You forgot the best, if not most poorly-focused, photo! Pack-feeding behavior in the wild...
Now I'm going to have to go and do a little photo shoot too. I think I'll wait until I cut my steerer tube down to avoid that critique. At least I replaced that awful stem and dropped the bars.
As for the weight comments... I weighed mine with pedals and EA90SLX wheels @ 14lb 3oz. My wheels are supposed to be 200g heavier than AlpineGoat's 303's. I have Red versus his Dura-ace, which makes up some of the difference... and speedplays. I bet he didn't have his carbon cages on at first weigh-in, but I still agree he was likely under 15. Once we recover from sixgaps we'll have to do some more computrainin and I'll get them both on the scale for some better data. I will say that all the ones I've seen on weightweenies etc in the 11-13lb range usually have a full complement of esoteric superlightweight pieces from companies like ax-lightness, tune, etc. I'll likely pick up little ancillary parts of that caliber (or calibre, as it often is), but I don't know I'll be making the jump to brake replacement, the $800 stem (actually 800 euros), a $900 crankarm, or any of those major mods. I also would like to stay on clinchers, which will keep me out of the ultralight realm.

if you look closely there is something going on by the pedals, I imagine he photoshop it but not 100% sure.

Beautiful bike. I'm from Johns Creek. Can't do SG this year as I just did Moo and spent a little too many spousal approval units on that trip. Enjoy! The weather is going to be unreal, and riding Hogpen on that bike is going to be a blast.

Seems like a ton of people on the forum in ATL. The Gtc club hold rides every saturday, generally up 316 toward Bethlehem. Typically 50-60 miles 18 + average and a very good group. maybe 6-16 riders. You guys should come on up and do some. Gtcbike.com for times and courses.

Ha -
No - the one with white tape (white spy, as I like to call it) belongs to the original poster.. he is a friend, lives close by, and generously helped me put mine (black spy) together a few weeks ago. So while "we" as in the neighborhood have 2, I don't.

Well, unless he wants to loan me his when it rains...

How do you hold the bike upright? With the R5ca its more a question of how do you keep it from floating away!

Quite a discount on this bike... Under $5,000 for the frame set. It's almost like losing money if you don't buy it!

So, how did the ride go with the new steed? Starting line photo, that my wife took... 2600 riders total (3 ride distance choices), with the majority doing the 104.6 mile century option. She started later and did the 58 mile option.

Yeah I think there have been a few options for a while. I know wheels mfg makes a kit. I got mine secondhand from a lbs - i forget the make and I think I saw a third make online. They arent too hard to find but the instructions are dicey. On mine i had the two main halves and two things that were kinda like bearing caps but maybe really spacers? With both, proper torque would bind the crank. I ended up only using the drive side (the chain line was good with it so i tried to keep it) and that worked perfectly.
