This is what 4+ Grand gets you at dealer cost!:eek: The frame was the reason for the high price even at cost.

Custom Sycip Reynolds 853 steel frame with Ouzo Pro fork and new seat stay (carbon)
Full Durace Groupo (inc. pedals)
King headset
Ksyrium Wheels
ITM Millinum Super over bars and stem
Thompson Setpost
Fizik Aliante Sadle
Hutchinson Carbon Comp Tires

Yes all my gear matches (clothes, shoes...etc). Everything is blue and black. I would have prefered a black saddle...but I am use to it now. The cool thing I like is...I got the Ouzo pro fork with out the green and yellow stickers. The Ouzo pro rear is bad ass also.

Smoooottthhhh like butta is all I can say. I tried some C-dales, specialized, guru and some others. I really wanted a fun bike to ride and not worry about getting beat up. The cdale was nice and fast as hell...but I found it too harsh. I just decided to get what I wanted...I was hesitant with steel at first, but Jay and Jeremy re-assured me that I would be fine for my needs (climbing and long rides). The best part is when I ride in a group and ride over stuff everyone else goes around ;)
nice bike... what camera did you use? nice macro.nmcolker

The Sycip brothers does beautiful work. You got yourself a work of art. I bet the ride is telepathic.
