    The Cervelo looks real good...but something about the Enve decals look a bit off. :/

    I picked up a new set of Rotor 3D's also...off a Cervelo.

    Looking good there!
    I am contemplating those wheels myself but never liked the yellow stickers on them ... my bike is completely raw carbon black and now that I've seen these wheels in their naked version I feel I totally need them ... waiting for the right second hand deal to come along

    I do have a set of Fizik bar tape in gloss red that I may throw on next.

    Thanks. I have to admit though, I only get to put on about 150 miles a week, 200 if I'm lucky to squeeze in an extra day of riding. But after every ride, I spend a good 20-30 mins cleaning it up. I'm just as meticulous with this bike as I am with our car/suvs.

    My group and I also said the same thing about the ENVE decals. I removed the wing-liked part of the decals that came with it. But I may try a new set cut out in a gloss black finish, just like new ENVE 6.7 wheelset decals.

    And great looking crankset
    I'm going to try the Q-rings next; I recently installed a set on my brother's carbon soloist and so far, no complaints.

    My wheels have the gloss back on carbon (Reynolds). It looks hawt. Do it do it.

    Same here. I think the anodized pieces and the matte black frameset and EDGE fork stands out from the everyday, typical, road bike. Nicely done.

    Brown saddle on an all-black bike? Ew. That's like wearing a brown shoes with a black belt.

    after further review, the other pictures of EPQ framesets do not have the spade on the frame. Nor do they say "B STAY" on the seatstay. The chain and seat stays do not look right, and I can say without a doubt that bike is a conterfeit frame, with a cheap ass homebuild.

    That's cause it's an EPS, not EPQ.

    Not denying that it's fake, but the decals are all correct (it's an EPS):
