    For the Cinelli to work for me, it needs a different, less contemporary seatpost. Either a Campy of the appropriate vintage or group, or, something like a Miche Supertype.

    The GURU wins even while violating the staging rules. Nicely done. The Cinelli would benefit from a different photo angle; very close though

    I'd like to see the Guru from some different angles. Plus the derailleur cable is a little long for me and somewhat distracting Looks like it'll be hot when we see the other angles though

    Vintage campy road seatposts are too short for his setup. I know this because one of my bikes has the pictured miche instead. Coincidental, my other bike uses a setback Thomson.

    The Guru seems to have been staged perfectly to avoid showing off the stem erection

    Still a very nice looking bike.

    Agree about the cable. I was so excited to get it finished I neglected to change the cable length, my apology. It will be changed along with the bottle cage. It's a "placeholder" until I find the right titanium cage. I like the Kings but there are others that I'm considering. Plastic will work just fine until I find perfect set of ti.

    Ah thanks yes very nice the guru is! Still think the derailleur cable needs to be shorter though ( heck it's not a SRAM derailleur after all )

    Ha! I'm sure you know that I'm just goofing around, stellar bike. I hope it rides as well as it looks

    Correct. I originally had an aero post, like the one below, but max height was maybe 140, 150mm. On top of that, the Supercorsa top tube is a little on the short side compared to some of my other bikes and no one wants to see a 140mm stem.

    Well...everything is evolving...slowly.

    Not shown in this pic is that I recently added some 6800 pedals, but that really makes little difference overall. Either way...its a work in progress.

    So..any closer to "hot"?
