Any interest in seeing my stealth black aluminium build progressing..?

Some nice hardwear pending...

Finally getting excited about riding again after spending a week unconscious a year ago after a van trying to fuse itself to me in Portugal at 60kph (according to Garmin)

This will be a 'life is too short' build for me...

Plus, at 40 years old now, I think my window to become a pro has passed ;-)

glad to hear [i must check to see how schumacher is doing]
im interested in trying out a cannondale 2.8 one day and im pleased they are now within my grasp
finally after 20 years.ive given up reading cycling plus magazine now i always trusted their reviews but 'bike radars' seem to be the same.my mate is going to get the sensa romagna [ally]. so we will hopefully swap for a bit and this will continue through out our lives with other bikes.
best wishes.kevin

This frame is incredibly well finished.

With my planned build it'll be lighter than either of the BMC SLR or Specialized S-Works I've had.

I'd appreciate views on wheels (11 speed compatible)

Just to be different, I quite like the Rolf Echelon's for the semi-high profile rim.

I've also had a pair of Fulcrum 1's and am finding it hard to look past the 'dark' Fulcrum Zero's - full black wheels, ceramic hubs, but I'd allow white decals...

Mavic R-SYS SLR would be da bomb but mega money.

But hell, if we're talking mega money, the ENVE 3.4 would hit me properly (and all black!)

Wow momma!

But then that would be obvious ;-)

Plus I have a Rotor 3D+ in the shed unused, and I am a huge fan. The 3D I've been using for years is bombproof and that's saying a lot for a lad from Northern Ireland
