Hi Scott,
I thought I'd let you know that I'm greatly enjoying the new frame. The fit and ride are completely different; the bike feels more like an extension of myself, and I want to get out on it every chance I get. I've put somewhere in the neighborhood of 700 miles on it since late January. Thanks for your guidance throughout the whole process!

All that remains of my old bike is the wheel set--which I'm now saving up to replace. I have been thinking of the Stan's you mention below, but do wonder about "aero" qualities--this seems to be something that people argue about a lot. Some say it trumps weight in nearly every instance, but I just find that hard to believe. Is it worth looking into bladed spokes to go with the Alpha 340, or do you think the effect negligible?

Hope you're doing well--
