Only recently got a digital camera and first attempt at posting pics, so bear with me if it doesn't work...

Bike is an 03 Litespeed Sirius. I actually ordered an 02 Antares last July, but when it arrived at the shop the frame was dented and if turned out to be the last one in the UK! So I ended up with one of the first 03 Sirius frames built up with 02 Antares kit, namely Campag Centaur g/set with Proton wheels. Superb kit.

The alu range are seen by some to be poor man's Litespeeds but I love this bike. Because I got it in September only did about 300 miles before Winter set in, hence "new(ish)" ride. Recently added about 300 more and love the bike more each time. Only upgrades I have made are a USE carbon post, SLR saddle, and Look PP396 pedals. It weighs in at about 17.5 lbs and climbs and sprints like a dream.

The colour scheme does look a bit dodgy in photos, but is great in the flesh (once you have your shades on!!). The shop suggested the yellow Pro Race tyres, and though I was dubious at first I now think they suit the bike well.

Nice ride. What tape is on the bars?

It's Litespeed-branded tape, in line with the current fashion to have the brand on the bars! I think it looks good; keep meaning to order some rolls to keep as spare in case I ever change the bars, scuff that tape in a crash, etc.
Litespeed tape is made by OffTheFront nmJS Haiku Shop
