month to build the frame, so I could gather enough dough without going bankrupt.
    And I got most of the parts off ebay and off-season sales for pretty cheap, probably less than new miche primato group would cost.

    yeah, I finally got them a couple of days ago, and they feel really good and strong.

    ink1373, I know what you mean about the tires, but these tires just feel so good!

    yep, they pretty much only do custom build for fix/track frames, no stock. it's really worth it when they don't charge extra for going custom geo's and paint, and you can get a custom frame for about 500 (less than $1000).

    You know, RG, not much gets me going too good, but there's something about the Japanese frames...Miyata (underappreciated, I think) being one of my favorite. I'm jealous!

    I have some black wheels (surly hubs, black spokes + open pros) which will work nicely.

    Au Contraire Mon frair, I have a few tricks up my sleeve. You'll see...

    PS - The Cinelli is still with me. Why would I want to part with that! I think it's getting a red Chris King headset this week. It shall like that, yes it shall....
