Me too... I have a friend who plans on selling his - the design is totally different although still blue - its actually dark Indigo that fades back to pearl white in a sort of flame style design. It might be your size!

By the way same friend has 2 Landsharks, 4 Kish's (custom Ti), 1 Moots, 1 Ventana, and gosh knows what since I think he's now afraid to tell me...

Love all of the blue. I've got a special affinity to blue bikes. Here are some shots of my blues:
- Bob Jackson World Tour (Carolina blue by choice)
- Salsa Casseroll (slate blue)
- De Bernardi (blue-green but looks very blue in bright light)
- Merckx AX (ti gray with blue decals and bits)
- Gios Compact Pro (no longer owned but the bluest of them all)

BTW, if you are really really into blue bikes, Flickr has a Blue Bikes group with over 2,400 shots -- some of them incredible.

I bought a Blue Bike today (5-11-12). It only has 35 minutes riding time on it. The first thing I am going to do with this bike is replace those crappie pedals.
