That's cool, but I work at a shop, but none of our manufacturers do a simple aluminum frame. I'd like to cover up the logo.
Mega Erotic Bike Control on the downtube would be pretty sweet.

You must have some really strange build for that fit.

Or perhaps you're a woman?

^^^

For a rider with very long legs and a oddly short torso with a long reach on a frame that is too small for either.

Sweet rigs.

I'm usually not fond of Fujis but those bikes are very sharp.

What do you think of the 58s? I have 19s and love them but I was thinking of 58s as an upgrade? I know they're a bit portly but how are they once they get going?

The 58s are nice. They are definitely heavy (plus I have the PT model). You notice it somewhat when accelerating from a dead stop, but once you get up around 25mph they are nice and fast. For the price, they can't be beat.

I don't know if I'd consider them an "upgrade" from the 19s. Depends what you use them for I guess. Hilly RRs = 19s. Flat RRs and crits = 58s.

Nothing too special, 95% of the parts were hand me down from my Cervelo. I only had to buy the cranks and stem. A Record crank would have looked much much better but i got the sram rivals for $100 new so ill deal with them for a bit.
edit: i didnt notice how bad the bars were angled. Must fix.
