Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

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

(randomly borrowed from the google images)
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.

Ding, ding ding, we have a winner! Exactly what it is. The very top of the highest point in Portland, Council Crest.

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"?

As seemingly functional as that seatpost claims to be it will probably never get approved in this thread.

Does my CAAD10 w/105 and Ultegra belong here or in the poverty section?
http://imgur.com/a/ukIY0#0
It's not a $10,000 rig, but it gets me by.

I adjusted the saddle and made the RD housing longer, looks better now but rainy outside. The only thing left to want is a power meter, gray Ultegra brakes and a DA RD are on the way.

How is your chain in the big ring on top and small ring on the bottom?

That's what they're marketing as a mid-compact crankset, no?
