I eventually got my bike built. I love it. It is a Fondriest SAT U107 team Lampre TT frame. I have ITM aero bars on, the pedals are special fondriest edition looks and the seat (not pictured) is a fondriest selle basano seat. Anyway I get to ride it tonight.

Looks good. How are those bars working with the shifters? I sent mine back and got the Profile Carbon X bars. Let us know how it rides.

the bars are great, it will take a bit getting used to as they are very different from my old syntace bars and my road bars. The shifters work great, I dumped the dia compe brakes and put regular shimano brake levers on. This way it helps with climbing (not much in FL) and you can sit on the hoods, the hoods are a bit thinner than normal so it feels different. Nice thing is the internal routing of the cables, it looks very neat and very Euro (except no campy).
Where in Florida do you live? NMDERICK

That looks like some wicked saddle-to-bars drop. How's your back?
