    Pretty cool:

    I watched it the other day and I liked it a lot.

    I would love to build my very own dream bike...some day.

    He could have saved himself a pantload by buying a frameset from bikeisland.com or performancebike.com and ebaying all the other parts and learning how to build his own wheels, and posting it in the road forum. How would have gotten basically the same bike and the same number of people drooling over it, without having to waste time and money flying, talking to people, and making a documentary. What a dumbass.

    You could have saved your self a pantload (assuming you wear small pants) of your time by not watching it and saved us a small pantload of our time reading your grumpy post...just saying.
