    I disagree, that's one of my favorite Ferrari models from the past, and I love the new Pinarello frames. Win win for me.

    Maybe I'll try to stop selling mine. Got mine with 1st gen Rival (the silver one). I have the red/black painjob, looks gorgeous. With SRAM Force or Red..../drool.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention, the giant "C" headtube badge faces left instead of right...It's cool.

    Thanks.

    I agree they'd look a little funny on a CF frame, but when mated to a Ti frame the K10s really pop visually. If you look closely, Lynskey's seatpost collar is also black with a silver milled-out portion as well. Functional, and brings the whole thing together really nicely.

    Does it count if it is still in pieces? haha. Should be fully built by next Friday!

    Frame: 6 Series Madone
    Color: Dark sparkle grey clear over raw carbon
    Stem: xxx lite
    Handlebar: xxx lite
    Other: Madone seat cap, Cane Creek bearings all around

    Parts on the way
    Components: I'm guessing i'll throw on Sram Force. Maybe get something a tad cheaper. I cant make up my mind yet. Maybe even Shimano..who knows...
    Wheels: Bontrager Race Xtra Lite (RXL)



    Will update in the next week as parts (including custom graphics) start to be applied.

    I'm really digging that frame. Usually I dislike the decals, but, well, clearly that isn't a issue here ;D

    That saddle looks painful. Whatever is going on there, it probably isn't right.

    Thank you! I'm not a huge fan of crazy decals either. This bike is going to get two Trek decals then i'll call it a day. Nothing too big or boring. Subtle decals is the look im going for. Subtly is actually going to be the look of the bike. It will most likely be 'storm trooper'd out'. I also know everyone has white on black bikes but it just so happens the parts im buying only come in black...or white...haha.

    Running saddles like this can be dangerous, they can throw you off your bike easier compared to flat saddle, as they offer lesser leverage, especially during hard braking. Rule of thumb with bike fitters, saddle must be flat, some offset is okay, but your offset seems alot.
