We bought it as a complete bike. Mostly 105 with some Ultegra. The biggest issue right now is that it came with 44cm bars and I need 40cm! I'm picky and waiting until I can get my FSA compact bars.

52. I would think it would come with a more narrow bar, but nope. It's okay, I don't like the shape/feel of the stock bars anyway and found the aluminum version of the compact carbon bars that I love.

Very nice. But the real question is, do you really have room for two more bikes?

Not really.

Edited to add: There wasn't room for ONE more (for him) but miraculously we found the room when it became HIS and HERS.

Brandy, you should post a picture of the bedroom with all those bikes. I tried to count but then George told me how many there were. Of course now I've forgotten...

Shhhhhhhh...you're not supposed to tell everyone how incredibly cool I am for allowing all of those bikes to live in the bedroom.

I had the legs, but my lungs weren't there. On the second lap at the top of Cannon my throat closed up as I was going over the bricks and all I could think was PLEASE LET ME GET SOME AIR SO I DON'T FALL OVER! I just couldn't recover my breathing after that.

Right now I'm more upset that I don't seem to be able to shake whatever I have. I'm getting antsy and wanted to race Anthill this weekend but I think I'll be sitting that out too.
