    Arguing with ignorant people is an exercise in futility. They will bring you down to their level and once there they will beat you with their overwhelming experience.

    Finally I've seen a Time bike on this forum! They look sexy as hell, and it is definitely my dream bike (I think ime looks better than Colnago and Pinarello).

    Guru is really nice looking. However I have some question about bike fit. You have a big set-back seat post and the saddle pushed all the way back as well with what looks like a 120 stem. Is the top tube a bit short for you?

    Actually the stem is 130mm! And the top tube is just fine. It is my DNA that is weird.

    Love this bike! I vote hot! The Ultegra crank comes out looking a tad blue next to all that pewterish looking titanium, but that's just nitpicking. Also, while I'm on that, your top tube looks... dirty?

    Is that carbon lugged titanium or is that titanium lugs just painted black?

    It was condensation on the top tube due to it being cold in an A/C'd room and the humidity of the outside once I brought it out for the picture. Lugs are carbon.

    The only thing I don't like about the Guru is the chainrings. They just look cheap. Not saying that they are, but they look it.

    HOT Guru! Staging is almost spot-on, too.

    I'm guessing the guy has a longer torso and shorter legs, and as such needs a slightly smaller frame; as opposed to someone like me with longer legs and shorter torso, where I need a slightly larger frame but shorter stem.

    What size is the Guru? And how tall are you?

    It's funny that you see so many Cannondales, because they only account for about 3% of sales. Vs. 30+% of sales for Trek, which you see very rarely around here. I think that in certain circles certain types of bikes are more common. Trek sells a bunch of bikes, and the majority of their sales are commuting/hybrid type bikes, whereas Cannondale primarily specializes race/road bikes. We all love our super hot race 41 bikes, so there is a lot higher % of riders here on Cannondales. However, you ride down to your local college campus on a Cannondale and it may be the only one you see out of hundreds of bikes ... Just an observation

    You see a lot of cannondales because they make a good looking bike.

    One of the shops in town is getting rid of their cannondales and becoming a trek dealer - they said cannondale sales were slow and heard they were down across the country. I found that interesting since it's practically a prerequisite to own one before getting on this site. Still, Treks are everywhere in the Phoenix area, easily the most ridden brand in the area based on what I've seen. I know about 4 other guys with cannondales, can't even count the number of people with Treks.
