I'd say it's a burlesque show, but it lacks tattoos.

i have red and blue cotton sitting waiting for me to have time to put it on. Though, I might change the levers out to campy first.

I will use the red tape.

It looks great. Have you ridden it yet? If so, what did you think?

i agree. its smaller than i normally ride (bbw), and i do believe the head tube to be shorter (more upright - thats what she said) than other bikes i've seen that size. It's misleading. I didnt think it would fit, but it fits me as it sits. I normally ride 63cm.

The only meaning of "bbw" I can think of doesn't seem to apply to what you are writing about. Please pardon my ignorance: what did you mean by "bbw"?

Nice Frejus, but my SO sez wtf, btw. LOL!
