    Seriously? Who'd give a crap? Or even notice? Or mention it if they did?

    me too. Hey I run a 34x32 lowest gear now and ran a 39x25 last year. I can do both, but guess which one I go up long climbs faster with?

    The Roubaix can also accommodate wider tires and damp vibration better than the Tarmac or Venge.

    Just because you have a Roubaix...don't mean you have to set it up touring style...

    Tom Boonen won Paris Roubaix...on a Roubaix.

    Done.

    Also, would prefer silver rims. Still a lovely bike though.
    Silver would look very nice. Now check out the bars.

    aesthetically it looks much better! But how does it feel when you ride? those hoods looks like they would be hard to reach. Maybe it because I'm not used to a classic bar.

    I'll let you know. I need to spend some time on the rollers with the bike and make my assessment then. This is my first road bike - my others are a Kona JTS and All City Nature Boy so I'll need time to get used to the geometry of the Marinoni.

    You must be very long-armed. Long top tube, very long stem, classic reach/drop bars.

    So much better.

    I'm a wee bit sad to see that my own bike dropped off the bottom of page 495 without a single comment, but ah well.

    Honestly that photo is too busy and the bike seems to be out of focus, makes it difficult to be able to appreciate the bike. How about getting us a better photo? Make sure you follow the rules, valve stems at the bottom, crankset level with driveside pointed forward, big front ring, small back ring.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Crankarms in line with seat tube is acceptable as per the H-r-N charter too.

    Maybe so, but level looks better.

    Long arms, long torso, short legs - weird.

    HOT.

    Now unwrap the bars and push the hoods back about 5 degrees. It'll keep your wrists from being destroyed and shorten the reach a bit.
    If only I had the real estate on the bars to push the hoods further back. The bars are Cinelli 65 and pushed back more the levers begin to cant to the sides and starts to look strange. Time to look for some Cinelli 64s! Reach wise, I may consider slipping on a 100mm Cinelli XA.

    Older Cinelli stems are usually a 26.4mm clamp. You might be able to shim it, but it's not ideal.

    They converted to 26mm in the 90s so there are some out there with both clamp sizes.

    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
