Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Wow this bike looks stealthy. Crazy drop bars, they're so tight looking.

So what's odd with the ergo bar? Picture was taken after the assembly so the angle is still a few degrees off.

Absolutely no complaints. Although I must admit that I haven't tested any other carbon frames but compared to my previous aluminum frame it rides very smoothly. I know that some people are bored (and some even angry for some reason) with the "naked carbon" look but I still really, really like the understated sans-logo look.

Beautiful bike! I have a thing for those eBay carbon frames
One odd question though... how is your bike standing up in this picture? Seems as if it is quite a ways from the wall and with no visible stand.. (possible photoshop?) Sorry I have to know, curosity gets the best of me.

This bike definitely needs a seatpost with no setback. That saddle looks scary

Thanks. I used a tripod for that shot. I took two pictures, one with me holding the bike and one picture without. Then I just comped them in Photoshop.

Some generic carbon ergo bar. Similar to this.

I bet it is, must be flexy as hell in this position

But apart from that it's a very nice bike, especially with the green hoods and Speedplays. Ever considered custom green decals to replace the red ones on your wheels?

Edit: Nevermind, I see the lead spoke with all the writing on it now. Just always thought they were red.
