Hey everyone. Finally got my SV road finished. Check out the little blog that they just posted about it. They have better pictures on their flickr site then I could ever manage here--so have a look.

Absolutely stunning design.
And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

I have to say, your Baum Corretto is one of my favorites!

The frame is a 54--or medium I think. Stock geometry. I probably could have fit on the next size down, but the head tube is quite a bit shorter and I would have needed the dreaded stack of spacers. Next time I will go custom and make the seat tube a bit shorter with a bit more slope. My Ira Ryan is full custom of course, and we pretty much just took the SV geo and tweaked it a bit.

Wow. I would be happy with one of those. Or maybe I won't be happy until I have one of those. Congrats on the "new" ride.
