    Lol ok. So because the thread was created before I joined, I can't take part? Good to know. I give MY opinion. If you think I'm wrong, then that's your opinion. There are plenty that agree with me. Its no big deal man. I'm opinionated in this thread, but that's all this thread is about. Simmer down

    From a "hot" perspective, it is never the -17 stem that is wrong. A -17 degree stem is the best looking stem for a road bike. If a -17 stem isn't parallel with your top tube it is the frame that's wrong.

    cool it. as far as I can tell, bianchi10 is doing exactly what you're supposed to do in this thread: give your opinion on photos of other peoples bikes.

    Ive never been fond of the setback thomson seat post. I usually prefer bar tape and saddle to match. BUT, I dig it.

    I think its a nice color choice. Unique and really stands out.

    There are two things that bug me about the bike.

    1) SRM Power Meter is just plain ugly. If you could get a black version it would help, but it may be just too bulky and beyond help.

    2) Cables. Sloping top tubes just don't look right with external cables. There's this weird gap that looks unfinished.

    No, it's not ALL ABOUT staging. You obviously don't mean that, because if it was then an unattractive bike would automatically qualify as Hot just because it was staged perfectly. And we wouldn't want that.

    What you mean is that by popular convention we have come to understand that staging can sometimes be an important factor. On many occasions it deservedly is, but in many other cases I've seen it used to discredit an otherwise Hot bike. We don't want this either, I'm sure.

    Originally, way before the birth of this thread, the white garage door thing and pedal placement thing was just a joke, just another way to have some fun around here. This thread takes it too seriously. Everybody needs to simmer down and lighten up with the staging crap, and have some fun like it was originally intended.

    My wife isn't much of a rider but luckily she doesn't care what I spend on bikes and how many I have at any one time. My collections constantly rotating...as long as they don't infringe upon the living spaces I'm good to go.

    Thx. The track didn't make the rounds very often and eventually found a very happy owner in the D.C. area.

    Nice work. That head tube looks bigger than the rest of the frame, is that a standard geometry S-Works?

    Just so everyone lightens up about the crank and pink power meter ....That crank and power meter is from my coach and is pink because it was his late daughters favorite color. I could change both of them but they are staying as is to honor his daughter. As long as I race bikes...both of them will be on my bikes !!!!

    I am 6'4" as well (not that that has all that much to do with it). Here's my fit on two bikes. Both are fairly normal head tubes (58ish size bikes), the November head tube is 19 mm and works very nicely with minimal spacers.

    Given the stem you're using, it looks like you could use a bit shorter head tube.

    wut? It looks like a lot of head tube to me, even for a 61 cm frame and I asked a question.

    What is your beef?
