    No, seriously, that is one mean looking bike.

    It's the offspring's new steed. Once it's completed it should be a lovely thing.

    Frame set courtesy of Cervelo sponsorship with Bank of Mum & Dad for most of the the rest. He already had the Zipps (he's got a set of 404s and a rear disk) and the Pro Missile bars with VisionTech brake levers. The saddle is a temporary jobbie until his new one arrives. Also getting him some bog-standard wheels to use as training wheels, to keep the Zipps for competition use. University have given him a sports' bursary, so some of the funding has gone towards bits & bobs too.

    Father & Son have been doing a spot of male bonding, fettling together in the garage building it up.

    Good grief!!! That is a fantastic looking bike. I take it that will not be used for commuting? ;)

    I wouldn't sell it either, you will probably have to pay stamp duty on that one!
