Medium, 2009. Was a stock DA7900 bike, and I rebuilt it with Red, k:1 saddle, ritchey WCS aluminum stem and Ritchey carbon evolution bars.
Pic was taken before I finished trimming the brake cables and putting bar tape on.

snipped. please don't quote the previous post... thanks. Powerful Pete

I would be very interested to see pics of the frame / bike. Narrowed my choice of new frame to a TCR Advanced or a Colnago CLX 2.0. I'm moving toward the Giant, especially as we have Giant store opening nearby soon.

Nice wheels - Is that a custom spray job?

Dont think its custom, just the euro and us markets have different paintjobs to that of the oz market for some reason

sawyer - that is going to be downright gorgeous. I can't wait to see it. I was going to go for that frameset, but pulled the trigger on the sl at the last moment. In the US, all of the literature says gloss white for the color. If I saw that frame in person, I may have went for it over the SL.. . WOW!

Here's how mine is looking at the moment:

That SL looks great.
The frame really has a nice balance with the decals and the orange bits make it look quick. I really like the orange. Its different in the right way.

Really nice looking build.

@743power - thanks! your SL is beautiful and has enough colour to make it interesting.

@stiffee69er (great username BTW :lol: ) ... think it was soup in that orange pot.

build should be done by next week. I'll post an update and some pics of the other TCR Advanced i have too.

Sawyer, please make a separate thread for your bike when it is finished. I am looking forward to it big time. When I was planning my bike out, I was going back and forth in my head between R11 and red, but I ended up with red for a few reasons. It's hard to predict the future, but my next road bike will most likely use campa.
