Hi guys,

After having seen a few 695 introduced lately, I decided to reintroduce myself and my bike (all my posts were deleted last winter by error).
I have been following the forum for a long time, even thought I do not have the budget of some here, I really enjoy looking at the amazing builds that are posted here. I also enjoys quite a bit the "On the road" thread which has some amazing scenic pictures :shock: I wish I also had the budget to travel there, but with 2 young kids, money is not as available as I would wish :lol:

I have been cycling for quite a while, in my teenagers I road raced for about 5 years (an old Peugeot bike) before switching to MTB for a long period. I came back to road cycling about 5 years ago and I bought a Giant TCR which I upgraded slowly here and there. Last year, I made myself a gift for my 40 years old, and I bought a Look frameset on Ebay, it wasn't planified, the deal was just too good to let it pass ! It is not the color I wanted, I would have love a less flashy All black model, but at that price i am OK with it. I sold the Giant, I bought some pieces here and there and here it is. I also own a Felt F65x crossbike that I use as my commuter and an IBIS Mojo as my mud machine! :lol:

The only think I would change is the rear hub, I just hate that Zipp preload adjustment, it is impossible to remove the lateral movement from the wheel without compromising the fluidity of the spin.... anyway someday I will upgrade the hub or go for a set of Bora... :oops:

I know you mentioned you wanted more understated, but I'm really digging this paint scheme. Great looking bike!

Agree. Great bike, and BTW: I can't see many budget constraints on that one...

thanks Tomaz! If I had the money I would contact you :? good luck with your sale I sure they will go quickly. I had a set of Shamal Ultra that I sold to buy the Zipp and I just loved how smooth those were compared to the Zipp...
