    Here is my Z3c, recently updated with 7900; have not ridden it yet due to extreme cold here. Bar and tape are temporary..

    That bike is ridiculous in all the right ways. Wow.

    Man, I would love to; as I type this it is sleeting.. I can't wait to move to Tucson!

    Believe me, I will ride it the first half-way decent day we have!

    Hey Too Tall - finally added some new photos of the Z3 (see the first post in this thread) - new handlebar tape prompted me to re-shoot it, but I still am not sure the perspective is correct. Thoughts on shooting bikes?

    Default eff'd pixs?

    Suspect you're using a wide angle lens, which is causing distortion. For most digital cameras a 35mm lens will "see" more like the human eye. Terrific bike!

    a little box showed up today...
    rain coming in the morning, so looks like the ride gets bumped,
    and the build should be finished today.

    yeah grant! z1? can you post some seat stay details?

    also, where can i get some cable stop adjusters like you have? i just routed my ferrules directly into the frame and it would be nice to adjust as needed.

    funny...
    Tom at Parlee sent me some pictures he took when my frame was in process,
    i'm about 99% sure these build process photos in this story are of my frame.

    very cool.

    that'd be a fun place to visit and just watch things get made.

    i'd sit back and do that all day, no problemo. a good sandwich, snacks and some beers, comfy chair....heaven.
