you reckon they would have thrown the bar tape in????
sounds like a nice bike. had a very good chat to the EMC guys at Around the Bay last October. beautiful bikes!
Merida 903 from the LBS-nothing fancy... but you haven't seen me ride (nothing fancy)
Warranty would be annoying, I'm hoping to not have to use it From what I hear the carbones are a very rugged wheelset anyway so I don't see there being too many problems.

I will probably scare myself but as good as anyplace to keep a log of my expenses..
I bought an alloy frame with a carbon fork, carbon seatstays and headset a few months ago as NOS off ebay for $200 with the intention of building up another bike. Also got some Fulcrum 7's off this forum for $100. So I'm $300 in the hole before new year so I won't count them but so far this year I've got the following for the new bike:
Wiggle: 2 x Vittoria Diamante Pro tyres, 2 x tubes and Cinelli Bar tape: $98.30
CRC: FSA SL/K Seatpost, FSA Omega bars and pro-lite seatclamp: $95.25
Ribble: Campy Veloce groupset: $460.00 approx (haven't been billed for it yet even though it's been shipped)
LBS: Chain lube $8.95 (needed that for old bike anyway).
Total so far: $662.50
As I already have a spare saddle,pedals,stem and the Fulcrums came with a campy hub ($80 odd saved), I think I have everything I need when the grouppo arrives. $962.50 all up for a bike that should weigh in and perform at least as well as a shop bike that would cost at least $1200. Plus I'll have the fun of building it.
Ahh, forget a few things!!
