    Everything is done right on that cervelo, the angle of the stem fits that top tube well, stem is slammed, deep dish carbon wheels, staging is good, but there is just something about it that makes it Luke warm for me and I don't know what it is. Might just be the geometry of the frame, I don't know. I still like it a lot, but its not super hot for me. I really want to give it a Hot though

    De Rosa will always be hot.

    Cannondale needs the 52 to be the same color as the Rail. Still hot.

    Cervelo is Hot. My bet is the short leg/long torso look of the set-up, Bianchi10.

    That's exactly it. The old man geometry always makes it look a little "off".

    No one commented on whether to keep the decals or not.

    Reynolds had decent decals, then their decals were awful, and now they're just kind of bad. I say no decals except for the valve decal.

    Here is a photo of what your bike would look like with decals off. Photoshop always helps give a better idea instead of trying to guess which would look better.

    Thanks for all the great comments about my Ritchey, ( Dtrain I fixed the rear brake cable, the front brake cable was sitting underneath it pushing it up). Been out on a couple of rides now, such a smooth, comfortable ride and handles like a dream

    I agree with this! I bought my reynolds used and the valve decal had been removed. I'm too cheap to buy a new set of decals just for the valve decal but I think thats the hottest way to roll the reynolds...simple and understated, but everyone still knows what they are.

    Saw the photo...didn't read the words with it? No tape because Primo didn't put it on yet.

    Thanks for the photoshop!! Yeah, I ran my Attacks with just the valve stem logo, and I really liked it like that. I actually do like the full on limited edition grey decals as seen on the pic. However, it looks and screams "I'm fast", which I am not at all. I think i may remove the Reynolds decals and just leave the valve stem logo and the powertap logo.

    Appreciate all the feedback.

    I wanted to dial in the fit of the shifters on the Tornova handlebar before wrapping it up. I was going to stick with the Fizik apple green tape I used before, but it doesn't look aesthetically right with the gumwalls. Either a set of black lizard skins 1.8 dsp or may even try the Handlebra variety.
    Speedvagen... Yes, please.

    Recommend do that! I'm very happy with the leather tape now on my bike...Adarga is the brand, but they don't make it in green. It comes with a backing, unlike the Handlebra product...
