Wow!!! That is really hot! It even has internal cable routing through the chainstay. Very nice.

Does the front derailleur cable exit the hole above the bottom bracket and then bend around that chrome piece below the braze-on? I've never seen it done like that. Very interesting. Let us know how it rides.

Cool bike, who makes it?

Seriously, you need to take that UPS guy out for a drink or dinner or something.

This is actaully torture for me, I ordered a new Cervelo Dual from the east coast, they built it up Monday, and shipped it Tuesday, should be here tomorrow, would it be wrong to take the day off work to see it arrive?

I would take the day off. Please post pics... can't wait to see it!.. I should have my QR built and ready to roll by the end of the week. The rest of my components just arrived.

That is sweet. Is this build it yourself a much less expensive way to go? When I finally buy my tri bike, I wanna be prepared. So I'm researching the hell out of bikes in the 1600 to 2000 price point. Should I even consider building it? I don't have tools or any bike building know-how. Would the LBS build it for you from the frame up like you're doing?
