    It rides nice, honestly it's the best bike I've owned. I've had the G5, a Caad10, Caad9, an SL3, and other carbon bikes and although it's not the most Aero "Aero" bike out there it's one of the best crit bikes I've ever ridden. It's not as smooth as the BH Ultralight but in my opinion having ridden them both side by side it's every bit as stiff and handles better in my opinion and (probably placebo) it feels faster at and easier to maintain higher speeds with.

    rear derailleur cable housing is crazy long.
    i would also prefer black cable housing.

    but all in all definitely a nice bike

    its definitely nice...

    but some things i would tweak to make "hot" to me, would be....

    i would move the hoods down on the bars a touch so that the hoods are level with the tops...
    and the seatpost seems crazy long. perhaps the saddle is angled down a touch much... (again, to me...)

    but yes definitely very very nice

    While it doesn't always look good the housing length looks correct for Sram Red. They specifically mention a longer RD cable for proper function. I have noticed a much better feel with a similar length on my setup.

    Yup pretty much correct, I do plan on going nokon cable and housing eventually, and that will let me cut it a bit shorter.

    SRAM recommends 36cm for the RD housing length.

    really? i didn't know, havn't had the chance to try SRAM yet...
    although....the black specialized above has SRAM and dosn't look nearly as long. maybe its a large difference in size between the bikes....

    instead of swapping to a shorter stem we scooted the hoods back about a centimeter, maybe less. it doesn't feel so stretched out like this. the saddle angle i can tweak as i ride it more. i rode 28 miles last night and it felt fine but i'll probably tilt it back a little just to play with comfort. the seat post height is on the money.

    Zero offset seatpost might be in order, that saddle is getting to be well behind the BB.

    Here is a good video explaining it form Sram. The 36cm is a good starting point but frame design and cables used will change that.

    I think it might be a cannondale, but I'm not sure, there doesn't seem to be anything written on the seat stay.

    Just joking. I give hot's to the 'dale and the colnago.
