Thanks! Can't do a white garage door, need contrast for the white frame.

Is that frame White? For some reason I thought it was more of a really light silver color. I see the bike in a whole different, not any less appealing way now.

It is mostly white, but the paint job is officially called "Silver Cloud." It has silver on the tube tops and fades subtly down to white. So it does look different from different angles and in different lights.

had one of these for two weeks - was going to take a picture of it after today's race, but it got snapped in half on the way to the race.
Ah well - it sure felt great for a few days.

probably going back to a metal bike - maybe custom alu or custom steel.

Carbon bikes are fine - just as long as someone doesn't back into a stopped car with one on the rear of their car...

I wouldn't blame it on carbon, blame it on the driver. Besides, what would you do with a bent Alu/steel frame anyway? Was the impact that slow/small?

Man that sucks though, I loved my Prestige when I had it before the crash in May.

That's a very stealthy looking bike.

You might want to rotate the bars down a bit. That looks really painful for your wrists.

Point the bar ends to the rear brake and I think you'll have better access to the levers in the drops.

Do you have any pictures of you on the bike?

I know it's comfort above all but depending on how new you are at this you might not have things set up all that right. Your saddle probably needs to be leveled and you need to rotate your bars as well. Mark things as they are now, then try them out as I suggested. Pick the one you like more.

If you use your hoods only and have them set up like that, then something isn't right. Your drops don't really look usable. Safely anyway.

Fwiw, I set my brake levers up so I can shift/brake on a dime when sprinting out of the saddle in the drops. Everything else falls into place if I do that. Looking at the positioning of your bars/levers as they are now, you have little to no access to the levers in the drops. That's not good!

his front wheel is at least an inch lower than his back wheel = a saddle that appears to be nose down.
