    And what are the chances the mods delete/move a GF edition if I post it in the 41? Perhaps the requirement is two fold... you must post a picture of your girlfriend and your bike, in the same thread... bonus points if your girlfriend is on your bike?
    You totally just proposed.

    Haha... not yet, but I've been given the ultimatum. To her credit, we've been dating for 8 years. I'm 30, she's 32... lived together for years... just bought a condo together... and for those with an Asian girlfriend, I'm sure you can appreciate some of the cultural differences. Her family is planning a trip to Taiwan later this year and if there's not a ring on the finger, I can't go.

    so a 1985 aluminum Cannondale, with all paint sanded off and polished, is hot........but a 2013 Carbon Evo isnt? wow, tough crowd...lol

    I had just moved the ISM Century to the new Evo when I took that pic. Now it has a generic on it for when/if I ever ride it again.

    The MASI is my g/f's and is a pretty nice ride too.

    The Ca'd I was talking about was the EVO. Did not pay enough attention to the first one to see what it was. I don't think any of them are ugly but rather the only one I consider hot is the Evo.

    Oh, I apologize. I saw Ca'd and thought you were referring to a CAAD (aluminum). I now realize you meant "cannondale" (which both are, but you wouldnt know the polished aluminum was a cannondale).

    I take no offense at others opinions of my bikes, so wasnt upset anyway (hence the "lol" in my original statement).

    yes, the new Evo is definitely hot....Ive only been on 2 short rides with it and love it. It gets to hit some streets and hills tomorrow morning!

I had plan on sending down my other frameset this year but I've got a Ti project that I'd like to build up first. But JKCRB will be my go to business for any custom paint jobs.

    Can you post a pic of both your bikes again? I think it's that time of the year. You have the hottest bike in this thread... and possibly the world. g3c and B10 may disagree, but I don't care!

    Sorry but not. I am sure it is a great bike but it has an identity crisis between modern and old school. I think it'd look hot if you were to go back to an old school crank, put DT shifters, different stem, off with the bottle cages and matching wheels (saw you comment). I'd go backwards in terms of looks to the 90's. Bet is rides good though.

    What is "NYET"?

    I think after ten years of having this bike it might be time for something new. Considering either the r5 or s5. It will feel nice to upgrade.

    Wait. You got Jack Kane to custom paint your bike and you painted it… dark blue? He does some crazy awesome work, but I guess you were going for UNDERstated. REALLY understated. It worked but it's a shame that you didn't showcase Kane's talent with paintwork. It's just meh for me, sorry.

    You've been dating for 8 years, you've bought a condo together and you still don't know if you want to propose?? Commitment issues? Don't believe the hype about marriage, it's an awesome thing. (And yes, I've been married for 21 years and am still hopelessly head over heels - And I'm a guy - And no, she doesn't read this forum. ) Of course, I know there are a ton of people who will say otherwise, but our marriage has a foundation of God and church and from that stems all of the necessary ingredients of a great soup of a marriage. (Humility, respect, humbleness, happiness, service, honor, did I say humility?)

    Rides like a dream and I love it. Weighs in at 19.0 lbs including pedals and cages.

    Note: I'm probably going to go with all-black bartape next time.

    I posted this same bike a few pages back with a crappy night-time picture and build in-progress. I hope this picture vindicates it.

    ^ I love it. True, not crazy about the bar tape color, but if you change, seems like it'd be a shame to go with black. Maybe the orange in the frame color? Or maybe some yellow in the tape somehow. Love your black crankset and the silver seat post and stem. I'm not a typically a fan of older bikes but that one is HOT to me.

    That frame never had downtube shifters - it doesn't even have the bosses for them. Except for the crank and the bottle cages, all components seem to match the age of the frame quite well actually.

    That is very frikkin cool!!


    *edit* -- how much drop you got there? Though, I suppose w/ the ISP, you can always go lower (seatpost) later.
