    If you don't like it I will have my legs lengthened a la Ethan Hawke in "Gattaca" just to be able to stand over it. That bike looks great. Not helping my rampant bike lust.

    Looking good Lionel. I got word that mine is shipping on Monday!

    On a plane now with the Lobster and the SR RS group.... Looking forward to building this up jetlagged later this week. Paul had thrown away all the shipping boxes when I picked up the bike at his shop so he actually gave me a very nice crate works bike box. I am always nervous when I hand off the bike box to baggage handlers....

    That thing looks like it's going to make other bikes cower in fear. Nice work.

    That looks great Lionel.
    Auk's words to live by:
    Blow up and pin a picture of M. Bartoli on your wall. When you achieve that position, stop. Until then, stretch, ride, stretch, ride, eat less, and ride more.

    If it were me, I'd be more concerned about being too soft for the frame...
    "As an homage to the EPOdays of yore- I'd find the world's last remaining pair of 40cm ergonomic drop bars.....i think everyone who ever liked those handlebars in that shape and in that width is either dead of a drug overdose, works in the Schaerbeek mattress factory now and weighs 300 pounds or is Dr. Davey Bruylandts...who for all I know is doing both of those things." - Jerk
