    This Speedy little number is heading out to the upper midwest tomorrow for a Speedy little Chick. I can take credit for the frame and build, but the paint design is all her's. Love it. It looks so good that it is Baller even.

    Good grief Tom and SpeedyChick, goooood golly.

    At a loss for words. That's one heck of a solid build, very involved without looking fussy or complicated.

    Daaaang.

    Wow! It looks great and I'm going to be listening for that delivery truck next week. Looking forward to riding this (and the IndyFab will appreciate a break from all the gravel). First bike with Di2 and am hoping I like it.

    I've been trying to stay quiet and patient while this was in the works. It's been many months since the trip to The Barn and a great visit with Tom, June and Jeff.

    Thanks for getting this out in the midst of a very busy week and exciting week for you.

    Dang Speedy,
    I didn't think you could out do that Indy Fab of yours, but this is stellar. Love the paint job too. How are you going to chose which to ride?
    Did you sell your cross bikes?
    Make sure to let me know when you decide to put either of those two up for sale ;)

    Default Spectrum Ti on the road

    Getting to know this bike has been a blast. The ride is just outstanding.

    Thanks. Had fun sorting out the build and paint. Have a CX bike yet and a fellow forumite snagged the original one last year.
    The IF is looking forward to some company. Could be a hard choice on which to ride. The Spectrum is a bit more aggressive/road oriented. The IF is setup with a third bottle mount, eyelets for rack/fenders and slightly more relaxed and takes 33s. I've ridden that on everything. The Spectrum is going to be a bit more svelte but will run 28s. Should have it today and am looking forward to taking it out. Leading another intro to mountain biking ride this eve so first ride may not be until Tuesday.

    Usually I wouldn't be cheering that the equipment I need to use isn't ready but today I am.
    The Spectrum is ready to go and I'm just waiting on my ride partner so we can head out.

    So now I'm 8 months in, just over a year since I first visited the barn.
    This thing is great--best bike I've ever had the pleasure to ride. I had a stock serotta hsg ti-carbon job before, which was really great, but it's not a fair comparison. I think I have my position adjusted to the millimeter and degree for a while now, but I'm still getting to know the bike.
    I was too lazy to take off the fenders this summer. I realized that it doesn't matter. It's maybe a pound, and, with proper eyelets, they're so solid, that I forget they're there. Ive mixed it up in the hard philly rides--the drives and vino velo, without any problem. Guess its a sleeper to the aero-helmet crowd, but I've had more than one dude come up on a group ride, compliment my frame and rave a bit about Tom.
    I could rave about tom for a while too.
    The other day an alu bracket holding my fender under the brake bridge snapped.
    Tom had probably foreseen this, as he had the underside of the brake bridge tapped for an M5 bolt. 2 minutes with the drill and a visit to the neighborhood hardware store, and now i'm back in business (probably for good).

    ps how do I rotate this thing?

    That tandem and those handlebars are especially sweet! Very nice.
    That two-seater kept you and Jeff out of mischief for a few months.

    Hey Lionel:
    Although I know that the orange is really bright, I don't remember it being that bright. Is it just the rarified air and autumn light on Ventoux that gives it that look? It almost looks as though I shot a pearlescent candy orange instead of the RAL pigment you ordered.

    too bad they they were so skimpy with the downtube diameter,
    I think there is still an unused mm left on the bottom bracket shell.
