all I need is the braze on mount plate and a front derailleur to have a complete build. My bb and crankset came today.....it will ultimately me all Veloce 10 speed, but as long as I have to share wheels with my Bianchi, the shifters (mirage 9 speed) and rear der. (same) have to stay.

HAWT!!! What, no red handlebar tape, red saddle, and red tires?? :D Don't worry, there's still time ;)

I'm guessing you'll keep us posted when your build is finished?? :)

I don't care much for colored tires, besides I am sharing wheels with a Celeste Bianchi for now.....THAT would look ghastly with red tires.

Nice stuff. I love the simplicity of the paint job.

Your saddle is too high.

I don't like colored tires either. Unless black counts :)

rode it again today....apparently it does NOTHING about the wind.

sheeesh, what good is carbon if the wind affects it (or me)

My braze-on mount plate is in and I am picking it up this evening. As soon as I have it i will order the front derailleur. It'd be nice to be able to shift...LOL...

Well I can shift from the 53 to the 39 with my foot, but i haven't figured out how to go the other way yet.

The more I look the more I like it. Is that the original paint? It looks better than most of the trek paintjobs I've seen recently.

long story but no, it is custom paint, those are not decals, the TREK is painted too. The 2007 was ONLY available in blue. I have the braze on mount bracket on and it is RIGHT....I will be ordering the front derailleur tonight or tomorrow.

That's a sweet looking bike!

It's really nice to see a carbon bike with a simple paintjob.

Gonna have to steal yer bottlecap trick for the DeBernardi. Shame there's no good italian beers.
