That seems like a very nice line-up. Do you happen to have any pics for us?

Thank you, Sir. I will shortly. The look will be posing tonight and the Litespeed will probably be tomorrow or Friday as I am waiting on a few parts to complete the build.

Sounds like a great stable there, even if I might be a little biased... :wink:

Might I ask please what height you are...?


And some pic will be :thumbup:

Ahhhh, firgured as much!

How do you find your 595? I love mine and am seriously comfortable on it - however (maybe because of this) now I have issues finding other frames with a similar geometry that I'm going to be as comfortable on?

I have a CAAD with a 56 tt and previously ridden another bike with a 57.9 tt and found I felt too stretched out. The actual tt of 56.4 of the 595 though seems to suit me really well, but now makes it a struggle finding other bikes with similar geo's...

:(

Damn Look for being so spot on! (for me at least)

What do you mean?

I totally understand what you were talking about. This is the first bike that fits me to the "T". Unfortunately, it has spoiled me, that actually why I bought my litespeed, the geometry is very similar but it wont be destroyed if I crash it in a race.

Relax mate-just pretty funny how similar our builds are. Even down to the wheels I was looking at getting for it :shock: but sleep easy, I've no plans for a white saddle on this one...yet :twisted: :lol: :lol:

Yorba Linda! I grew up in Placentia, and went to Cal State Fullerton. Now I'm in Washington DC, but good old memories there.

Awesome bike, by the way. Though I couldn't pull off gold myself, but glad to see others can.

Right on! I go to CSUF too! Sucks because they don't have a cycling team (not even intramural)! But i have one more year until I retire and ride all day every day! I figure, in this economy, it would be easier to retire than try to find a job out of college so... :beerchug:
