Sorry, my crappy camera just doesn't do this thing justice. to much money spent on bikes to afford a decent camera! Now if I could just hang out at TerryB's in New Mexico or Alien's in Arizona, think of all the exploring I could do.................

hope you're fast.

That's not a bike for a barrier-stumbler, that's for sure. Like the green headset. Do you mind recapping your buying experience with IF?

Awesome build

Ditto on the green CK. From what I see locally, I almost forgot they made colors other than black and silver.

on the roadie forum, Lots of members wanted to know the IF experiance, excellent. They delivered on the exact day they said they would, whole thing was a positive. I'd buy another IF anyday.

That's beautiful Phat. I'd also like to see it with different color tires, see what that does for the look. Love the headset touch. I used to have a Planet X but sadly let it go in a moment of weakness. BTW, does Terry B own a shop? Just wondering from the comment above about New Mexico.

You have good taste my friend!

It's called his barn, and it's choked full of beautiful bikes, and since he builds them all himself I'm guessing he's well stocked in tools. I just need a few bails of hay to sleep on and I can go exploring.....

Looks like you spent too much money on bikes to afford a decent couch too. :D Don't worry, I understand your priorities. I share them. I'd prolly sell a kidney to get a Vanilla cross bike with S3 tubing.

Beautiful bike, man. I like the colors......the green CK headset is a nice touch. Really nice. Normally I don't dig Wound Up forks, but that one looks good on yer bike. You'll have to let us know how it performs.

At our place we don't have haybales, but we do have a fouton. The fouton is there to disuade inlaws from staying too long. Personally, methinks the floor is more comfortable than the damned fouton.

Alas, sad new on my part: the Zero Gravity cranks are further delayed. They won't be touching the sweaty palms of customers' hands until at least mid to late April. So I asked the LBS to order me up a set of Claviculas in the compact flavor. Sure they won't be here until the end of April, too, but they are a known, lust worthy quantity, whereas teh Zero G's are a big unknown. Hell, the testers haven't even got their Zero G cranks, yet.

I'm tryin' to get rid of, damn it, but fate is conspiring against me. The wheel fund had to be dumped into the FixTheSubaruTranny Fund......which ended up needing to be a lot bigger than I'd expected. Oh, well, it's not like I would've had the wheels by now anyway. Ligero posted on Weight Weenies that the new White Industries (hubs I'll be getting) H1 rear hubs just came in. So even iffin' I'd payed him already, the wheels still wouldn't be here.

Here's a piccie that he posted over at WW.

That came out really nicely. Love the orange, my travel bike is going to be a similar color. I also like the way the green HS works with it.

Your photos are great, don't diminish them.

Alex Crostini R3.1 rims. Ligero says they're all weighing in at 370-372ish grams. Pretty rims. Juanmoretime has antied up for a set. I think I'll ask to have the hubs anodized black. Always need more black.
