    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?

    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.

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

    This... I think you have bigger issues than whether or not your bike is hot... how about, is it functional or not?

    Yeah...that seatpost is definitely "function over form"...it only gets approval from be due to the functionality of the thing...

    You need to slap whoever installed your levers because they're way too low on the bars.

    Which way would you go with power?

    Stages 6800 arm because I live in abject poverty and can't afford 9k nor an SRM or something "good". I'll probably buy the power meter in August. Now, if I didn't recently incur $8k in medical bills which also required buying a car with an auto-trans, I would have picked-up a nicer carbon frame with 6800 or 9000. However, this bike in it's current form will do just fine, along with that poverty power meter. I finally got a chance to do a proper ride for the first time since the surgery and it was a religious experience.

    I'll admit they need to come up a bit, I am going to take them up next time I wrap the bars...

    I don't care for the white/red cages, even though they match the secondary/tertiary colors, but I think that it's pretty nice, overall. Hell, I don't even mind the red sidewalls...
    It's the spandex.

    The cages were tough. Black doesn't work, total-red is off, silver is a no-go too. I finally decided on the white/red accent because it somewhat matched the bike theme.

    Any suggestions?

    The Specialized above this post has it about right.

    The general rule (for about 95% of drop bars) is that if you put a ruler along the flattish bit at the end of the drops, it should coincide with the tips of the brake levers. Obviously when there's a continuous curve it's not an absolute, but if you treat the last 4" of bar as "flat" you'll get close.
