    Did a little tweaking on one I picked up a short time ago, and just finished a 1995 for a friend.

    Is that little speck on the rear spoke a magnet for your garmin? If so, what kind is it? I hate the giant round ones.

    Yep. I'd never seen one before, but the LBS pulled one out as I was leaving yesterday and stuck it on. I think it's this one here, but there's no Shimano markings on mine.

    If you are looking for a minimalist look, these are pretty cool. I use 'em. They were a little teeny bit tricky to install -I used JB Weld. But they work fine and look great.

    2013 Madone 2.3 upgraded with a Bontrager RXL handlebar, Bontrager RXL Aerobars, Ultegra 6800 crankset, Ultegra 6800 chain, Ultegra 6800 pedals, Ultegra 6700 cassette and Bontrager R2 tires. Put 3000 miles this past year and loved every minute and dollar spent.

    Ooh, very interesting. I wonder how big of a pain it would be to remove them? i guess if need be, you could always just replace the spoke.

    Breezer Venturi-SRAM Force/Red mix, Bontrager Race Lite TLR

    It's been a while since I last posted. Got BG fitted and upgraded a few bits.
    2012 Breezer Venturi ("D'Fusion" hydroformed steel) frame
    2013 SRAM Force crank, RD and shifters
    2013 SRAM Red Yaw FD
    Bontrager Race Lite TLR wheels and R3 TLR tires, set up tubeless
    KMC X10SL gold chain
    Yokozuna Reaction cable set

    I'm thinking about installing the trick Switch Aero seatpost and a set of clip-on aero bars, as well as possibly upgrading the crank for DA-9000 with Stages power meter arm, but need to save up for it.

    Pic:
    Attachment 358617

    Please don't mind the ghetto rear wheel in the pic: I shot this with the indoor trainer wheel & tire mounted.

    After some issues with a couple of different LBS trying to tune the FD, I decided to just spend a couple of hours myself and learned how to get the Red Yaw FD to work flawlessly on my bike. Shifts with authority now, way better than the Force FD!

    Looks like its a bit big for you.
    What size is this bike?
    It appears to be a small bike.

    I like what you're doing with it, but size/fit is everything.

    I like what you're doing with it, but size/fit is everything.

    I did raise the saddle 1/2", but it's doesn't make a whole lot of an aesthetic difference. That's the problem with being so freakishly short, all bikes are big for me. My Scott Addict is the smallest they have, 47cm. I have seen a professional fitter before and he suggested that I get a custom bike. That would be nice, but I'll have to continue saving my lunch money!

    That's what I was afraid of.
    I wasn't really commenting on the aesthetics of your bike. It looks great to me to be honest.
    Fit it important to be able to recruit the muscle needed @ certain times. You might not be able to get into much of an aero position but thats not a big deal if your not racing.

    47cm is small, but if you look harder you can find smaller.
    I've seen 44cms around.(probably too small)
    Have you considered WSD's, or Junior frames?
