    Nice Ben.

    I particularly like your wife's new bike.

    Tres chic (or something like that) - I'm not really that cool - so take it at face value.

    It's going to be sweet. I got a first hand look at that frame/fork over the weekend and it's a nice one.

    You're gonna love it.

    That seat cluster with the scallops and fastback is over the top cool. Congrats... looks like it turned out great.

    The headtube WOULD be pretty cool chromed, Ben and I agree, but it wasn't prepped to be left that way, thus it's going to be badge, lugs, and fork crown chromed.

    I gave Ben some inspiration from the world of Italian autos, which he also has a bit of an affinity for, thus, I am just waiting to see what comes of it. Red, most likely, but Ben is in charge. I told him to make it his own.

    Would you do RED or 7900? I have both.

    7900 without question. What wheels?

    Sweet bike! I have always had a soft spot for shiny lugs and that color red. Reminds me of De Rosas and Cinellis from the '80s.

    I'd build it with 7900 if those are your two options.
