    Guess again, Carbon Fiber Composite (Frameset as pictured weighs a feathery 1780 grams, and the steer tube isn't even cut down yet).

    I thought the same thing too but that wouldn't be right.

    Like I said, plastic.
    Seriously, though, sweet frame. Are you building it up yourself or having the shop do it for you?

    I am having the shop build it up... But they're teaching me as we build it.

    That would be Rock n' Road Cyclery in Anaheim Hills. The manager there is Ed Pineda, he's taking really good care of me.

    Radium, this bike willnot hit the road for another month as I have to wait for my next paycheck to buy the group kit (Ultegra SL for now, Dura-Ace 7900 by the end of January). You'll see me riding aroud East Lake Village or on the SART.

    If this saves you any money, my uncle just bought a bike with virtually no budget (he's a pretty successful lawyer) and even he decided on Ultegra SL over Dura Ace. He also tested frames by Serotta, Moots, Kutoa, etc. and ended up liking the Scott CR1 frame the best. Diminishing returns gets pretty darn small when you get up there.

    Oh, and you know that your frame implies that you're a world champion, right?

    If I REALLY want to do this frame justice, I'd replicate Bettini's exact setup from Tour de France. It would have a Campagnolo Record group kit and roval fusee carbon wheels. But I'm not a campy fan and I don't think those wheels could support my clydely stature.

    My first group will be the Ultegra SL, if they turn out to be good then maybe I'll forego the dura-ace upgrade.

    And what are you implying by saying the frame implies I'm a world champion?! I AM a world champion, this frame will imbue me with the powers of Paolo Bettini (aka Il Grillo).

    I heard Bettini may decide to retire at the end of the season, so he might not be at the next Tour of California.

    sweet frame!

    but IMHO you should build it with campy...

    But... but....... Shimano is just as good and about 2/3 the price.

    Campagnolo is just like a Ferarri... it isn't any better than the rest, but if you can afford one, why not?

    Wow! That's a slick looking frame. If you don't mind me asking, how much does something like that run, I'm assuming there's no room to bargain on that(seeing how I'm reading that it's a rare color).
