    Agreed. That Domane is nice.
    A guy has one locally (with different saddle and SRM) and it looks great in person.

    Again, with the Caad 8, we get another bike that I think is exceptionally well "sorted" and "purposeful" but Not Hot in my view.
    Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.

    It was a jab at the all too boring all black build. The argument was based on the theory that black is not a color as it is the absence of all light reflection, or color in the scientific world. No, I'm not getting into a pigmentation debate.

    a better joke would have been posting and honest to goodness transparent bike:


    Not hot by the way.

    Yeah, its a bit loud. I never noticed until I snapped a pic. Sadly, the only sponsor I've got is myself.

    edit - most of the pics I've seen before have been when I was riding and the spinning wheels don't look nearly as loud.

    I would remove the Williams, & just leave the 3 W's.
    My neighbor has the same bike, its the cause of my "bike sickness". Now I have more bikes, than I can handle.

    I'd love to, but they're under a clear coat and I haven't worked up the courage to try anything creative. If I did anything, I'd just leave one of the W's over the valve stem. They do sell a "ghost decal" kit which are basically more decals to put over these decals.

    I wouldn't mess with them either.
    Just Photoshop them before posting in this thread.

    They're the first carbon wheel I've ever ridden, so not a lot to compare them to in that realm. But, I find them to be plenty stiff (more so than my Ksyrium Elites and I'm 6'3" 195-200). They did come in about 75g over advertised weight (totaling ~1750), which was a bit of a downer. Other than the weight and the inability to remove the decals, I like them a lot.

    I thought it was ugly.

    the geometry is just all wrong.

    The advertised weight didn't include the decals.
