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

I think the bike looks nice, but nothing pops for me.

+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.

Now you've made me look for defects on purpose! I really counldn't find any . Nailed it down to the Osymetric rings. Although (preference) I see the handlebar as being very shallow. It's super hot nonetheless. The BMC material has been titillating lately.

Thanks! Actually the rings are Rotor but still oval. Good eye The bar is 3T Ergosum and it's the most comfortable bend for me. I have a beautifull PRO integrated stem/bar combo but don't use it because I don't like the bend...go figure
