Outstanding frame and build components. If I were in the market, it'd be an Addict of some variety or another.

What's the thinking behind yellow tires / bar tape and red post / brakes?

I just thought that yellow, red and black would go well together. It turned out REALLY well i think. Its surprisingly MORE comfortable than my TCR Advanced SL, which i was not expecting.

What do you think of those wheels Doolop?

I really REALLY like them, they are stiff, light and affordable. They are built incredibly well, and rol has phenomenal support. I cant say enough good things about these wheels and the company. Best clinchers i have ever ridden.

Edit: Also bugman, if you ever come over to Bainbridge, lets ride.

Sounds like a plan Doolop (^_^)!

Don't know how I missed the Giant, but that one is sweet. Only 500 bones? Nice!

The handle bar tape is a bright but some riding will dull it down. I agree with Bugman. I like a bike that breaks the mold. Well done!
