    well, it's not in the typical lowest gear on the cassette for the picture. That could be causing your eyes to lie to you.

    I think it is more that the disc brakes throw off the line of perception of the chain.

    I noticed that you have your saddle far forward, but you also have a post with setback. maybe consider a zero setback post like a Thomson

    i'm not positive, but i think the issue is that you need SOMETHING above the top of the steerer tube. if the stem clamp extends above the top edge of the steerer tube, then you're ok with just a top cap. if the steerer extends past the top of the stem, you need a spacer so the top cap presses on the spacer and not the actual steerer. that's my understanding. nice bike, btw.

    also, i really like that ritte.

    Like minds think alike. It's on the to do list, the Cannondale Competition seatpost came with the frame so it'll have to do for now.

    I had a rubber bar end cap that I put between the bike and the brick. I the pic with it leaning up against a painted steel pole though, it's totally leaning on it. No damage done, I clean up the bike daily so I'd see it

    Thanks for the comments guys

    One clue that he used a wider than "normal" lens is the amount of light fall-off around the edges. I would've guessed 28 @ 2.0- but that's because I don't own a 35....

    Ah, the 35L... the only lens I've ever regretted selling. I'll get another one... sometime... bike crap and camera crap, fighting over the slim pickin's of my wallet.

    oh and as you can see from the third pic I ditched the white tires it came with. Seriously, white tires? Not white sidewalls, rather white on the tread. They looked like this when I carefully brought it home from the bike shop without touching the tires on the ground: http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5058/...17975625_b.jpg
    sorry but i love Miatas . Nice Bianchi!

    These bikes are extremely well valued. Shimano 105 10spd, Carbon Frame/Fork for a very good price. Do you mind me asking what they were ASKING Retail for the bike (not what you paid).

    I was thinking the same think based on the prices for these Diamondbacks featured in the latest Performance advertisements. They look like quite a good bargain.

    Still a hell of a bike for under 1400. Besides that Depending on what they go with, Tektro makes better brakes than Shimano. (I'll take my R741's all day over the Shimano 105 brakeset) I personally think Shimano gives up plenty of room for weight reduction in the crankset. But I am not a Huge fan of the FSA cranksets either.

    yeah it looks like hardly any 105 actually. shifters, and a derailer, and chain. for that kind of chedder a much better aluminum bike could have been had.
