    Very nice. There is something about celeste.

    What size frame did you end up with?

    57cm - my roubaix is a 58 but the 57 felt good. I think the 59 would have been too big as I've had to go for a shorter stem as it is. I've also got a shorter stem on the way for the Roubaix as I think it will help comfort on longer rides - worth a punt anyway!

    I heard yesterday that they should finish building my bike today, I will hopefully get an update tomorrow by email :becool: I've asked for pics :laugh:

    I've just spent the afternoon ripping all the old shelving off the wall in the garage to make space for it :okay:

    :wahhey:

    The first photo of the complete bike has come through, she'll be delivered this coming Thursday :hyper:


    It looks every bit as lovely as I'd hoped it would, now just need the weather to warm up and the roads to dry up a bit so I can take her out for the first ride :becool::becool::becool:

    Thanks, it's stunning isn't it. That remains the only photo I have of her to date but as far as I can tell delivery is still planned for Thursday so I don't have long to wait to see her in the flesh..!

    I'm getting impatient now - I've waited 4 months so far but these last few days are torture :laugh:

    Wow and the wall behind looks the part. Certainly sets the bike off.

    It's here :wahhey:

    The box didnt fare very well in the hands of the courier but fortunately it was well enough packed to survive the journey ^_^ I've got a bit of tinkering to do - front disc is dragging, must have been set up with the wheel slightly off-centre. Hope to get that done this evening then take it out for a spin tomorrow afternoon when I'm done at work :becool: Exciting times!

    That's a seriously great looking bike, @JhnBssll. Have you solved your tool storage problem yet?

    Not sure I have seen a saddlebag that would look right hanging off the back. I wondered about a framebag, but would that rub? Failing all else, you'll just have to employ someone to follow behind, carrying suitable tools :okay:
