I am actually getting around to that....I am still finishing it for the upcoming race season.


What class racer are you? How can you ride a 12lb bike?

We need to see some pics of your bike. Whats the hold up dude? At least give us a spec list.

Damn.... I might have to make a trip back to Ohio just to check your ride out... Yikes, that IS sweet man! When you get your new frame, do post pics. That's going to be wicked. 789 for a frame... oh... crap!!! that is crazy talk my friend!! Crazy.

What's with Ohio, I just broke my frame last month also.
