+1, I love the look of early-mid 2000's bikes and this one is another fine example of how well they can hold up.

Just a quick thing worth noting re: the saddle - if you have to adjust any saddle beyond a few degrees away from horizontal it's probably the wrong shape. There's no harm in experimenting with bike-fit so long as you think carefully about what you're doing.
thank you!

I know I have alot of my pics of bike in the house but the weather here is insane! We got hit by a hurricane here yesterday witch caused alot of destruction. This year has been something else :( . The ergo bars I have on the bike now are rather uncomforatble for me so I decided to order a new ritchey evo curve bar and 0 offset seatpost. I know for a fact the main issue is being caused by my 45mm seatpost "newbie mistake". Here are a few better pics of the bike my waterbottles are on to block out the electrical :D .

Tried out this new bar tape company called Marque they offer suede tape I must say the quality is superb! extremely comfortable.

Everyday I love this bike more n' more, I'm so happy I got back into cycling. I was worried about catching flats on the corsa's since I've noticed alot of members on here have many compalints about these tires, so far 3 rides in 3 days no issues. I'm very eager to see how my conti's GP S2's are gonna feel.
