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

Good looking bike! I'm not a fan of the huge easton decals, but otherwise good. SO? How'd you do on this race you supposedly got a "good result" on this weekend? The 41 wants to hear. Makes the bike hotter, after all.

I'd prefer a black, white, or red seat post collar since nothing else is blue on that bike. Hot otherwise though

I'm not a fan of huge white wheel decals. psimet did the same thing for a while with his TEAM ISSUE decals, and it was pretty bad. Like those Eastons, it drowns out the bike.

I agree but there is a blue pine stripe along where the black and white are separated. Not worth replacing.

Thanks milkbaby.
I agree with you was always the plan to run the Wolbers ( just didn't want to get crucified for no front tire), yes the fulcrums are not a bad wheel and strong ( good for where I live, lots of rough roads). Can't wait to take it for a ride with the tubs

So telling someone not to sweat the bike ridicule of anonymous internet denizens is now a bad thing? Um, okay, Billy.

The componentry of his bike is just fine and any criticism would be directed at fit-related issues and/or brand bias. For someone that often disparages the silliness of this thread, I find it funny that you'd pick out a comment that advised him to take the criticism with a huge grain of salt. Then again, you've got a hard-on for me so I guess that it shouldn't be too surprising.

Oh stop, whyffie! When is asking a simple question a sign of intolerance? I kept looking for his intolerance . . . couldn't find any. Does everyone here get a preemptive advisory on tolerance?

To answer your question you just need to start at the beginning of the thread and read about the rules of posting a pic. Big ring, no bag, slam stem, level bars and saddle, etc etc. Your bike is hot, the presentation is not.
