During my first round i stopped at a local bike store (Presto) to get the chris king tightend,..and all the employees came to see the bike,..and an english guy was called from his lunchbrake; "You have to come back right now! you won't believe what you see!", so he came running back and freaked out; "My god,..this is my wet dream!"
He told me what we all feel here at this forum,..." these parts,..i remember them from behind the glass, never saw them in real" ,...

and guys,..got to be honest,...in real it is soooooo pretty,..
