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

Probably.

Seriously over-pronated ankles and open float.

A great bike I'm sure. It's just fascinating to me to see how much people have in their bikes vs what they are getting.

Here, I'll post one of mine. Yes, it's been posted before but as to this question.

This is a 2008 Felt F2 w full Dura Ace group set, Mavic Kysyrium SL wheels and Michelin ProRace3 tires. Weighs in at 15.2 lbs with Speedplay pedals installed. I bought it used on CL and after all of my upgrades have about $1,500 in it.

Doesn't hold a candle to yours, but a few dollars less as well...

Ok, what i've got into it.
Framset and SRAM Red parts, about @2000.00. I had the wheels, tires, saddle, bar, pedals and i'm borrowing the SRM. So really it hasn't cost me very much at all. I sold my previous year 6.9SSL for $4000.00 and put this together. Not sure where all that extra cash went, though

i remember test riding that gt a couple years back when i was buying my first road bike. really impressive welding and i found it rode and fit much better than the roubaix. nice bike, but first one i have seen in the wild (so to speak). nicely set up and photographed but not quite hot though.

Not the first time either. There is another great looking road build equipped with a clip-on aero bar, a Roubaix SL2?/3? posted on here as well.

Seeking opinion... I'm considering to change out the crank of the look.... Thinking of either Sram red or rotor... Comparing price wise... I'm leaning towards the Sram... Would the normal Sram red fit the look beta or the black edition be beta? Or simply rotor will win hands down simply for its look?

Aesthetically, my personal choice would be Rotor but what you currently have looks great already. If anything, I'd get a set of Praxis Works chainrings; if you ever decide to upgrade to 11 speed, Di2 or EPS, those rings and crankset would work flawlessly with any of those upgrades.

I already told you Rotor Crank with Praxis chainrings! Life would be SO much easier for people if they would simply listen to ME!!

I agree with primov, that set up would be a great choice for both performance and aesthetics.

Here goes nothing. Hope to have my new 3T 6 degree stem in today. My riding posture has improved since the fitting.

That looks like a 17 degree stem, not a 6. Oh, and not.

Correct - That's what is on the bike currently. Waiting for the 6 degree to show up from chain reaction.

So... I have a build I'm being driven mad over. It's a late 2000's Ridley Cheetah Team TT Bike. Has the serial number 0000006, and was painted for the Adler team from NYC. I had some NOS Record 8/9 bits in the garage + NOS Campy wheels and decided they would look good on the bike, but have had some reservation after installing the parts because they're not period specific. BTW, the bars are cinelli angel (have the unused pinup) but need the black 8 spd. bar end shifters if I decide to continue.

Anyhow, please don't be mean about the saddle, or lack of a headset - also the back tire has no air. I only put the stuff on for the pic.

You guys in this thread are the most critical, but most spot on about a bikes' looks.

Looking for insight, and what you would outfit this bike with...

Rotor has a all black crank that comes on the Open 29ers. Not sure if they are available aftermarket.

While we're on the subject of chainrings...

For the new cannondale, I think I'll stick with the Hollowgram SI cranks, but am thinking I'll change the chainrings...should I go with the c'dale spider rings or the praxis rings?

The cdale spider rings look bad arse but are expensive. The Praxis rings perform and look great. I have friend that was selling a brand new spider chain ring set. I can ask if you are interested.
