    Yes it did. I still feel bad about the shipping issues we had with that frame.

    I love the cross bike. Is that a mat finish, or gloss? I'm sure it's about my size. let me know if you get tired of it (yeah right). The bad thing is, I'm so slow at cyclocross, I'd get laughed off the course if I showed up on a bike like that.

    This is why I wear earplugs.

    Don't sweat the shipping chip another minute...great color, BTW!

I can look at a finished bike and say "yeah, that's cool", but i can't build one in my head and get it right the first time, like some people can.
    Beautiful bike, but that crank...my eyes! It must go. I don't know why Shimano insists on making their top end cranks look more and more like they should be sold at Walmart.

    that bike is rad. i think you win. but i'm a vagen guy for life.
    This thread and especially this post is pushing me toward snagging the '08 'vagen currently on offer in the classifieds and doing exactly as Swoop describes, thereby keeping my vanilla slightly more 'preserved' for the ages.

    am I nuts?

    I guess if the shit hits the fan with the wife I could give the look 585 that I just acquired (and love) the 'Brunk treatment' keeping the parts for the vagen.

    that's got to be the best looking bike in these neck of the woods. speaking of woods if you ever do any off roading, bikes that is, we should talk. i live in columbus, but one of my favorite places to ride is at great seal park.

    I found them at a veloswap a couple years ago. They are Specialized.

    Sweet Mother of God - that is so nice. I have seen this one before, and it is the archetype of a pure, high end steel cx frame. Perfect proportions. Great colour.

    Darren...many thanks. And to Steve, yeah, it's a matte finish. I'm not sure if the original owner spec'd the color or it was a Sasha/Scott choice.

    Yes, but don't let my Debbie know.

    Last March, our cycling club had a mini-handbuilt bike show fund raiser at my house for the the scholarship fund for one of our fallen club members. Some club members and I displayed our bikes.

    It has taken me months to figure out to resize the photos so I could post them. It was amazingly simple - I should have learned years ago.

    Darren, I think that was at Signature Cycle when I met you and if I could have slipped it out the door it would now be in RALEIGH>

    Carlos/Sacha,

    That is a stunning bike! The modern stem made to look like a quill is fantastic. So classic looking and yet so modern all at once. Wow..
