Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Hot bike but I dont like the red bars. I think acetone to remove the labels all together or the stealth black option would be better. Even though the frame has red, the front looks heavy with red and the back with minimal. the way it sits now, it looks unbalanced to me.
A simple red seatpost collar might do the trick. Selle San Marco makes a Regal e saddle that's black/red that would really set it off, that is if the saddle fits!

I've never seen a bike bring out the fugly in a modern Shimano crankset quite like this one does. other than that though it's pretty nice.

Total Weight: 15 lbs 4 oz.

Tried the new Ultralite Cirris Ti pedals (112g for the pair, including cleats) but never could get comfortable with the clip in/out….replaced with Speedplay Zeros.

Can’t do much about the stack as Mario’s fleet are designed with very aggressive geometry, so this is about as low as I can go. Very smooth and compliant ride.
those bikes are now sold here in Canada with very aggressive pricing as a new comer in the market (here). I personally haven't seen any around. I don't see the store lasting long.

anyways, back to the bike - I love the very aggressive geometry of his bikes. They're all built for speed.

Depending upon the chainstay shape and rim depth, sometimes that's the only way they'll work.

Bike looks to be set up okay (I'm no expert), but the color ruins it for me....looks like you dipped the rear triangle in the highway striping paint vat...and the photo is slightly out of focus...
