    Sweeet! What's the deal with that Crankset though? Is it Dura Ace? Just looks kind of odd.

    That 'cutout' on the seat tube seems like it is just for looks. To get any aero benefit, the tyre needs to be within about 5mm of a seat tube cut out, as in a Cervelo P3 or P2K. The wheel on this bike is considerably more than 5 mm from that cut out. The new Dura Ace 2004 crankset is fairly ugly... I think Campagnolo will be pleased.

    that foil shape seat tube will not provide a drag reduction for the wheel, but it will provide a drag reduction strictly for the tube as compared to a normal round cross section. It is correct to point out that this benefit is small in comparison to the fluid stream meeting the tire/wheel cross section, however, unless it is very close to the tire/wheel.

    well I would have to say that the ShimaNO 2004 10 speed
    is a bit on the ugly side. unlike the Campagnolo record carbon cranks
    but i recken because these cranks work with the drive crank attached to the bottom bracket. once the sealed bracket buggers up it would be a case of replace the full crank set.

    I have noticed that with shimaNO u can't fix or get new parts for things.
    Campagnolo u can rebuild from groud up. for bike shops this is good easy put new part on(in 5 secs) but for the DIY bike fixer with all the time in the world. the first thing to go is the ShimaNO shifters. and to start with 03 dura ace levers are $850 were better looking lighter Campagnolo record 10 speed are only $600. http://shops.bizarsoftware.com.au/sbr/catalogue/category2/category95 compare prices here So when i buid up my new bike i chose to use Campagnolo record.
