Here's mine with the new bar tape:
How do you like that Z25, sojourn? I'm thinking about getting myself the 09 Z25 come May or June as a present for transferring to San Diego State.
Mine's all DA and I believe the 09's are all SRAM as I recall.
I upgraded the wheels to DT Swiss and changed out the seat to a Selle An-Atomica. I changed back to the carbon stem that the Z25 came with as the Thomson, though nice, added a little too much "road buzz".
The ride is very smooth and the frame is not overly stiff.
Congrats on your transfer!
I forgot about this thread...
I built up my tricross finally about a month ago and raced it finally yesterday (with different pedals)
I just aquired an SL2 and will build it up shortly...
Here's my (only) ride. Haven't gotten around to the n+1 thing yet, but I'm pretty happy with this guy.

I think I want to build my own wheels now.
Edit: I think we have the same garage door. What size is your SL and is that a compact?
It's a 56...nope...it's a standard crank size.
love the bike though...i was on a 08 tarmac expert before this with DA...love the Red and the new bike..
i still understand what people mean about the flat rear tire thing...it's weird...it acts funny when you're not sprinting just right...it definitely tells you if your form is jacked.
Pulled my old 1978 Trex TX500 frameset out of the barn that I built up l-o-n-g ago. It cleaned up really nicely. Photos at ...
And I found Gary Fisher's 1978 Bicycling Magazine article, describing his tour of the then-new Trek frame plant. Is is on the "Documents" page of the same site.

For the SD Crowd
View from the handle bars:
New saddle...new tape...
and maybe new rims?...i am thinking about buying the DT swiss wheels that are on it.
How's the saddle?
I saw one a while ago and they are PIMPED !
I am riding again without the hand pedals, until i do some more upgrades, going to put the tandem gears on this next year, i hope.
Sorry, only camera phone pics. I love the new bike though. Fuji '08 Roubaix.
i'm still fairly new to riding, but this is the machine that got me hooked. a blast anywhere you take it.
