    current ultegra and dura ace cranksets are a pretty piece of machining but as a bike part they are ugly. they do not visually blend into most frames.

    cannondale, lightning, red, rotor, and campagnolo cranksets all look better without sacrificing performance. besides, this thread is heartless and shallow, in these pages: appearance>performance

    Remove the spacers, yes, change the entire group, yes, will consider swap out for ?Sram Red, cut the steerer, no, I don't keep my bikes long, I will sell it, remove the wheel stickers, no, I think it is better to sell the wheel then buy another pair.
    I agreed with someone mentioned about too many logos, it is too much in your eyes thing.

    Surpised nobody picked up on this. Your saddle height should have nothing to do with your ability to touch the ground. If you can get both feet on the ground your saddle is definitely too low and you are inviting all kinds of knee problems and also riding in a very inefficient position.

    What? You are new and already have another bike with SR11 that is a Colnago and don't even klnow how to ride? At this point, you need to worry about more important stuff than how your bikes look.

    Agreed, I just want to have some fun, I enjoy putting bikes together and take them for a test ride, I am learning how to ride more effectively and professionally.

    It is not a chinarello, it is the real Pinarello Paris, I bought it used but in pristine condition for a good price.

    When I reach a sudden stop, I like to have my toe touch the ground for balance, also for get on and get off from the bike.

    Why for following the meaning of this thread, and answering the request of the guy who posted the pic? If you don't agree with me fine, but most everyone else on here have eyes that work, and will agree with me. So STFU please.

    I had white/white on my 09. Then white saddle, white tape, black hoods. Then black saddle, black tape, white hoods. Now I'm happy that all black looks good on this one because I never have to clean it. I had a picture of your bike saved on my phone as the inspiration for mine! What brakes are you using?

    Dayum! The recent temp closure here caused this thread to get even hotter.
