    And I don't think that you have lined up the logos on the tyre sidewalls with the valves either.

    Lining up the logo's with the valves?
    I thought the idea was to line up the logo on the tire with the logo on the rim?

    You line the logo of the tire up with the valve so if you get a flat you can find where it happened on the tire easier.

    Almost embarrassed to show the two I'm working with now after seeing all the sweet bikes everyone has.

    My current training bike is a 2003 Schwinn Prelude, Surprisingly gives a great training ride as well as my Univega Specialissimo I have in Arizona.
    My new project bike is a 2001 Kestrel 300 EMS Carbon frame I bought off Craigslist for a whopping $85.00, Need to repair top tube thanks to some bike mechanic who did not know where to clamp bike. Hope they meet your approval.

    if I wasn't racing, campy 11 would be the way to go... the wheel pits/ support vehicles usually have shimano/sram 10spd

    at least you picked the lesser of the two evils

    i really dont blame you at all. i really do not like shimano but do not have any experience with sram road groups. its a great build. if you gave it to me i wouldnt change a thing.

    edit: well, maybe the saddle. i would give it a shot though.

    Certainly not lateral- the matte black sl3 is one of the nicest frames anywhere!

    This is going to sound stupid... What is the difference between a 'regular' Specialized, and an S-Works?

    I just finished building up a F. Moser Leader AX with a Campy 10 speed Record group. Velocity aero head rims (white with blue nipples; front wheel laced radial, rear laced 3 cross), Nitto stem, white Nokon cable housing and a Ritchey wcs seatpost.
    This is my best bike yet.Attachment 170512 A 19.04lb STEEL frame bike.

    Until the matte SL3, I had never really considered owning a Specialized. The red/black swoosh paint doesn't really do anything for me. The matte is
    pure sex, and I've been drooling over my teammate's frame since he got it. The white w/ black logos frame is hot too, but the other visual schemes
    are a definite rung or two down the ladder if you ask me.

    It's a great bike with an even better color scheme.

    That sloping top tube is the only thing that puts me off about Specialized.

    when I mentioned standard or regular I meant non bb30 bottom bracket.. sorry for the confusion, but the s-works is simply their highest end model. The new matte black one I got is a module which comes bb30 and a specialized crank.
