My bike

I thought I'd post a few more photos of my bike. It feels great to ride - really quick and nimble.

I'm using flat handlebars. They take some getting used to, but they're set at just the right height (I've tilted them down a bit since taking this shot)...

Here's a close up of the Nitto bars and very short TNI stem.

Rear wheel has a 28-hole Campagnolo hub, three-cross spokes on the drive side, radial Hoshi spokes on the other, and 14 tooth Campagnolo cog

The headset is also Campagnolo - from the old Record pista groupset

Finally, here's my bike lurking on the streets outside a ramen shop at night...
