I got my 725 in gloss white a few days ago from coghouse and was really surprised that the box weighed what it did, never knew aluminum frames were so light. The frame i got looks great, and really didnt notice any flaws in the bike other than paint overspray near the BB but it wasnt a lot but enough to visually see it if you were up close, a few bubbles on the inside face of the rear wheel and a small scratch. honestly I made it sound much worse than it seems, unless you could hold the frame in your hand and be able to inspect it closely you'd think the frame was perfect.

Cant wait to build up my bike this summer.

Yeah he actually did, by a full 2 minutes over second place which was the beast in the jeans on the low pro with risers.

I could put all of my weight on those things and they didn't budge, rode around on them for a good 3 years. I haven't ridden them since I rebuilt the bike in July and threw a 31.8 stem on it.

Fureal? My neck is at least Mexican while my torso says Alaskan. The arms aren't as pronounced. But yes, shirtless guy

The go pro was for one of the dudes that didn't race, he's a film major and is always messing with footage.
Overall it was fun. First group ride of the year, solid bbq and beer after party.

And an actual picture of my current setup:
