I don't usually bother to clean the hoods as they get dirty super easily. Saddle is a Tune Speedneedle alcantara (82g when I weighed it). Weight as you see it is just under 14lbs. Weight with Zipp 606 firecrest tubulars is about 13.5 lbs. Rode it in the rain today, just wanted to snap a pic after cleaning it up (a bit).

You mentioned you are saving cash for a set of wheels. There are better ways of doing that than subjecting yourself to Keystone Light.

Also, I love it that your winter hoops are Easton EA90's.

Great bike.

Key Light and some candles. Very romantic.

Sounds like a romantic nights of putting the "sensual" back into "nonconsensual"

Get rid of the bag and waterbottle. Level the bars.

Black tape.

Then you have a very hot bike.

I like that Spooky.

But this is a case of premature photo ejaculation.

max power 12-13-11 10:08 PM

^ that is clearly a flat screen tv . . . . .

and hotter than the bike

Bighec 12-13-11 10:11 PM

Egg beaters are temp, speedplay zeros on order. Uncut steerer is till I get fitted, wheel set... It is what it is... Flat screen tv is indeed a flat screen projector sir..

Finally a photo of this bike. Light. Stiff. Fast. Love it.
