shimano 105, octalink bb. came with the bike, not my first pick - chainline is slightly off with the ring on the outside.

bought myself this for my 30th b-day. got it complete off of ebay, swapped out the pedals, bars.

12/07/07: crappy end to a crazy week. defended my phd earlier this week only to nearly get run over by a negligent motorist tonight.

car slowed down at the sign, but instead of stopping, accelerated at the last moment. managed to turn so that my shoulder and bag took the brunt of it. hand's a little bruised up and my shoulder's a little sore. macbook got the worst of it. it's fucked. luckily, i handed in my thesis earlier today. could have been a lot worse in so many regards. glad my neurosurgeon buddy goaded me into wearing a helmet a couple of months ago.

think i will be putting a light on after all..

Very Nice!

I had mine built up in stealth mode at one point, well done.

hey you know the pake logos

hey you know the pake logos on the downtube are designed to come off easily - you can just peel them off if you didn't want electrical tape.

yeah, i knew - i wasn't sure

yeah, i knew - i wasn't sure if i wanted it all black when i taped it up. turned out that was where it tends to contact the bike rack/my chain so i kept it on.
