|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.|

|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"... nm||Matno|

|$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! nm||BowWow|
