    I'm an hour deep on a ride sitting on some adirondack chair at the Greenwich Aududon enjoying the sun and admiring the paint on this bike. This frame has about 30,000 miles on it and is ridden year round. There is not one spec of rust or peeling in sight.

    Only about 10K miles on mine. Such a great ride. I ride it less than I used to but it puts a smile on my face every time I ride it.

    OMG, those Impecs actually exist in the wild? How does the guy like it? I suppose he has to say he likes it even if he wouldn't say that in an unbiased state . . .

    He loves it (has a few other bikes too). Another riding buddy has the lamborghini version of this bike, talk about bling !

    I don't see an Impec, just a Twizzler.

    Or, hand-built vs robot-built. Conceptually, I love both...your photo juxtaposing the two says a lot about the wonderful choices available to cycling aficianados these days.

    fwiw I've ridden once or twice with a guy in my club who has an Impec. They're rare, but not unicorn-rare. He said he loves it.

    May I ask for some of your basic dimensions such as your height, frame ST/TT and stem length...?

    ATMO knows these things. I think it's a 55/56 top tube. 12cm stem.
    I'm around 5'11.

    A lot of the "fit" is also up to me and how I sit on the bike.

    Thanks BTW.

    A someone who does fits full time, this is the hardest concept to get across to clients.

    I was just curious as I'm a similar size (179cm) and your position looks not too stretched out or squashed up...well balanced.

    Looks like fun anyway... ;)

    If I had an RS, I think I'd want it to look just like that. Beautiful!
