Lovely machine, John! I had some dialogs with Tim a couple of years back, he's been living in Taiwan for quite a few years, now machining high-end camera accessories. Company is still called Match, Match Technical now, website is http://www.matchtechnical.com. OT, but it's interesting to see where his involvement with bicycles took him.

Very nice!

I picked up my 560EX last season, but I'm ashamed to say I didn't get it set up 'like I like it' until recently (you know, babies and preschoolers and stuff like that). Now it has new tires/tubes, brake pads, brake lever hoods, cables, housing and handlebar wrap, plus a long Cinelli stem that fits better and coordinates well with the previous owner's Cinelli bars. (It came with a very short Dura Ace stem did not work for me). I took it out for its maiden voyage today for an organized fun ride, and fully realized the joy of a 531 frame and a better fitting bicycle. Definitely more aggressive geometry than I'm accustomed to, but still very comfortable.
