    I really like the "naked" look with no decals. It kind of makes it look stealthy.

    I have those same cranks. Not in the compact version the WCS ones. They are pretty nice. Not the lightest set but stiff enough and a decent deal price wise.

    Some day, they'll actually come up with a cool logo and people won't mind having the name on their bikes.

    1. Not yet, first (short) ride will be tonight, longer one tomorrow morning
    2. frame was $700
    3. Not sure exactly, but around 16lbs (from standing on scale without bike, then with bike......not exactly a precision at its finest.)

    wow, interesting. Notice how your front derailleur cable housing gets sort of wrinkly between the brifter and the cable stop? Mine does that too and its been driving me nuts. I'm using avid flak jacket, similar braided construction.

    The wrinkles in mine are just from being coiled in a box, not from being used. The cables are brand new. I used the end part of the housing when i should have cut a piece from the middle (like the RD housing). Doesnt bother me though.

    It's customary to place you bike in front of a white garage door when taking pictures...Just kidding, love the QS2-S. As soon as MG sends my wheels I'll be posting pics of my QS2-S build.
