I haven't posted here in quite a while, but this thread got me excited enough to post. The picture is a little bit old as I broke my front rim (it was a left over rim I threw on) and it has been replaced by a 48 hole chukkar. Oh and btw the way I didnt break it going off some cool ramp or jumping stairs, it got backed into by my neighbors car while it was locked up outside while I ran inside to grab some water....

iminusd is blowing out the 2010 725 for 128 less than the 2011, so some places it is that big of a difference for nicer looking welds and paint.

Just curious, why can I not find a 61cm 725 frame when it's listed in scrod's geo chart?

I don't think they make a 61cm in the new 725. Kinda sucks for us tall folks

Though it did make me feel better about getting the 721

Thanks! Just need to finish up my back wheel, dial in my stem height (and install my clips/straps). Kinda pissed that the ThickSlicks I ordered won't be in my hands until early June but oh well.

I'm really, really stoked about this bike.

Trying to decide on new bars for my 721.

I figured. My 725 looks like it eats people and I wouldn't classify it as "hipster" by any stretch.
