    yes sir!

    And as for the double, I think a dual crown fork will mess the geometry up a little bit...

    Was a joke....seeing as how I've never owned a road bike.

    I don't see myself running out of gearing at either end, so I'll just leave it at one big old skool ring. I'm not that serious.

    Maybe, maybe not. Get one of the old school suspension forks, like on the beach cruisers!

    thanks for making sure all of the pics were in your response :disgust1:

    Looks fancy. I just got my first real road rig about a month ago. Have only taken it for one real ride and ten or so sessions on the trainer. I'm jealous of yours, that's a hot looking piece. Enjoy it and stay safe and away from cars, trucks and sloppy drivers!

    A buddy of mine had a CAAD 5, and it was a solid bike. Get a double on there! Your knees will thank you. ;)

    haha, it really does in the pictures, it's an optical delusion, it's really not that tight.

    I agree, and it sucks having to stand the entire time on steep climbs
