Wheeeev! That's a bit over my students budget :D

@ Jeffr

Are you going to use it for TTs, or TRI?

The price isn't all that much more than a standard Cervelo P3 Carbon & you get a sweet custom bike! :D

Who makes a rear disc that would fit though? :shock:

I know, but I can't afford a P3C either... :(

Me neither - I just picked up a used Lemond TT frame & fork (TIAA-Cref team issue) on eBay for $300. That will work just fine for me!

DRILL your Walser... *cringes*... Why do you need a bottle cage on there anyway? What length of TT's do you plan on using it for? Camelbak under skinsuit?

Nice frame pickup, I saw that. $300 and I dig the paint.

Here's the pic from eBay. I will be building it up with a Corima clincher disc in the rear & a Mavic Carbone up front. Still not decided on an aerobar setup, but probably just an FSA base bar, extensions, & brake levers. SRM crankset - of course! I can't do TT's without the SRM - my mind wanders too much.

Here's a picture of me going on my first ride. Saddle was slightly too low. I've also brought the bars up 1cm and back .5cm. I now also have water bottle mounts thanks to carbonfiberone who did a great job while I was nervously watching him drill my frame. :-)

More info on the build and ride later. Hopefully more pictures too. The fork still needs to be painted and I'm going to adjust the chain line slightly but it's really starting to come together.
