    haha yeah you did, but you were right the cages it had before looked pretty ghetto. These cheap ones I got from REI look and function a lot better.

    Yup! I went with a 52, because the ST is real weird, it had a 56cm ST on the size 52, and a short 52.5cm TT. But I'm making up for it by getting a longer stem than my last bike. What components are you running? Looks like it may be Tiagra also Our setups may be quite similar.

    I forgot to buy waterbottle cages. Time to ebay some sweet crabon fibre cages.

    105 shifters, dura ace derailleurs, ultegra brakes, truvativ elita gxp crankset (heavy @ 900g w/bb but it works well enough). For some reason the nashbar frames have short top tubes relative to the seat tube as you've noticed, I am using a 120mm stem. The frame size is actually very close to my vintage bikes which have a ~2cm longer st than tt (58/56). It works out pretty well because IME bikes seem to handle and fit better with longer stems, most people use too short of stems it seems like (cue adriano). Another thing about the frame sizing is it provides a taller head tube so you don't need a massive spacer stack to get the bars at the right height. It's better to go higher/longer than shorter/shorter. Good luck with your build!

    they are great tires, if you don't mind the price. Rolling is very supple and they work really well in the wet. They cut a lil more easily then other tires, but I don't get many flats with the tire

    The cheapest site I know of with free shipping, Use code:VELONEWS10 for 10% off

    Don't forget they have periodic deals on them/ other popular tyres where you can stack with coupons for additional savings! Not to mention the free international shipping! Can't go wrong!

    I tracked down a Rabobank team issued C40, ridden by Thomas Dekker. I like it a lot so far.

    Just finished her last night. I call her "The Falcon" because "She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid."

    First ever build, I'm quite proud of her. I'll snap some pics with the DSLR in a few days.




    Not bad for a first ever wrap job imo.

    I put some Hudz on my De Rosa to give it an old school look; I am not sure yet if I like the look but they sure are comfy.
