Thank you sir! I appreciate your kind words! The Tarmac's are very nice, but there's definitely something that makes my heart skip a beat when it comes to aero road frames! The girlfriend was wondering why I didn't take her out to dinner for the last 3 months, then she saw the bike and instantly knew I was cheating on her.
I lived in Shawnigan Lake for the better part of a year, and my best investment was a 30-year old Miyata road bike that could fit 40mm tires and fenders. Every single ride was soggy. Great mountain biking and running though!
CERVELO SLC TT - Side picture is not great as it seems like there is no drop but there is. Not the ideal set up but I was able to say in the aero position longer than I have in years and my back feels much better. Damn Arthritis.
Yes its steel. Soma B-Side with adjustable sliders should I want to go single. X-Fusion Enix fork. Chris King headset.

Revelate Designs bags for bikebacking not pictured.
It has bosses for 5 water bottles (2 inside the triangle, 1 under the downtube, and 2 on the fork legs) and with the Revelate seat, frame, jerry can and feed bags and set of Zipp clip-ons it looks like I might be able to hold at least enough gear, calories and fluids as the average bike in an IM transition area.
2008 P3 which I recently rebuilt. My original fork rusted out, so I had to replace it. Components are new; 2013 Campagnolo 11 speed. R2C shifters are *incredible* on this bike. Will probably get smaller risers as I continue to dial-in the position. Fork will be cut smaller when position is finalized.
Here it is today:
Here it was prior to the rebuild (notice the spacers!)
