    I've only got a couple hundred miles on them as the weather has turned to crap here in MN, but they are much better than the previous rims. I've got 1.25's and 1.45's with the same hubs, spokes and tires (used to have 45 clinchers and 1.65's as well) and these roll better in the wind, brake better and are stiffer in corners. There wasn't anything wrong with any of the other rims. These are just way better. Looks like they will have the 8.9's out in a couple of months and I would love to try the 6.7's as well.

    It was actually an eBay find. It's taken me a while to get around to take some pictures that did the frame justice. Here are some teasers:

    Oops, I meant to follow up with a photo of the full bike...

    Nick, yes, this is the Enve fork that you color-matched—it's perfect! And the ride of the bike is sublime!

    That was my original intention as well, but I would have been the experiment at the time. Went with the flock instead and I don't regret it. Sometimes it's nice to be a little understated, but I would most likely go gloss logos next time around.

    I bought this frame MONTHS ago and went out for my first ride today! (FYI, I had a baby boy just a few weeks after receiving it, so I have good reason for letting this sit)

    I built it up with Chorus 11spd, DT240/Excellight, Aliante/Cyrano seating, Easton EA70bar/3t stem and some Vredestein tires.

    All in all, it was a great 60km today. This is the first carbon frame I have ever ridden, short of spins around the block on friend's C50s (meh.) I measured it out to match the contact points to my Speedvagen and it seems on paper to be an exact match, but when riding, it was a bit smaller and easier on the back. I might try a 130mm stem to push myself off the front a bit more.

    I hold my Vagen as a benchmark for fit, so basically, this one is a shade too small, but very rideable and a thing of beauty. I will ride it with a smile and will likely sell it someday to scare up funds for a custom frame (for me).

    Thanks to the 'J posse' for their contributions: James for the frame set, Jay for the headset, Joel for the wheels and Jeff for the seat post.
