    You forgot the deduction for the squid attached to the bottom bracket! I say it's at roughly 100-105deg. Capable of being in the 125-130deg range with Super Record, or Red with a Lightning/AX/Zipp/or THM crankset, and KCNC, or EE brakes. Which would make it the hottest bike on all of BF.

    I just ordered 2 23mm Evo CXes. So that was a good move, eh?

    I saw an Ultegra crankset in all black today. It looks quite a bit better and less squidly in all black.

    Such a bike calls for something like a Clavicula crank. That would get a perfect 10/10 to me.

    I saw your pictures on the trainer, you are a big dude, athlete type with perfect body proportion for cycling, I can tell you will put some good usages into that crankset, $1200 is well worth it, I am sure it will make your already bad ass S2 even HOTTER.
