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

Not bad, but the straight fork does not match the nice curve of the seat stays ... lukewarm

Cables way too long. Too much blue. Bar tape, cables, and sidewalls are just too much. Bike is simply too large to look ok. Sometimes this happens with my shoes. The sample shoe looks awesome, then take out my size and they look like skis... This is kinda what this bike looks like. It's so big the wheels look like 650's...

I've heard and read great and wonderful things about this bike. And it does look sweet. But it's white. I want to like it, I really do. And I DO like it. But it doesn't qualify as "HOT" to me, sorry.

Nice setup and photo, though, I'll give you that.

My Ardennes are "wide" at 23mm. Guess I'm cool already! But sorry to disappoint you, I was just pressing some veloplugs into a set of Reynolds Attacks haha

How are your fingers feeling!? I remember after installing my plugs, I couldn't use my fingers the next day.

Pull the decals off the wheels and you'll be golden.

They look much better without the stickers.

I'd debadge the wheels and level the saddle. (May already be level when the bike isn't on the stand. Looks pointed down though) Nice looking bike! Not hot, though, not to me anyway. But seriously good looking.

The saddle looked level without the stand to me.... Seriously considering to debate the wheels... Or get a secondary aluminum clincher
