    [QUOTE=gc3;15845096]Parlee update - you decide which you like better:

    ...ditched all the blue accents and the dark black felt bar tape...switched to gumwalls....flattened the transition to the hoods....



    or previous version...blue accents and regular black tires...overall weight is the same (6.38 kg)

    [/QUOTE

    Either way the bike is hot, but I will never be a fan of retro yuck sidewalls.

    What say thread? Decided to make this old bike I've had lying around this season's primary ride. (if the picture has red ano skewers, I've already swapped them out for some 6600 skewers for the time being).

    Oh, and it's a Trek. And a stock Trek at that.

    Its a Trek. To make it warm staging will need to be at Hugh Hefners place.

    For 1, the majority of treks are ugly to A LOT of people.

    BUT specifically:
    -Bike is turned on the wrong side for a submission in this thread
    -Chain on small front chainring
    -Crank arms not staged
    -Too much white
    -Colored tires generally look stupid (your bike, case and point)
    -bars tilted up to much
    -Tall spacer stack
    -Stubby stem
    -Stem angle has too much degree
    -Wheels are to be staged with stems at bottom center

    We look for bikes to be properly staged to help show off every part of the bike. They aren't a "must", but having the bike staged properly is just more pleasing to look at.

    Some of the "rules" are not what makes your bike a Not (To me), such as wheels staged, crank arms at bottom center...etc.. Your bike is simply not aesthetically pleasing to look at. It isn't UGLY by any means, but its not a bike I would stop to look at (with admiration anyway). IF I were to change some things to make this bike hot (again, for me) I would stop trying to throw in too much white. Sometimes (most the time) less is more and less is more appealing.

    Black pedals
    Black tires
    Black saddle
    Black bar tape
    Rotate bars down


    For vanity purposes, flip stem and drop 20mm of the spacer stack

    So I ended up slamming my stem and I actually find it much more comfortable than it was before. I picked up a Thomson X2 stem and was debating on replacing my 3T Arx Pro. (for reference, here is my original submission: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...=#post15818084)






    And yes, I am aware that the spacers aren't correct with the Thomson stem and the fork is going to be chopped in the near future.

    Thomson is a 10 degree stem and 3T a 6 degree....I'm thinking the Thomson looks a little nicer since it's level but the 3T matches the color scheme. What do you guys think?

    Also, thoughts on the dustcap? Too big or acceptable?

    For some reason, I took a pic a couple hours before the crit that evening.




    Then I raced that night. Sorry, not the greatest, but it's all I could get from them.






    Not sure, but I'm guessing it was a chainring that did the saddle.


    Back together.
