Hello everyone!
I’m living in Saitama of Japan.
My English is poor, so you may not be able to understand my broken English.

Here is my new ride for 2006:
S-Works Tarmac 2006 frameset (Full Carbon, about 1200g w/head set bearings, 52cm, fork 375g@220mm steerer)
Dura-ace 7700 STI, BR, RD, FD, CN, CS (395g, 320g, 195g, 85g, 290g, 175g)
FSA Carbon Pro Elite Compact Crankset (530g, w/ 48T chain ring of 5-arm XTR)
FSA Plutinum Pro Ti BB (190g)
Fukaya Carbon Seatpost (<150g@270mm, <$50)
Nitto M-184 STI80 Handle bar (280g (HEAVY but stiff, and fits me & shape of STI))
Dixna Achilles stem 80mm (<110g, <$40)
Fizik Arione saddle(250g)
Bontrager XXX Lite tubular 2005 (1200g w/o QR, QR=80g)
Vittoria Corsa Evo CX Tubular (280g)
Speedplay Zero Ti (160g)

Total weight is supposed to be about 6.8kg, but I didn’t actually measure the weight.
The frame is very stiff, gives good “shock damping” feeling, and has nice paint scheme (I think :>). However, my bike seems not so light compared to other bikes on this forum.
What is the effective weight saving point ??

It is the powertap pro's CPU. It is originally in yellow :cry:, so I painted it grey.

I use it with my training wheel built with powertap hub and open pros.

That is veeeery sexy! I was looking into one of those but my wallet would bite my fingers off! Say, I'm in Japan (Tokyo) at the moment too! :P :P
In the meantime, I also have a tarmac, here it is

Hi, jimaizumi
Nice tarmac in 05(right?) Gerolsteiner color 8)... i think it's better than 06 Gerolsteiner's...
Of course i'm jealous of your ZGs :) .

I often ride around Arakawa, Tokigawa and Ogose.
Where is your riding area?

Well Ive just got back into cyclng a year ago and have been around everywhere but still have not managed to figure out how to get to Arakawa but after 5yrs, I've finally bought a map....should be there every weekend to get a good 70km's in....Remember to give me a quick aisatsu if you see me, I'll be sure to do the same! :lol:
Despite NOT being an avid fan of RED :( , I do fancy the Fritz paint scheme! It took me long enough to find the Gerolsteiner edition so I'm pretty happy w/ my purchase! How do you find your bike?

I also had been considering gerolstiner's as the next ride, however I was struck by flitz's in there :).
