Hey guys,

I've been waiting for my team bike for some time now, and I've finally picked it up from the mechanic today! That should have happened a couple weeks ago, but I'm glad they're finally ready.

First off: I'm a crap ass photographer, and I don't have any decent camera or location for shooting pics, so please, bear with me on the quality of the pics.

Secondly: Bottle cages will probably arrive next week, as will the pedals (the new DA ones). During classics/stage raced the team provides the wheels (either Rigida DPX laced to DA hubs, DA (10v.) clinchers or FIR speedlites laced to DA hubs), for crits I'll be using the black shamals (clincher), for training old wheels.

Btw, the red is a lot darker than it is in the pic with my name on it.

Looks good Manman althought I liked the design of the '06 Van Vliet - Gazelle Teambike more.
looking forward seeing you riding on that bike, I saw you on Monday during training on another bike right?
thought first I saw your brother riding :lol: you're looking totally different in the Van Vliet clothes instead of WWV

Is van Vliet riding Giro hellmets instead of Bell in '07 season?
