    Let me know your thoughts on keeping or removing the wheel decals. I'm not sure.
    The only thing I would change on that bike is bar tape, cables and brake pads while you save up for a bike to post in this thread. You had it right with your post in "What road bike do you have?"

    to the best of your ability, ignore my crappy apartment. Going to replace the saddle with a white romin evo as soon as I get my shoes.




    oh, and I forgot to take off the red stickers. oops.

    i dunno man, this could be a pretty hot looking bike if it were a better pic! Set it up against a neutral wall and take a picture from about handlebar level.

    Not hot yet. Solid black or white bar tape would look way better. I guess go white if you're getting a white saddle and already have white hoods.

    I'm not a fan of anything but black or skinwall tires generally. The white tires honestly don't look terrible here though. Just wear them out then replace with something black.

    I agree about the tires. Black tires and I would also go black romin and black tape.

    I would love to see some guy with a sense of humor and money/time on his hands to build up a Denali with Red and Lightweight wheels... May be worthy of a photoshop job.

    No need to apologise, I wouldn't call 105 components "cheap." And anyway, that paint job would still look hot with Sora on it.

    That's what I think of as the definition of most of the "nots" in this thread.

    When I post my Fuji Team Issue, though, it will be due to lack of funds for anything but a beat up old 105 5500 drivetrain with yellow and blue stickers to ruin the good looks of the carbon weave. And I will well deserve my "nots."

    There's a budget hot or not thread, though...

    thoughts on saddle? I used to have a tioga twintail spyder, but it wasn't wide enough
    I feel like this one isn't aesthetic enough

    aesthetically speaking, I dont like it. try Romin evo pro. If you like the tioga but just wasn't wide enough, the Romin might just do it for ya

    Please, I just want to be accepted!!!




    Adjusted to fit me like my fitted bike. The handlebar is 2 cm higher, even with a flipped stem and no spacers. but it shouldn't be a big deal. Might get an angled stem to compensate
