So I have been on a new ride for this year (since about March I think) & she has undergone many little changes here & there since I first put her together. She's been unchanged for the last 3 months & this is what I would call a "final build". Except that I just decided to switch out the AX Lightness Orions for something else. More projects require more funds unfortunately.
Anyways, this is Victoria. My ride for 2009. For the 1st time in about 5 years I think it's the first time I'll keep a frameset for more than a year. Since 2004 I have ridden a Merlin Extralight, Litespeed Vortex, Calfee Tetra Pro Custom, Ruegamer Custom, Look 565, Cervelo R3, Cervelo P3C. I sold the R3 & P3C to get this bike. It's absolutely positively the best bike I have ever ridden. If I do decide to get something else at some point I just have no idea what it would be. There is just nothing on the market that I feel would be an upgrade over this Cervelo SLC-SL for what I want in a bike.
Key points in the build:
Frameset: Cervelo SLC-SL w/ 3T Funda fork
Levers: SRAM Red
RD: Custom SRAM Red w/ Dark Albert oversized carbon cage & carbon pulleys
Brakes: AX Lightness Orion
Cranks: SRM Professional Campy Compact (165mm arms) w/ Phil Wood ti BB
Pedals: Time Ulteam Carbon-Ti
Bar/Stem: Ritchey WCS alloy
Wheels: Hed Jet 6 w/ Bontrager clincher tires
Cables: white Bontrager housing for shifters, white Nokons w/ Power Cordz for the brakes
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?
