looks very nice, i love black bikes. personally, i don't like the curved top tube of the tarmac. i think the cranks andthe zero g brakes are the highlights! have fun riding!

just been out for the inaugural ride and so far everything feels fantastic, the usual 'new bike' syndrome, but super smooth and very responsive.
going compact so far seems the right choice and the easton equipe bars have more reach than i'm used to...good thing i went for a shorter stem than usual.
had to buy horrible ambrosio bar tape but will replace that asap! and still have to get to a set of decent scales :o

Very nice. I'm considering one of these instead of a Look 585, thanks to certain comments made by a certain person on my club ride today....
