I like that Campy chainstay protector. Good cover up! ;-)

That paint scheme looks especially cool with Campy Record carbon. Well done!
Sweet looking bike! Enjoy. nmJuanmoretime

I didn't think anyone could pull off Campy on a USPS frame. IIRC I think they put a Shimano decal on the chainstay.

Putting the Campy chainstay protector was a nice touch.
Nice ride! (Even for a Trek!-kidding!) Seriously; nice bike. nmlook271

Yup, nice ride for a Trek. Classy setup, no Japagnolo. nmSpunout

...where did you get that chainstay protector? Mine's looking a bit worn and I'd like to replace it with something a bit more stylish.

It's good to see a Trek with Campy for a change.

I think you're gonna like that bike. I built up an '03 5900 in September and really like it. I rode it in a hill climb and it was awewome.

A few weeks ago, I used it for a double century. I felt great at the end.

... a hill climb in sept, was it the Hearbreak century ? it seems that I'm doing the same centuries (doing the 100 miles only though), on almost the same bike (trek 5200 for me :) )
