    tape is white Easton cork. It's dirty, but I think it can last until the spring. The off colour saddle and bars is due to the fluorescent lighting.

    Jim, all those bikes are HOT. Of course, the Merlin Cyrene (gush), Vitus, Paramount mixte, Basso (hot enough to overcome the splatter tape), Paramount track bike, and Litespeed Classic are all exceedingly hot. I don't remember seeing the Paramount track bike before. Very nice.

    I like the color. I'd like to see a better picture though. Based on this picture, its very much a not for me. The stem/bars look all sorts of funky. Don't like the crank, don't like the long head tube.

    Dig it. Unique/not cookie cutter and it is clearly getting use.

    Stem and bars look funky? hahaha yeah ok ... 120 negative stem with Ritchey EVO curve bars....I guess they're funky and its a race bike ...the crank isn't made to look pretty its made to produce massive power! The bike is a 61 so you don't really get a choice on the head tube buddy ...... Thanks for your comment ;-)

    This thread is all about staging. staging the bike and taking a photo that makes the bike look best. When you (anyone) take a picture of a bike from a low angle looking up, it always looks weird to me. Yes, the bars look funky to me because of the angle this photo was taken. I cant tell from the picture, is that a -17 degree stem? If it is, I wont like it. I cant stand the look of a -17 degree stem. ESPECIALLY on frame that has such a sloped top tube. The bike is a 61 and have no choice in the head tube, I get that, but doesn't mean that I give it a pass just because of it being circumstantial. Like I said, I'd like to see this bike with a better photo.

    This isn't the "what road bike do you have" thread, its the hot or not thread, its all about aesthetics, not if it fits you or your riding style.

    I dig the color, but I have to agree with b10...the crankset isn't aesthetically pleasing - you can run SRM with other cranksets. A sloping top tube and -17* stem looks funny. Gatorskins on a race bike seem weird to me. The tire logo doesn't seem to match up with the valve stem on the front tire. The bike isn't properly staged.

    Now does that take anything away from your ability to ride it, race it, and probably kick butt in the process...not at all. Would it be staged like this on Specialized's website...probably not. Is it still a nice bike, yeppers.
    Hey guys, lets go play bikes!

    Dude, I know you need to think you're the Mayor, but give it rest. Better yet, why don't you go start your own "Most Awesome Bicycle Pics" thread where you can be a weenie all you want about 'staging' and other silliness. This thread was started before you were even a member, and it's utterly ridiculous for you to be prancing around telling people what it's "all about," especially when you're wrong about it.
