Nice! What size is the S-Works? It looks tiny relative to the set-up.

Nice stable. It's odd that they handled your warranty with an 06 frame though. Good stuff, nonetheless.

Sweet! But be careful about leaving them alone in the same room...I've found that the tent to multiply.

It is a little small....the top tube is about 9mm shorter than the fuji. I typically ride a 54cm...can get away with a 56 with short stems and can ride 52cm compact designs....the fuji is very comfy...i am actually a bit more aero and stretched out on the Specialized which makes it nice for faster rides.

If you look at the design in the garage they are set up almost exactly with the exception of seat to bar drop.

I might....i am gonna hold off a bit to see what fuji does for me. The director of sales for Fuji america asked me to submitt a letter of complaint directly to him and he would see what he can do about the whole mess of me being without a bike for 44 days., he promised it won't fall on deaf ears so we'll see.

they actually handled it kinda right...i had an 06 Team RC...they sent me an 06 Team Issue frame (same frame diff paint job) and then when i found the forked cracked also they sent me an 08 fork.

Thats another complaint of mine as that i basically have a missmatched bike, my opinion is that's not what i bought, if i try to resell it i doubt anyone is going to believe the bike hasn't been down do to the missmatched frame and fork.

it's a 52 compact....

The thing is i have long legs...a short torso and long arms...so i can pretty much fit about anything that has a 53.3-57CM top tube with a little adjustment
