|you are a mental health professional. I can see my father's book on the shelf. (No sh!t) He wrote DSM-IV Made Easy. The last name of the author and my name should confirm my story.

|That bike has only one problem...||Bruno|
Feb 13, 2002 3:16 PM
|it is too clean. It shows that you haven't ridden it yet. I would change the stem spacers color to black. Otherwise its very nice.|

|Yes, I only rode it twice so far, but I just picked it up a few days ago and it gets dark early in the east nowadays. The spacer situation is that I had mulitple black spacers and my LBS cut me this 30mm in aluminum as it is better to have one solid piece. I just ordered a black 25mm carbon conical spacer to see if that works on my bike. I assure you it will get nice and dirty. That is why I ride ti, I don't need to really worry.

|An autographed framed poster of Lance||Lazywriter|
Feb 13, 2002 4:50 PM
|very perceptive. Seemed kinda juvenile just to have a poster in my place for a guy in his thirties. So in order to have my girlfriend accept a cycling poster, it had to be meaningful. Therefore the autographed "Courage" poster.
I dig it.
|it is||even funnier|

|You post under differnt names, don't you?|
Feb 13, 2002 8:44 PM
|based on your spelling, I'm assuming this is another one of your names, Lazywriter.|
Feb 13, 2002 9:05 PM
|Hey Mickey! That wasn't me and that doesn't seem like poor spelling as much as maybe a typo. Stop being so critical. No need to hide from you anyway.|
|How did you get that poster autographed? (nm)||CRM|

|It's hard to go wrong with silver and black (my mtb is done up the same way). Looks like you really did your shopping. The handlebar tape nicely rounds-out the image. The opinions of those few that choose to bash it won't change how good the bike is. I say it's badass.|

|Bravo, your bike is absolutely stunning! Care to share any cost figures with us? Frame in particular. Do I need a Swiss bank account?! :)|
|What's that? An Eames chair? Is that a real one?||jeebus|
Feb 13, 2002 6:44 PM
|If it is, it's worth as much as the bike. Where's the matching ottoman? I got one in black. A replica unfortunately.
Nice bike and nice chair!
|What's that? An Eames chair? Is that a real one?||Lazywriter|
Feb 13, 2002 6:56 PM
|Thanks and I wish I had a black one myself. As far as "real", it used to belong to my girlfriend's father who bought it off an architect that had it in a showroom. It is not a Hermann Miller version which is usually the standard, but other companies made "real" ones. The ottoman was pushed to the side to take the picture. Thanks
|And that table...||pgager|

|Looks like a stage set from "Frazier."
Dr. Crane would probably own a Seven though.
All kidding aside, nice bike. Have fun!
|I am getting just as many comments on||Lazywriter|
Feb 13, 2002 9:02 PM
|my place as I am on my bike. Should I be concerned that my place is a hovel???? Yes, the table is Ikea. A lot of my furniture is. Inexpensive but holding up well after 7 years. The chair is Eames and I have a real Alvar Allto dining room/chair set. Do you guys want to come over and see the rest of my place???
Just kidding and thanks for the comments. I must say that people do find how others live curious. Don't we all wonder what the other posters here homes look like?
Plus, those bookcases go up 8 feet and there are 2 more than you see in the picture. 1 bedroom apartment with over 2000 books and 4 bikes. What more do I need?

|Can't find anything to bash! A very sensible set-up: 32 spokes front and rear? Not so much seatpost showing, handlebars almost at seat level, generous stem length, indicating a rangy cockpit, comfortable riding. 53-39, 12-27? Darker finish, graphics, nicely integrated handlebar tape. The bike smokes, man! A true object of Lust!
World War III? Have you read Norman O. Brown's "Life Against Death, The Psychoanalytic Interpretation of History?"
Feb 14, 2002 2:44 AM
|I didn't even notice a bike in the picture. Anyways, your "History of Art" book has a ripped cover. And on a curious note, what kind of lightbulbs are you using? Softwhite glow 50/60 watters I'm guessing.
No, seriously, your bike is fabulous. Enjoy the ride.

As a side question, Where are you ordering this one-piece carbon spacer from? I need one myself, so any info you could offer would be most helpful.
Thanks in advance.
Feb 14, 2002 2:47 PM
|go to www.bikeusa.com and check out component section. It is the Winwood conical stack spacer. Their 1-580-510-9224 and ask for that spacer. It is back ordered but should be available in a week or so.

|I especially like that you put a Reynolds fork on there instead of one of those ugly, cr@ppy LS forks. |
People may make fun of LS bikes, but they are great, well made bikes. LS has tons of experience and stands behind their products. Yeah, I'm biased, I have one.
What I don't get is paying $4000 for a Seven Axiom frame which is made of straight guage ti tubing.

|You make me very jealous. I love Lightspeed MTB's, but never even dreamed of owning a roadie.
I'll keep riding my Trek until Lightspeed buys me one!!

|...that its not sitting in my house! You did a very nice job of building it up. I can't imagine anyone bashing it. Enjoy riding it and tell us what you think.|

|sort of home made candle. If you check closely, you can see 2 candles next to it. I wouldn't keep the candles on such a low shelf, but then, I have kids.|
