That's one classy looking hoopty! Man I bet you fly up Rocky Hill on that beast. Be easy with this one and don't ever put it on top of your car!

How do you know when I took the pic?

P.S. Climbing? Chipotle first, climbing second, your house third.

Just found out the the "Limited Edition" means that my bike is 36/200... Anyone out there able to shed some more light on this? I'm new to LOOK and google hasn't proved too helpful.

Thanks!

That looks like the paint scheme for the 586 R-Light (I'm jealous). It's 100 grams lighter than the standard 586.

Thanks for the compliments guys.. this bike is a blast to ride and the cranks are silky smooth! Campy got it right with the Cult Bearings! She's still a bit on the heavy side for a Med. frame so any suggestions would be fun to hear...

Thanks, that's about all I could find out about it online... and it looks like only random "trade Companies" have them... but I'm still curious about the Limited 200 run?

Thanks Sawyer :thumbup:

My ride previous to this was a Wilier Cento Uno with Chorus 11 and Fulcrum Racing 1's. Also a very nice bike, light and stiff and ISP to boot... Unfortunately, I ran that bike into my garage with it still attached to the top of my car and it was less than a month old. My home owners insurance agreed to pick up the tab but I decided not to go with another Wilier simply because the dealer local to me is void of all things common sense or customer service.

So another LBS came to the rescue and not only helped me recover the value of my Wilier, but got me a great deal on the new set up. The frame wasn't on the floor so he brought it out from the back still in the box and said he didn't know anything about how they got it but they just never put it on the floor.

She rides exceptionally well and the wheels are freakin sweet. Smooth and totally silent. Got a little climbing in over the weekend and I was impressed to say the least.
