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

Spooky is hot. I like compact frames with traditional bars.

Another Spooky for consideration.

Pic taken just after build up. Bars angled down, and one spacer under stem removed post fit adjustment...

It treads the line a bit, but a NOT for me. Love those tires though, amazing ride. I might suggest sealing the sidewalls, I didn't and they get quite dirty.

The S works could be better staged and photographed, as well. Hot with the previous tires, but not these.

Not, though this bike has a lot of potential. Dont like the aesthetics of that saddle at all. cut steering tube and the red on that stem really stands out in a negative way. Dont like the veloflex gumwall tires on that frameset.

Mis-matched tires (don't see logos on the front??). Wheels not staged correctly. I don't like the cages. Otherwise, hot. Just ride and enjoy!

I do like Blue Competition bikes - bought an RC4 in 2005. Yours would benefit from bar tape that was not yellow and more black components, such as wheels, crankset, etc. Also photograph this with the drive side visible.

Not sure why you'd want to be in this club...but with black tape and saddle, and mid depth carbon wheels, this might be hot....
