    Haven't heard that in years! Roman's SS was sooooo wicked. Pink with Hello Kitty painted all over it. What ever happened to him? He did some legendary shit in 100 mile races when I was into that stuff.

    I think he was a part of a bike shop in State College, then went for a MFA in photography...maybe a significant other as well if I remember correctly. his poster from IF was hysterical.

    This bike is breaking my heart. The bike is light - 18lbs without even trying to make it light. I bet I could get one or two more pounds off it with zippy parts and wheels, ea$y. Emphasis on the $. But the frame was a custom for someone else (I bought it used) and even though the bike rides really well - excellently in fact - I am not its master. Like a great pair of pants that binds slightly in the wrong place. But that's no fault of the bike. It is a great bike. A real whip on climbs. Just zips right up, as long as my legs are willing. The first bike I've had where I spend a lot of time in the drops, instead of only when there is a head wind or I am trying to make up time to get back home before dinner. Now that I have the Zanconato though, I haven't ridden it at all. Zilch nope nada. Not sure what to do about that.

    That is a seriously nice looking bike.
    Like a good candidate to stash at the in-laws place or something.
    But if you're really not gonna ride it, there's probably someone on this forum for whom it'll fit like a pair of well-worn jeans. No shame in acknowledging it and moving on. Buy some sick wheels with the proceeds.
    My CJ was not built for me either but I lucked out.

    Yeah, that's what I've been thinking. But winter gives me an excuse to move slowly on any permanent decisions. ;-)

    Sure, what the heck. Measuring by sight and with a digital level, so take these measurements with a grain of salt, but they look similar to what I remember when I bought it. HT=18cm; TT=56cm; ST=59cm C-C/61cm C-T; HT & ST angle=72. The original fork had a rake of 50 I think, but the fork on it now is a 43 which to me works a lot better. Plus the ENVE is stiffer than the original bouncy fork, which was an Ouzo Pro.

    Edit: just found notes that say head angle is 73 and seat angle is 72.5. Top tube is level. Bike is from 2006, built in Somerville.
