|and this is what I ended up with! I had hoped to put off my new bike purchade until next spring...but I locked eyes on this one and it was lust....
Fully Camy Carbon Record 10
Easton EC90 Bars
The deal was that I had to buy the bike as is, i.e. the wheels. (got it a a good price: about 20% off)
The wheels would not have been my choice but they give the bike a nice look. Anyone know anything about them. I have done some research and been a able to lean a bit about them.
BTW: 17.75lbs with water bottles and peddles...
Guess what I am doing this weekend!? Yup, that is right going out and finding the perfect beach cruiser for my wide that she never got last weekend......

|I love my CT1. Not wild about the Easton bars, which I'm going to take off of mine, but to each his own. I went for plain jane Mavic Ks, but what the heck.|

|Are the wheels Alps that are missing the Alps decals?
You could always sell the wheels on ebay. The alps are a bit heavy for carbon wheels- and they are clinchers from the looks of them? They are durable enough for everyday riding, but do you really want to use them daily ? (seems a bit poseurish to show up at a club ride on them...).
Tri guys love them- so you might be able to get a nice chunk of change on ebay ($600-700 if new).

|Let's get this straight:
You didn't buy your wife a present, yet you still got HED ?
You, my friend, are my hero

|Is that the new steel CT1?||mickey-mac|

|After seeing you on the Lemond and discussing the merits of steel with you, I didn't expect to see this. Another traitor. ;-) Seriously, though, that's a nice bike. Where'd you pick it up?|

|I thought about getting a new steel. But, obvioulsy went ti. I will be tearing down my lemond. Sending it off for a complete refurb/repaint and building it up again. I love steel. I guess I just lusted after the CT1.
The ride is really nice. I have the fit almost dialed in...
