Thanks, I really miss it and i'm sad I had to sell. But being a senior in highschool, telling chicks you drive to school sounds a lot better then telling them you ride a bike. Might try and find another one.

Thanks! Was originally planning on getting a CAAD 10 but realized I'm a kid with a minimum wage part time job and that goal didn't seem too realistic and it would take forever to finish. So I decided since I love the ride of my Saeco(stiff, great handling for a frame it's age) so much that i'm gonna build it back up with a modern group.

I think this is a cooler build then the run of the mill Caad 10

Btw looks great so far. How do those bars feel? I'm thinking of trying them.

The top section is flat like the mash bullhorns, great if you have big hands or don't like regular round bars.
