Very nice color on the shoes, where did you buy them?
I haven´t seen this color before !?!
again, stunning shoes!
They are 'Team Limited Red'
Bought them from my LBS, got a very good deal on them because they are the 2009 model, soon to be replaced by the double BOA closure 2010 model.

I ordered a 58cm Neo Exile Ultimate today...
But will have to wait 6 weeks to make a report to you all. The wait is killing me! haha

got me some cult bearings for my record UT crank
must be the biggest price ever to loose 4 grams
they were not worn out or anything but just because
i dont like that they can die easy after a few rainy rides and make creaking sounds after they are shot
got me some revolution spokes to replace the stock ones of my rear wheel
saved about 58 grams there so that was a nice surprise

a light bike does make you go faster unless you are slow

A Phil Wood spoke cutter/threader. 32 cut and threaded in 2 minutes. Never have the wrong size ACI/Wheelsmith/Berg spokes now.
Some Sapim and DT spokes are a bit trickier as the butts are short but there is still about 3 or 4mm available in each.

its replacing a FSA OS-99 (which was 103g) so that's my only reference.
its not noticably flexy to me but then again i'm not Thor Hushovd.
am i going to break it? no
does it produce bad handling? no
does it feel unsafe? no
is it light? yes
does it elevate my weight-weenism? yes
