hit by a car, got a new ride...amishbiker

Hi everyone, this is my first post so bear with me... I think most members here would be interested in this story: I was hit by a car 3 1/2 weeks ago and my 2001 Marin Trevisio was pretty much totaled, except for some components. After making sure I was ok and getting back to my apart I called the ins people (it was his fault), told them what happened and took my bike to the LBS. Called the insurance company a couple more times in the next week and they cut me a check 2 weeks after the accident. I checked around and found this Olmo (pics included) frame and had the guy build it up for me. Its a steel frame, slightly different material and a little lighter, with full dura-ace, custom built wheels with ck hubs. Its a thing of beauty and look forward to taking it out. Tomorrow maybe!

Looks like a nice ride. Just like a true cyclist, there was no mention of your injuries!! way to go on the new bike.

time to upgrade you headset :) I was also getting ready to compliment whoever wrapped your bars, but then I noticed that he/she ended the electrical tape right in front (badge view)....critical mistake....heads should roll for that one :)

nice bike - have fun

You've got a 1280X960 picture there. You need to shrink it down to 600 wide, next time.

If you're using IE, it can automatically scale picture size if are more concerned with width than details.
