    Go for the kysrium SLs - far better. I have a mint set (2008) which are yours for £200 (these retail for £700+. Obviously very light weight and excellent bearing, flat spokes, etc. etc. great wheels. Let me know.:eek:

    What year is she? I have an '87 Elance 400. Same color blue. Even a brown leather saddle too. Bizarre!

    As seen elsewhere recently in the forum, my 2007 Look 565. Have been dying to have it painted since a week after I got it... nude carbon is so boring, never liked it. First time I saw a Vitus Carbone thought it was worse than their anodized aluminum aesthetic... sorry Vitus lovers! Still back in the 80s I always wanted one!!!

    Gotta love titanium.
    More real than steel. Stiffer and lighter but the ride is just as smooth.
    Zipp 303's are faster and more aero with carbon that absorbs road shock, and the dimples have improved my slice.
    The carbon stem dampens front end vibration without adding weight and the compact Ultegra with DuraAce outperforms Campy and SRAM.
    The space age plastic aero water bottle cages reduce drag and weight.
    I climb better and am faster on the flats than most in my group.
    And since Greg got layed off it has become a collector's item.

    What is a slice?

    I've had steel, aluminum, Ti, and CF. They all seem(ed) real to me. I could touch them. They seemed to follow the physical laws of our universe.

    Have you used SRAM and Campy?

    What is space age plastic? Is that a plastic developed since Sputnik was launched, or is it just a plastic that's been used in the time since Sputnik was launched?

    Do you climb better and faster because of the space age plastic, or is it somehow easier to increase potential energy with Ti?

    A slice is what I do on the golf course. All my other comments are a poor attempt at humor as I tried to poke fun at some cyclists here.
    So...what about the bike?

    That's a hot little scooter. It'd be tough to give that up.

    Do you sell these?
    And if so do you get your investment back, or is this for fun.
    The ones I've built never seem to leave my garage, except to be ridden by me.

    I still have the two Masi's I built, which I race regularly, but all the others, (7 of them) I sold locally. They are all being raced!
    I certainly got my investment back. In fact, the Masi's were paid for with the profit.
