    litespeed ultimate: on grad student budget
    Here's some bike porn- I put this together ove rthe course of a month hand picking great deals and reselling old parts. I just finished it this week. Enjoy! PS There is a new record carbon derailleur on the other side-- I should have photo'd the other side. All parts are brand new-- dean ti stem/post -- carbon record 10 derailleur/shifter, centaur elsewhere.

    I feel your pain (and your gain)
    as an impoverished student, I am totally with you. Hopefully i can save up enough for my TCR composite early next year :(

    btw that's a pretty impeccable bike on a student's budget!

    Looks all too familiar- stashing the bike in your bedroom on the carpet due to lack of any other space:) I'm leaving grad school this year thank god- where you guys at, btw? I'm at UC Irvine.

    Nice ride! I'm a grad student too at Texas A&M (Chemistry). Trying to finish up all my work since I'm going back to the real world at the end of this month.

    I don't seem to get nearly enough sleep these days...

    hey
    that's an awesome bike on grad school budget. i'm in nyc, half way through my MS and can only dream about a Litespeed. back when i was living on campus had my ride chained to my bed in a room no bigger than some peoples' closets. ride EPX 303 with full Ultegra, bought on funds raised from TAing. enjoy the bike and good luck in the real world.
