    OK here goes...

    I'm on the fence about it. I'm not a fan of -17 deg stems because I think they look odd below level. also dont care for the cages. Hate the aesthetics of the SMP saddles. I dislike seeing large computers (garmins and others alike) on the stem, Id rather see a garmin bar mount that places it out in front of the bar. Its completely personal and not needed, I just think it cleans the cockpit up a bit. All of these are obviously pure aesthetics.

    BUT

    I am a big fan of the black team machine! Boyds look great on there too! With your set up, I think you could go either way of keeping the decals on or removing them to go with the all black wheels. Personally, I love how a wheel looks with logo's while moving so I vote keep them on. Good saddle to bar drop.

    As wooooooooooooooosh said, I think to myself, would I take a second look at this bike if I saw it riding on the street? Yeah I would, so I will give it a hot.

    so a deliberately added piece which increases drag?

    sorry I don't think I would add that add this to my bike, the colnago is pretty enough

    This is all personal to me. I dont like colnago's, though this frame isn't bad at all. most have disgusting colors splashed on them. I also am not a campy fan. Dont like how they look aesthetically. Wish the garmin mount was a little lower and not sticking up so much. I like the white seatpost as i think it matches the bike nicely, but wish the stem was white to also match. If the stem is going to stay black, I would personally like to see a black seatpost to give symmetry.

    It's a pretty sweet ride no doubt about it, but I'll echo some thoughts, minimize the bottle cages to a lower profile (I'm really like the bontrager xxxlite), a little overlogo'd overall. I think I saw that you have the ability to ghost, I'd definitely do it, not so much the boyd name it's just that there is a lot of white outlining going on over there . funky looking saddle, is it comfortable? I've not seen it before these last two bikes. and lastly.. yeah gotta put that computer ahead of the bar (for me it's simply a sight thing, I wear progressive's and can't see the data when the computer is mounted on the stem ha!).

    pretty freaking stellar though and I'm not a fan of BMC's looks

    No sense me repeating the minor criticisms noted of the BMC, and well, the bar drop says "pro look" nicely. You also appear to have one of those newfangled ponytail/speed indicators.

    everytime I see Boyds, I wish I'd gotten in on their 2012 38mm closeouts!

    This is pretty hot. But as an OCD, i would slam the stem and change to a 6 degree 3T ARX Team stem to have that little bit of red highlight (working well with the other red bits on the ford and seatpost), change the curvy bottle cages because they don't fit well with the clean lines of the bike, and de-decal the BOYD logos on the wheelset (they clash with the BMC logo). That would make the bike super hot.

    I was expecting that I can live with my training bike as "room temp", it's just a training bike after all

    Thanks for the replies.

    If it had a black saddle and tape it'd be smokin' hot. The stark white of the frame vs the duller white of the saddle and tape brings it down a few notches.

    Still hot, though.

    I'm with the others on the wheel decals, saddle, bottle cages, and computer. Wouldn't want to repeat what had previously been said.

    I'm a fan of BMC bikes, but this is only close to hot at best.

    Also not a fan of SMP saddles - look's like a witch's nose! Have the steerer cut properly.

    I like Colnagos and white bikes, and I also thought of getting a white seatpost on mine (I have two white bikes), but it doesn't look nice.

    As with the BMC, just close to hot.

    Hot, nice job getting the Gatorskin logo opposite the wheel logo and nice picture.

    It's DA/Ultegra so we can forgive the chainring mistake
    what is this 'road tax' you speak of?

    thanks for noticing! the cold weather + this thread has made me a little OCD (and bored when I'm home staring at the bike) so I've been fidgeting with it everyday.

    My wife gets a kick out of me waxing it every few days with my $50/jar car wax. Once it gets warmer, I'm going to ride the heck out of this thing!

    I do the same thing... obsess about keeping it clean in cool weather but then in the summer I say WTH... too busy riding it.
