    Thanks for all the "hot's". I'm happy with it too.

    Yeah, I know.
    According to my "perfect bike fit" I need a 61x54 (I'm a long legs/short torso guy) with a 100mm stem and 2cm setback seatpost.
    This 60x58 with 0 setback and 80mm stem comes very close. Have tilted the saddle slightly upwards. I'll experiment with putting the saddle further back.
    Will also replace the 8 stem with a 17 one, I can use the extra drop and it will look better.

    A quill stem would draw less attention to the shortness, and you might be able to go a centimeter or two longer on the stem with some shorter reach bars.

    I definitely recommend switching to a quill if you're going to go -17. It will look way better.

    Hot.

    And no joking about losing our summer, the thought saddens me. I recall two years ago where we saw 60s and rain until the end of June...I do NOT want that.

    I do like the bike but to be hot overall it needs polished alloy seat post, stem "quill" ceramic coated brake surface "black" or fully polished alloy rims with gum wall tires. The frame and groupset are Hot!

    For the Inde Fab olive green bike - I am not a big fan of compact road frames but I can see where this would make for a stiff and responsive ride. I am a Ti owner so I would give this a hot but I am bias... The Zip crank set is kind of cool. The anodized red head set spaces jump out like a red light however. Maybe if your hubs were also red... But other wise, I like this bike And it is very light weight as the OP stated. I do like those wheels but the comment about loosing the Wheelbuilder.com decal would simplify their look. I have never been partial of the HUGE Schwalble name on their tires.

    They used to be Soul C4.0s. Now that I've replaced everything but the rims, they're mine. The rear has a PT G3 hub, the front a DT 240s. Spokes are CX Ray all around.

    I'm giving this one a thumbs up even though it has a buncha red....looks set up to ride hard. Every time I see a torelli I recall that I know where one of these 20th anniversary edition frames is for sale, in my size, never built...not this one though:

    The Torelli is hot even if the speed sensor is in the excited position.

    The Merckx is hot and just looks so right.

    The Dale... Oh look, another black bike.

    HOT! I am thinking about building an EVO. How much does it weigh with the Cosmics?

    I don't really know, around 15lbs I think. They're really heavy wheels, the wheels without skewers or a cassette were almost 1800 grams.

    Have you considered removing the red stripe from the stem? I think it would look cleaner without it.

    Here is mine.

    Before.


    After.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    I'd normally agree, but his frame looks like it has red highlights, like on the top-facing section of the DT.
