    It's the angle of the picture. I've seen this bike in person and it's freaking hot.

    All do respect, I'm not judging this based on the photo itself. Its a not a hot for me Because:

    -DEEP insertion point of seatpost
    -Stack of spacers, though a majority of it is hidden from the drop
    -Stack of spacer + a positive flipped....17 degree? hard to tell from the angle
    -Dont care for the junction point of the top tube, down tube and seat stays.
    -Dont like the shape or aesthetics of what little I can see of the seatpost.

    I'm sure its a fine bike and I do realize that sometimes a photo just cant do a bike justice. For me, this is a "Not" that isn't even on the fence. This is a solid not for me. So even though you say its hot, we will just have to agree to disagree on this one. Nothing wrong with that.

    I will back you up on this. I've never had good experiences with carbon (or other "composite) cages. I don't go with Ti, but I do (and have for nearly 20 years) stainless steel cages. The never mark up your bottles, then never break, they weigh maybe a couple of grams more and I've not dropped a bottle with them. And yes...I think they're FAR more sexy.

    Some people spend too much time worrying about how their bike looks rather than riding.

    Fair enough. However, taste or visual appeal is subjective. I'm completely smug with the choices I've made concerning my bike. I can appreciate everybody's opinion, but in the end, I didn't build this bike for others.

    Methinks you protesteth too much. Nobody really cares whether you like the feedback you get in this particular thread. To the contrary, when someone gets their back up because they don't like the negative comments (like this case), it gets a little interesting. If you just want folks to look at your bike without commenting as to whether or not they like how it looks, there's another thread http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ke-do-you-have

    I'm still kicking myself for not buying more than one Cutter (Competitive Cyclist house brand) carbon bottle cage when they were on sale for like $12. There isn't anything about it I don't like (aside from only having one).

    I like the bike. I hate the camera angle. Please take a photo from a height equal or higher than your handlebars.

    it took me awhile to figure this out. I not so smart.

    FWIW - i have no problems with the cages. But the can crusher you have on top of the stem needs to go. Its like walking around in a nice suit with the price tag hanging off the back

    Really? I've got carbon cages and they've never marked up my bottles, they've never broken, and yep they're light and look good. Seriously, do some cages have problems with all of these things?? I ride with a bunch of guys and I think they all have carbon cages and no one ever has a broken cage or drops a bottle unless they drop it…?? Strange, it's almost like complaining about helmets falling off peoples head so they've decided to simply wear construction hardhats while cycling instead. Huh?

    I'm not a huge fan of the paint job but the white is a nice touch. IMO, the SLR01 looks a lot better.

    I usually leave a cm or two on top of the stem for resale purposes.

    Carbon cages look great but IME, they tend not to hold bottles well. I'd rather have the extra insurance of a traditional cage.

    Lol, thanks! It's got a 130mm on there right now but I'll probably go back to a 120.
