    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.

    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.

    Boy! Are you going to be in trouble! "Posing" the bicycle is very important! Accessories can be troublesome, too!
    Nice background though!
    Nice bicycle, too!

    As it sets not hot.

    Now, turn it around, take the saddle bag off, take the aero bars off, big ring front, small ring back and it may have a chance.

    For the di2 cables, they should be run on the drive side so that they are hidden better.

    Whoa! There's a lot going on in that photo: SS Pinarello with cantilever brakes, Vintage MTE setback seat post, old school top tube stickers.

    I can feel the sand and salt in my teeth. Hot!
