great bike! i was wondering, do tattoos prevent you from normal sweating? does it make your body feel overheated at times when riding?

Congrats El Flaco! Super bike! A real beauty!

About the M5 brakes. I ride them too and I think they are at least equally good or even better than Campagnolo Record. And much lighter anyway! They outperform the 0-gravity’s all the way. The M5 brakes have a very direct grip and are fine in the braking feel. You can feel the wheel! Campagnolo Record has a complete different feel. From a technical vieuw these are the best "High Tech" brakes available. At least IMHO.
My bike is Italian so it is Nervosa and of course has Anorexia I like them thin!

hehehehe !!! Tattoos are actually made by poking millions of holes in your skin. That's why I have a better excretion system than anybody else... so it kind of works out... the more you sweat, the less you weight. :roll: :lol: Weight Weenie's Colorful technique!!! :wink:

Thank you !!!! The "sticker" was a looong process... it was actually hand-painted by my "artsy" beautiful wife... First she removed all the clear coat taking the painted RECORD off... sanding (very fine sandpaper, sometimes using also the buffering part of a nail filer) everything to the bare carbon. Then she hand painted the words trying to use the same font. When it dried, coats and coats of clear gloss were added (lightly sanding in between each coat) A lot of work, but the results are amazing ! It's being four months and 12,000 km and still looks like new. :D
