    Campy or no campy this is Hot and bonus points for a sharp picture. I smell a dslr here.

    Dig the colors on the pro-lite, might debadge the wheels to clean it up a bit and add an all black saddle.

    Bar tape on that Pro-Lite is an abomination.

    agreed, white bar tape is a must.

    Fitzik glossy white or possibly red tap - since your saddle is white I'd start with white tape. Also need the seat post and stem to match IMO. And take the seat bag off.

    Yes hot. Except the handlebar tape....or is that a tribute to Chris Anker Sørensen when he cut up his fingers in the TdF?

    Understated, but still HOT. I'd go with the black chainrings too.
