it makes me happy.
Maybe it's the angle, but those cables look a little on the short side.
Added this Ritchey Breakaway (travel bike) to the stable, scrapped together mostly from winter bike parts and a few things lying around. I just had to buy the frame/fork/headset, a seatpost, a front derailleur, and a bottom bracket. What say ye Hot or Not?:

Updates to Parlee Z5 SLi....added brakes (black TRP R979 EQ), KMC X10SL DLC black chain, and used Hollowgram SL crank arms (apologies in advance for the green crankbolt, this was off fleabay so is shown as received, black crankbolts have been ordered to appease the Stealth Goddess)...weight as shown is 6.41 kg...
...to all have commented previously they they don't like blue bits....noted....

I wish the headset didn't end so far above the top tube, but still hot!
Love the Parlee but not sure about the blue bits.
Here it is, back from the painter. A Giro/Baum inspired paint job, painted by Jack Kane of kanebikes.com.
A couple minor things to finish up... wire wrap the excess wires up front, chainstay protector. It was so easy to install and dial in the EPS system; it took more time dialing in the ZG brakes. I'll be taking it out for its first EPS ride tomorrow, and will take a much better pic out on the road.
Speedvagen... Yes, please.
