I just sold my R3 and bought a Tarmac SL4 Pro with DA9000 for 3 peaks type riding. Couldnt be happier.

I wish I was the winner of that one. Or one of the other bike prizes for the events I will ride this year.

The bike in that pic doesn't appear to be an S-Works nor is it a Roubaix.

Hmmm I don't know what happened. For the last couple of days this bike has looked pink with a tint of purple. Click on the thread today and it's red. Can't explain it. :?

Why would I want to leave "God's own country"?

Great weather, except for the summers, not to many people were I live. And not to mention all the Victorians :lol:

If I was to move it would be to Tassie. Somewhere around Launceston I think. And then only for the Summer and autumn. :D

Easton Vic is pretty hard to beat, Launceston may come close. As for QLD :roll: drivers get merit points added to their liscence for running over cyclists up there!

Indeed. It's a nice looking bike and as far as a poor quality image, the valve stems line up with the tyre logo as well with each other. All seems to be in order 8)

Nice 8)

I think I'll try one of these when my Roubaix is due for an upgrade.

I replaced the pic taken with the phone in artificial lighting, with a pic taken with an SLR in natural light. The SLR pic is a more true representation of the colour, and it includes the obligatory garage door. :wink:

Thanks for noticing the valve stem and tyre logo alignment. Women often go to a lot of trouble with their hair and things like valve stem/tyre logo alignment and men don't even notice!

So I wasn't seeing things? it was a weird pink purple colour in the photo originally.

Isn't it normal practice to align the valve with the logo so the valve can be found at a glance? Is for me anyway.
