    Appreciate all the feedback.

Either a set of black lizard skins 1.8 dsp or may even try the Handlebra variety.

    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...

    Hot. I really dig that. I bet it would look ever better if you had taken the picture more level instead of looking up at it.

    dont take it too personal. It has a very long headtube, which for me is difficult to make look good. That saddle is an eye sore as far as looks go. As for comfort, I hope it ends up working for you because the search for a comfortable saddle can be difficult for many people, I know it was for me. The stack height under your stem is very tall, which doesn't help when you have such a tall head tube already. saddle bag in the photo never helps. chain on big chain for staging purposes. taking a photo from a straight profile might help. What is this, a 58 or 60?

    I'd like to see the OS-99 CSI replaced with something carbon, black decals.

    Keep in mind that for actual riding, comfort > > > > > aesthetics, so if the stack height and saddle work for you, don't change them. To add to what Bianchi said, if you drop the stem to the top of the head tube, flip it, cut the steerer, replace the saddle with something more low profile like a Specialized Toupe, put the chain on the big ring, and remove the decals from the wheels and leave the saddle bag out of the shot, you'd have a hot bike IMO.

    This bike was quite nice, but has been replaced.

    I know you didn't post that for consideration, but man...that's just a good looking bike

    I don't think I've posted the latest version in this particular thread yet, since I replaced the white Zipp decals with the extra lightweight aero black decals....but it'll come around again...

    Not my bike, so don't hate the poor quality cell shot. However, it's a teammate's new ride, and I think it is smoking so I thought I'd share.
