Built it up 2-3 weeks ago. Still need to tweak a bit, and that stem has to come down, but here it is:

(2004 Chorus, btw)

I didn't know Chorus was switching to carbon levers for '04. I've always loved the stealth look of a black frame with black wheels, tires, and components. The white bar ribbon and saddle set things off nicely. Happy riding.

How long do you expect the seat and bar tape to stay white? =)
Beautiful build...Dave Hickey

Nice job! Nothing like a Top Level.

The black/white contrast is beautiful. I like the Chorus group. Best Campy bang for the buck. Being a snooty LBS mechanic, I'm usualy not impressed by most bikes, but this one is wonderful!

Be sure to give us some ride impressions after you've put on a few miles. Oh, leave that steerer tube uncut for a little while as a precaution when you lower the stem. Just swap a spacer one at a time to the top of the stem for a week to adjust position.

Ugh, don't show me this crap. Makes me want to buy another bike. Wife is making me kick one out of the stable as it is, but yah, this would look nice next to my LOOK, which has a similar scheme... but yah, I would put black tape on.. and a black saddle. Stealth BAY-BEEEEE. Nice ride.
