    Yeah...definitely a not. I'm not sure what "one flaw" you see, but the stem and stack height plus the background....white garage door is much better than the over compensating.

    Excellent. Thanks for the heads up.

    I posted my bike a while back but this is a much better photo
    note i clone stamped out the spacer on top of my stem (10mm spacer) because I'm still playing with the fit
    my plans for this bike are a longer stem and shorter reach bars. i think a 3t arx pro would match nicely
    maybe an aero wheelset later in the season if I can find the money

    looks pretty sweet, not to many decals and a very sharp saddle you must feel every bump with that!

    Tool! The owner is a cyclist, not an OCP.

    It's about the bike. I panned it because of the spacers/stem, but the rest of your gripes are BS.

    FTR, it's a new build and he's planning on dropping half the spacers, but doesn't have a sharp blade. The saddle has a slight tilt down, but that was corrected before he finished the first ride.

    The owner isn't very happy about this build. He's used to riding classic Italian steel, and hates how stretched out this bike is.

    BS gripes are what this thread is about.

    It's a thread about taking pretty pictures of bikes. Criticisms tend to be things that detract from it being a pretty picture of a bike, not practicality.

    That is not a pretty picture of a bike, for several reasons. The frame looks too small for the rider.

    To be fair it's really not that good looking of a bike either.

    Well, that's one of the reasons. But not the only one.

    Why are you getting so offended by strangers that don't care for your friend's bike?

    Need some cheese with that whine? Of perhaps a box of Kleenex? You're making yourself look silly! I imagine your face all red while you pound away at your keyboard over what you perceive as a personal attack on your "friends" bike? Really?

    simmer down man. you said only thing. I was just correcting. Go through this thread and tell me one page where someone doesn't point out that the wheels weren't staged, background wasnt good, chain is crossed, bike has bottles in cages, tires not centered over stems....etc. Its not like anyone is singling out your picture. Besides, even if everything I mentioned was in order its still a Not.

    There are two really nice things about that bike.

    1. It's not my bike.
    2. It's not your bike.

    So, there's that.

    I gotta disagree with you there.

    No it's not a piece of aero plastic from the Orient, but it's a very nice looking ride.

    Btw, the owner is already thinking about dumping the frameset on fleabay. It's a bit too small, so now he's searching for a better fitting frame. He wants a classic steel frame ether 130mm spacing.

    Is the Tomassini Techno classic Italian geometry?

    Very true

    I'm not in love with this ride, but with the steerer tube trimmed down, I think it's a pretty fine build.

    I hope he donates the frameset to me. I love the color, and it should fit me at least as well as my Pedal Force.
