    IT's Hammer Time! (New Bike Porn)

    Here is my El Martillo, finally built up.

    Stats:

    55 cm Electric Blue El Martillo Road Frame (Pic #1)
    Reynolds Carbon Fork/Carbon Steerer (Pic #2)
    Full 105 components Except for.....(Pic #3)
    Ultegra (9sd) Triple Crank (Pic #4)

    Also ignore those pedals, they were just on for the ride right after I got done.
    I just picked up some Egg Beaters Pic #5

    Shake down cruise this Saturday, can't wait!

    beautiful

    That blue has me mesmerized. I saw a blue X-5 in person for the first time and it is really unbelievable. It put my superdust salty to shame.

    I don't know how they get the super smooth texture on it, almost like a brushed titanium except in blue.

    I was dead set on an orange bike next time, but the blue continues to tease me.

    Nice work.

    I have an original blue Marble Peak with the "Scratch" finish that I thought was sweet looking until I brought El Martillo home. The most $$$ part is my wife's reaction, "Ooh, that's really pretty!" I forsee an electric blue Saltamontes in our stable's future.

    And thanks.
