I'll try not to order the 404's, but it's going to be hard.

Group: Shimano Dura-Ace 7800 double, 53T/39T, 12T-25T, 172.5 mm.

Handlebar: Cinelli Ram or Deda 215.

Stem: Colnago/Cinelli forged thingy, I don't know what it's called, 100 mm, or the Ram.

Seatpost: Colnago Carbon.

Saddle: Fi'zi:k Arione Carbon or Selle San Marco ERA Pro Titanium.

Wheels: Zipp 404 Tubular, maybe.

Tires: Vittoria Corsa Evo CX, or some Continentals.

Waiting for my new shaving implement to arrive. I'm sick of cheap razors that give me razor burn, and crappy electrics that don't do a good job....so I'm going back to what I used in high school....a straight razor. Picked up a nice brand new 5/8 Carbon steel model for $25 shipped. Now to find a pharmacy nearby that sells brushes and shaving soap.

Only reason I stopped shaving that way was when I was 17 I dropped it, breaking the blade, and was too young to buy a new one...and my parents kept whining that they were too dangerous....so pretty much from that time on I only shaved once every 3 weeks. Razor burn sucks...seriously. I guess once you go straight razor, you never want anything else.

I got that one in a garage sale, with a good conditioned strop and stone for $40.

All it takes is one day where you're feeling kind of shaky and your bathroom has suddenly been painted red.

That actually sounds cool. Back to basics. You'll have to get a towel warmer.

How often do you have to sharpen the razor?

I haven't had problems with razor burn once I started shaving in the shower.

I would never try a real razor seeing as my hands shake like crazy. My bathroom would have red splotches all the time!

I'm eating lunch (stuffed zucchini, rice, raspberry frozen fruit bar) and catching up on BF and on news.

*sigh* That sounds yummy. I had Taco Bell. Busy, busy time.

I don't see why you guys don't try waxing. Waxing is great.

You strop it before every shave, and sharpen it usually every 4-6 months, depending on your hairs and how much shaving you actually do with it (I have a goatee I fully intend to keep).

Strop is that leather strap you see hanging from a barber's chair. It's used to straighten the edge of the razor, so that the edge is as straight as possible. An unstropped blade will cause nicks.

Only if you absolve me of any responsibility for paying for any damages the bike may incur when I jump it off your roof. And in return, you can ride my awesome Haro.

Facial scrub in the shower, then baby oil to the face, then lather up and shave, all while in the shower. No razor burns and smooth as a baby's behind.

Recovering from 40 minutes of intervals, catching up on BF reading, trying to decide whether to go to the movies tonight, wondering if my bike will be ready at the LBS before the TT race this Thursday.

go to the movies ( I saw Pirates II). They confiscated our candy that we'd snuck in, but my friend, James Bond-style, snuck out, found it behind the counter where they put it, grabbed it and brought it back in.

I just got back from 2 laps in CP w/ another BF'er who's screenname escapes me at the moment. I only did 2 laps cuz the first lap burnt out my legs and I didn't know that until the 2nd lap. We may have seen another BF'er who was riding a fixie w/ track drops, helmetless, pretty and a consistent top 3 finisher in alleycats. I say may have cuz she went flying by before I could get a good look.

Back to work after running some quick errands and grabbing a quick dinner. I noticed that someone had stolen the valve caps on my tires on my car. They were there when I checked my tire pressures on Saturday night. Whatever... I won't miss them anyway. The weight weenie in me tells me that my car is now a few grams lighter, and it's unsprung rotational weight to boot.
