I finally completed my first bike build with the help of RBR threads, Zinn & the Art of Road Bike Maintanence and Park Tools. I'm waiting for 1st pair of Sidis to arrive from PBK to install a pair of Keo carbons. My LBS flipped the stem upon the initial purchase b/c I wasn't flexible enough but I will re-flip it back to its original position now that I've improved my flexibility. In short, I really enjoyed the entire process and learned a lot about wrenching. Now for the pics:

@2ndGen - Not sure of a final weight but I will figure it out soon.

@2cans - The frame is from 2009. I think I could have chosen a black CAAD9 frame at the time of purchase but my previous hybrid was black and I thought the blue was an attractive alternative.

Both the 2009 blue and black frame options rule... Your pics don't show how awesome the blue looks in sunlight (I have the same frame).

Is that a Specialized saddle? Nose looks tilted up a lot but maybe the angle of the pic...?

What bottle cages are those? They looks pretty sweet... Enjoy the ride!!!

It's a toupe team saddle and today was my 1st time riding with it. It seemed less comfortable than my toupe gel, but I I don't forsee any problems as I adjust to it. The nose was too tilted in the pic and I adjusted it before today's ride.

The bottle cages are Specialized Mantacages. I thought they blended into the overall color scheme of the bike and they happened to be the most affordable [email protected] LBS.
