    Imho it would be better w/ white bar tape with white hoods. Just wrapped my bars in white tape and swapped to white hoods on my venge and I like the look. Great bike man!

    Not for me.

    Never been a fan of litespeed frames. I dont know much about the brand, but I dont like this frame particularly. High stack of spacers. saddle tilted down. Dont like the white hoods. If you were to do white in the front, I would also recommend the white bar tape and black hoods.

    Not. I really don't like white hoods on any bike, the tower of spacers isn't that appealing, saddle nose down. Aero frame with shallow rims is a no no in my book also.

    Rule #40// Tires are to be mounted with the label centered over the valve stem.


    Pro mechanics do it because it makes it easier to find the valve. You do this because that’s the way pro mechanics do it. This will save you precious seconds while your fat ass sits on the roadside fumbling with your CO2 after a flat. It also looks better for photo opportunities. Note: This obviously only applies to clinchers as tubulars don’t give you a choice.

    It'll save a lot more than that when determining if the debris that caused the flat is still embedded in the tire casing.

    Haha, definitely!

    I was just quoting the rules...not like I obey all of them, but this one makes sense to me. I'm also OCD, so when I see other peoples tires not mounted like this, I freak out a little bit.

    2012 Fuji Altamira. I just had the wheels built for me by a local guy. They are HED C2 rims with Alchemy ELF/ORCUL hubs. Been raining so much I havent had a chance to ride them yet. They came in at 1450 grams so that knocked about .25lbs off the bike. I didnt weigh it but it should be about 15.7lbs.

    Did yours come stock with SRAM? What model is yours? Mine's a 2012 2.0, came with ultegra and oval parts - just weird how different they are.

    Nice to see more Fujis around these parts.

    It's the Special Edition Frameset. The SRAM came off my other frame which I then sold.

    I think that you have done a nice job with this bike. With time, you will outgrow white hoods; they will not remain white but require regular cleaning. This is not a criticism of your build or component selection, but my first reaction to the Litespeed carbon frames was that they were really in your face with the size of the name, the huge size of the down tube, and a lack of any stylish accents. I still feel this way and although I can not attest to the ride quality, visually I think that they missed the boat. Where as their Ti bikes have always been stunning, the later models also adopted the bill board size name branding. I really wonder who is making these decisions in TN.

    those bars are hideous on that bike! change the bars, black bar tape and black stem and you got much better chances of getting a hot from me.

    Have you ever gone back and reread any of your posts in this thread? Because a lot of them make you sound like a giant tw*t.

    Here's my new build - a Charge Juicer frame/fork with Shimergo setup (Chorus 11 levers shifting 7700 rd and 6500 fd). The brakes are Paul Racer Mediums. I had a shop cable it up and they recommended the up and over routing for the front. It's getting a Barfly, stainless cages of some kind, and fenders soon.

    What I find aesthetically pleasing is consistent. It may not be what you find appealing and that's your choice. I am picky, so what. I find that a lot of people agree with me, you just may not be one of them. No sweat off my sack.

    Thanks for the kind words, I agree with the billboard branding. Really not that appealing and the font doesn't really do it for me. The picture doesn't really do it justice but the white pinstripe accents the frame's lines quite nicely. At retail price I definitely would not have jumped, but seeing as I picked the stock bike up for $800, I don't think I did too badly

    It's got nothing to do with your sense of taste- I tend to agree with you. It's the sense of self-importance in your posting- as if your designation of "hot" carries some kind of weight and yours is somehow the last word.

    Is english your first language?
