    Crap

    ....so rowing is going well, and the off season has been treating me pretty well, but I still am not the least bit motivated to ride my bike next year.

    Then I found this thing on eBay...



    I still have very little (if any) motivation to race, but I can't wait to *ride* this thing.

    I'm just hoping motivation to race (at least on the weekends I'm not doing Regattas) comes back now. I think I'll just stick to College races this Spring, but hey, it's something.

    So...the real question here is..... I'm keeping the bike mostly as-is, but I'm going to put my bars, stem, and saddle on it. But..

    What color bar tape, tires (on Black Ksyrium Elites, at least for training), cabling, and saddle does it get? I'm kinda thinking white tape, black tires w/ white stripes (Vittoria), white cables, a white saddle, and white cages.

    Meh. I can't wait for this thing to get here! I am going to miss Mr. Felt, though...

    What crankset is that? It looks like Campy but seeing as how you have Force I'm guessing it's FSA?

    What belt will you wear with it? It's a bike, not a Christmas tree. Don't decorate it; ride it.

    You really can't do white hoods with white bar tape. Even if they happen to be the exact same shade of white, they don't stay that way.

    I'd do gold bar tape with white hoods on that bike.

    What's the point in riding when you don't have the PRO-look?

    Nice bike. If it makes you ride more, there can't be anything wrong with that.

    I feel like a soiled kleenex dropped in the gutter in the red-light district of Paris.
