    Forgive the parascope I just finished the build today and need to get some hours in the saddle before I decide to cut the steerer. Heading to Sufferlandia in a few minutes.

    Like the Ritchey - but the red on the stem jumps out.

    The Pug would be hot if not for the ugly black Ultegra crankset. Get a silver Athena on there!

    There are a couple of red stripes painted on the frame, they just aren't showing well. I think the DA crank looks out of place if anything. I may change it up this year.

    some final notes

    1) the background is the concrete block house of a roadway that makes a flyover by where i live. makes for a nice background
    2) shot with my trusty old Nikon D40X with a Nikon 50mm AF-s 1.8. I can't say enough about this lens. Its cheap ($200), fast, light and robust. often times i don't need a tripod in low light because of to 1.8. I've gotten rid of all my other Nikon lenses and i just use this now. if you shoot nikon you need this lens
    3) the bike is awesome to ride. The one thing i was nervous about is the saddle - its a 90 gram un-padded taiwan carbon saddle. Its actually not uncomfortable at all. but because there is no cover i felt like i was sliding all around it. the saddle is now 2cm higher than in the picture to match saddle height on other bikes
    4) the carbon bottle cages inspire no confidence at all. I'm gonna switch back to more secure cages for all the races with crap roads.
    5) the handle bar position is lower than other my other bike. has felt really good so far. so i'm probably gonna keep it that way.
    I have to agree!
    I wanted an affordable prime lense, & now I find this lense to be my favorite. I rarely remove it from the body.

    I agree that Ritchey deserves a full Ritchey component upgrade in Wet Black.

    I'm afraid you're in the wrong forum...
    I love R5's, but unfortunately that don't get any love here on BF.
    Trek, Cervelo,& Specialized(more recently) are on the "BF blacklist".

    Considering this cost me about 1100 dollars total to put together, I think I've done quite well for myself.

    +1, the combo of nose down saddle and upish turned bars appear to form a valley of scrunchedupness.

    This. Might get it done in the budget thread, but not full tilt.

    Both the BMC and the ChinaCarbon are hot.
