"The clear problem of the outlawing of insult is that too many things can be interpreted as such. Criticism, ridicule, sarcasm, merely stating an alternative point of view to the orthodoxy, can be interpreted as insult."

Hey everybody, I'm new around here. This is my Ghost 5100 cross, which I've had for about 3 weeks. It's my main mode of transport since I got it, and it's been pretty awesome so far.

As of today, both my road and hybrid are complete with their upgrades. Just in time for the end of the season.

DAYUM!!! Let us know how you like those aerospokes. What's their weight BTW?
Nice kiddie play mat there.

2011 Felt Z85 105 | Ultegra | KMC | Selle Italia | Vuelta | Topeak
90's-ish KHS Alite 1000 MTB, *hybridized*
Here you go. Yes that's our play area for the kids. I have my bike there cause, well there's no other place to put it.
The aerospokes are crazy heavy. One wheel weighs more then my zipp 303 wheelset. I bought them for aesthethics
You guys should be brave and run these flat bar road bikes in the Hot or Not thread in the 41.
Before you do you must follow some very strict rules (for the 41)
Drive side shots only
Chain on large chain wheel and smallest cog on the cassette
Valve Stems on the bottom
Cranks either in line with the bottom chain stay or in line with the seat tube (depending on which country you're from)
No water bottles
No saddle bags
No dork discs
Slammed stem with either a 5mm spcer at the top or nothing at all.
Here's my 2013 Trek 7.7 FX Carbon and my 2012 Honda Odyssey
Nice to see a SOMA on here. We get tons of Surlys but SOMA's seem to be much more rare. I look forward to getting home (and away from my employers internet filter) and taking a look at this bike. The Double Cross is on my short list of possible frames if I decide I need a new one.
Currently riding a 2013 Handsome Devil custom build and an 80's Takara Highlander (MTB built in the style of an 82-84 Stumpjumper).
