I'll jump on the NP bandwagon too...this one ^^^ is HOT
"I tried being reasonable, I didn‘t like it."
"I understand. I just don't care"
Sorry, just can't get past that.
Ridley is a not.
A frame like that needs deep wheels. That's all.
I saw this same Ridley Noah frameset in person with Campy Record and aero wheels; Super Hot ! Potential.
Not the first time I have put my bike on here. Just waiting on team decals, and new bartape. Also, rear wheel doesn't match because I am waiting on my stages power meter, and am borrowing a powertap for the time being.
Kinda what I was thinking.
Regardless...not for me
Sorry for not being 53x11, but switched from Zipps to my old wheels and got some gumwalls. Classy as hell if I may say so. Don't mind the tape, I'm mocking up a paintjob I'm gonna be doing later this summer. It shall be winner.
Your setup is a shoe in for a hot bike, BUT I personally don't like those tires at all on that bike. I also don't like -17deg stems. Can't wait to see new paint job on it.
I want to like it and am on the fence but it just doesn't do it for me as it sits here. After paint job I would love to see it deposited. This bike has serious potential.
What color scheme you going with?
It'll be sorta Mondrian-ish, like Looks. Stripping everything to bare aluminum, painting top part of top tube in black, lots of stuff to do actually. I'm going for a new cockpit anyway, this is WAAAAY too long for me. Vibe 7s bar and stem, which is -10, just to please you. I'll be building up some China carbon clinchers too, can't wait to see how all of this ends up.
There is a lot I like. I actually like the paint job and I wouldn't mess with it if it was mine.
+1, looks quite nice already. I love white bikes.
^Finish it and then ask. Don't post a bike clearly stating that it's not finished. Right now it's a not for me. And rotate those bars up when you do the rest...
Those with a paint scheme like you mentioned would easily get a "hot" in my book. Can't wait to see it.
just noticed the red brake calipers too. That's a nice touch.
