    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

    that saddle needs to be leveled out and drop some spacers/cut steerer. The look is really nice and You got good wheels on there too. It has some real potential for it to be HOT and is close, but not yet HOT for me.

    The wheels are really nice. I'd keep the wheels, but possibly take the stickers off if they can be taken off.

    Take the stickers off the wheels and replace the bar tape with plain black and it will look much better. Is just too busy now.

    i know it is a nice unit for the money but aesthetically, the 105 crankset isn't doing it any favors. It just isn't a pretty piece of aluminum.

    No doubt. Here they are with the stickers during my test ride. Wanted to make sure the wheels were okay before i pulled off the stickers and be stuck with them had i already debadged.

    All's good....ready to rip em off now!

    What do you think of the new bars? those are quite different from the bars you had last.

    the bike looks fine. saddle still doesn't look level but that might be the angle of the photo. I know this is hard to comprehend coming from me, but dont worry about it being a HOT. Ride it how it should be set up for you.

    I would leave the crankset alone. It's not worth the cost at this point. Ride it and enjoy. This winter (if you have one where you are at) remove the wheel decals and go all black bar tape. It will clean things up and make the frame stand out.
