    Thanks man. The Pinarello is currently in my LBS being rebuilt after a Van cut me up yesterday. I'm still concussed! Thankfully the other guy's insurance is paying up, so I'm going to rebuild her well, and get a new helmet to replace the cracked one!

    Thanks Gman. It's good to hear that there's another big man on a bike. I almost boght a Jamis before getting the Pinarello, but the brand isn't weel known over here. I've since found out from a Canadian bike mechanic friend that it's a very good brand. I missed out on a great deal without knowing it!

    Ride safely.

    Many thanks. It was a close call. My first and only crash in 27 years of riding! Let's hope that's the end of it!

    Now comes the insurance stuff!

    How do you like the circus monkey brakes, if you have had a chance to ride them? I dig the looks and thinking of getting a pair...or two.

    They're excellent. For the price, they're one of the best values out there. They're also sold under other tradenames - Planet X, FeatherBrakes, and Token. I got 3 sets of 'em - for each of my road bikes.

    I think that chin rest isn't UCI legal:D...

    I hope you eventually cut down that fork steerer tube...otherwise, nice ride.

    It's been cut down since then. The $2600 SRAM RED bike doesn't include spacers. Can't complain.:D

    Thanks man, my bike is almost all red and black, but all Campy Record. I kinda hate to break up the group...but the red/black set really has me excited. IIRC you got them off of ebay from a tiawan seller, right? I see one with lots of feedback and one with only 17. Who did you buy from? Did you have to pay any duty/fees?

    Thanks again, Rich

    That's one pretty bike. That style of BMC frame is the best looking methinks, and red and black is the third best color combo out there (All black is #1 and all red is #2). The new frames with the more compact rear triangle just don't suit my aesthetic tastes.

    The Campy components finish the bike off nicely.
