    I bet it would look even better with black tires and hoods. The red accents are good, but at some point they quit being accents and look gawdy. For me it's past that point.

    The stem looks good, but do you see what I'm talking about with the angle of the stem? There are less spacers and the bar is the same height. I didn't move the bars at all, just rotated them. I would not put a red stripe on the seat post. All your red lines are horizontal or around your tires. Having a line vertical would break the lines visually to me.

    I put black hoods and a carbon toupe saddle on for you. Personally, I think the black hoods, black cages , black saddle, black seatpost and the 3t stem combo looks best.

    Great bike, for sure, but I have had enough of the black and white paint scheme (and my bike is black and white). The red trim helps....not hot....sorry.

    Are you voting on this photo or this bike? The photo is completely photoshopped to help give him a different perspective. His original photo is above.

    Bam! Love the stem! Love the saddle! Good job at the photoshop.

    im gonna look into the stem and the saldde. I do like my red hoods though. Gives me a good glimpse of what it might end up looking like. Thanks

    The big footprint is great in snow, though I guess you could make a case for using them in loose sand - still probably not terribly utilitarian to someone in VA.

    I haven't had a grin on my face like this since I bought my first mountain bike 20 years ago. It's just fun. It's also surprisingly capable- ride this thing into a lawn from pavement and it barely slows down and the ride barely changes. It's a bizarre feeling, like it just doesn't matter what you're rolling over. I had it out on singletrack yesterday, and I didn't even think to worry about the rocks and roots that were obscured by leaves.

Like i said, it is not something necessary, but aesthetically, I PERSONALLY prefer seeing a 6 deg. Since your top tube has such a slope, I think a 6deg would LOOK better in my very personal opinion. There are a lot of folks that love the look of a 17deg stem.

    If you look at my stem compared to yours, you can see that it has more of a rise and yours is more flat.

    Not. Derailleurs don't match calipers or crankset - need to be black. Ugly saddle with stuck up nose. Uncouth deep bars. Red hubs, why? Also looks like a tumour is growing under your shifter hood. WTF? Nice, shiny chain though.

Just dont know how my butt would like it. As for the Tumor...It's not a tumor (In my best terminator voice), the rubber button wasn't lined up properly to the shifter when I put them back on, but has been fixed.









    ;-)

    , I have been thinking about a bar change. I like them, but Thought about a more shallow drop with less ergo. I really like the zipp contour SS bar, but would have a tough time having enve wheels with Ritchey stem and seatpost and zipp bars.. The Red hubs is what came on the wheels I bought from the wheel builder. It was a newer demo set and she gave me a great deal. The saddle....eh, its not the best looking saddle, but its the first one to fit me well.

    I see them at the beach often. And they would be good to get to False Cape State Park http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state_parks/fal.shtml when the Back Bay http://www.fws.gov/refuges/profiles/index.cfm?id=51510 roads are closed.

    Thanks man. I love my bike, but there are a couple things I would like to change if I had the money.
    I have thought about a red crank bolt set. I might. I have also thought about a new bar shape. Not sure what I would go with, but if I did a new bar, I would probably go with an "ultralight" stem to save even more weight.

    How much does it weigh in current trim? It has to be sub 15lbs. no?
