    Talking Just kidding!

    That was the idea...let's lighten up, everybody! No, I don't really do stuff like that, although I used to (if you can remember the 60s, you weren't really there).

    Beautiful bikes, all. I have a 2002 Tuscany, and it's a beauty, too, but it's not that light...

    What's with that pump dude?
    Take it off.

    Also, what's with those stems, strait up, 80mm. You need a dang flat stem, 130mm.

    How do you like the Easton SLX fork? I've heard that it's a little flexxy. Can you confirm how big you are, style of riding, and how it handles?

    Thanks,

    Although I do have an SLX on one of my bikes and it's just as stiff and SL on my Vortex or the Reynolds Ouzo Pro it replaced. I'm a very aggresive racer and weigh 158 lbs race weight.

    This is all getting me excited for the arrival of my vortex compact w/ksyrium sl's. Oh the torture this is like looking at your soon to be wife naked through a plexiglass window. Oh and on your wieght specs you didnt mention frame sizes either. (or I missed them).

    I built this one myself two years ago. I'm getting ready to upgrade to Campy Record and dump the Shitmano. And a carbon bar would add to it's beauty.

    Which type of cage are those, and how are they working out? They look sweet.

    Is it me or did Easton screw up the decals on your fork? They are upside down
