New Bike - Pictures

Finally got around to take some pictures of the new bike. Enjoy







I love the carbon weave on the frame

"Mean"... Yeah, that's the word I would use.
That, and "sexy". Nice also comes to mind.
If I hadn't got the LeMond, I would've gotten a Scott

Thanks for the comments, let's see:

Terrieman - The bike came with a Selle race saddle and I swapped that out for a Avatar which after 100 mi I found was pure agony for me just like the Alias I tried before it. I went back to my tried and true cushy Race Lux saddle.

BSLeVan - The cages are Ravx Alpha carbon cages. They are about $38 ea but hey if you got a carbon bike then you need carbon cages.

Tom - white is perfect for cars down here, I own two white cars, but I will stick with neked CF if I can. The older Scotts were even better in this regards. I expect that VVs SL has no paint on it all.

Frugal - Only big ring down here so I drop it down to the 21 or 23 when stopping/starting, normally riding 15-19. Never had a problem, but you know I knew when I posted the picture that someone would notice that, good eyes. My LBS says with the new thin 10-spd chains you should be able to ride all gears on all chain rings.

RoMad - those are the new Ultegra 6620 pedals

Only additions I want to add are a FSA K-Force carbon stem and FSA K-wing carbon bars. I need to wait a bit on that since it another $400-$500. BTW as shown it is 17lbs or 7.7kg.

Wow! gorgeous... I'd love to see that riding through dappled light to see what that weave does. I love the water bottles, too. It's a serious* looking bike.
