YEEEEEEEEEEEHA!

I'm back in the game, or soon will be! Thanks to my speedplay inserts sales in the last couple weeks I'll be on a new bike in a month or so. Plus since I sold all of my stuff I have more money to build an even nicer bike! HAHAHA

Guess it was kind of obvious that I was back in asking all of those questions about which wheels are better and what frame is the best. Ah, it is a good day indeed. :

This time I'm building the best possible bike I can, money is no object here, just pure performance. I'm not really going for the lightest, rest asured it will be light, but I'm looking more towards absolute performance.

Only things definate so far are all Dura-ace 04, Fizik Airione saddle, and most likely American Classic 420 16/20 bladed. I really want a fast machine, I can out climb anyone, but my flatland is a little weak, thats why I'm looking at the 420's and maybe the Litespeed Vortex, very quick frame.

Any suggestions for this bike are welcomed. It probley won't be less then 15lbs, but it will be the lightest and fastest damned bike around. :twisted:

Hey, can't keep a good man down, huh? Glad you are back. God, you make more quick moves than my email can keep up with! All of you weight weenies out there. I bought Superlite's CAT brakes and the deal went perfectly. This is a man you can trust. I do. I like the brqkes too.

what frame are you looking at getting? and how much are you going to spend on this bike (you say money is no object but it surely was a few days ago). i would look at the scott cr1 team issue. if you like integrated bars take a look at the kuota viking bars, and why dont you try go get the cr420; MantraPro said he might be able to get them (im saying just the rims) pair them up with some nice light spada hubs :wink:

are you going to use the dura ace cranks, or are you going to get carbon ones? brakes? will you get the cats again, or did you not sell your pair?

Bet you can't. Is that why you had a 25T rear cassette on your last bike?

Only fat/slow blokes ride 25's :D

No, I had a 12-25 because when I train I spin at times. Extra high cadence helps build speed and endurence. When ever I'm riding my chain rarely even see's the 23t, only in desprite climbs. Besides, I live in CO, ever hear of the ROCKY MOUNTAiNS. You try riding just a 25t up pikes peak.

You say old bloated guys ride a 25t, I got news for you, siminoe, armstrong, hearas and most other world class climbers ride 27t, even up to 30t in the tour's mountain stages. Guess they must be old, fat and bloated to huh?

I don't see you as a CAT 2 racer so, "I'd shut your mouth, or I'll fill it with my fist." Ewen Mcewen :twisted:

You have a seriously bad attitude man. It was a little jab not to be taken seriously at all. "got news for me" most tour stages only require a 23T. Only stages in the Giro like L'agrilu (sp?) require a 30 or so. That quote was from ROBBIE Mc EWAN who the hell is Ewan?

You dont see me as a second cat? what based on my few posts on this site. Please share with me some of your fine victories.

Sort out the chip on your shoulder man.

MAMA SAID KNOCK YOU OUT wtf??
