No, just kidding. I feel as thogh I committed a sin too by puting the SPD-SL's on my two Campy bikes. They are a light,low stack and large platform pedal...What more could we ask for. Just stay clipped in at all times around Campy aficionados, that means practicing your track stands.
That is hilarious...gala7516

I thought about that $129 Nashbar "Frame" too, though not exactly with the components you've built with....

I built one up for a friend.
He did not want the stickers.
I put them on my litespeed.
They are still on it now.

BTW the real framay bikes are junk.
You get what you pay for.
Come on guys! It's pronounced "Framay"... nmMatno

$129, baby. 7005 welded together by a drunken Taiwanese. I added a closeout Kestrel CF fork and swapped over the Ultegra from my broken GT (no stickers). It will do until I figure out what I want, and how to hide the purchase from the Mrs.

It weights 22 lbs, and I'd call the ride competent over the past ~3,000 mi w/lots of climbing, a few centuries, even a double. It's not the bike.

But seriously folks, I bought one of these frames for $117, built it up with sharp looking black 105 and an Easton EC 30 fork ($90, also Nashbar), for a total cost of $600 (I already had wheels and pedals), and I couldn't be happier, especially since the slack seat tube geometry and other dimensions are exactly what I wanted, same as the Merckxes I'd been drooling over for two years. Eat your hearts out.
Good job! Now go and drop the poseurs on the 'nags! nmBowWow
