It is at a very good home, being used as a pursuit bike. I can always get it back.

I like it a lot - especially the color scheme. Maybe you remove the pink JET stickers?

RobbieTunes says:

I should. I've been looking for some HED decals just like the ones already there, to put in place of the JET decals.

This weekend, it goes to 9-sp Dura Ace, and a whopping big 11-21 cassette.

Looks fast. I expect it is with an 11-19 cassette :P

Fairly flat in these parts, and I rarely need the small ring. I'm as fast on this as any bike I have, and I think the position helps a lot. It was custom-built for a guy, apparently my size, because it fits very well.

Lucky you. Just out of interest, whereabouts are "these parts"?

Eastern NC, right on I-95. East and south = flatter and flatter, but constant wind. You pedal about 99% of the time. North and west = hills worth climbing. Almost all the triathlons around here are flat.
