    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.

    Oh well, your poor comprehension isn't my problem.

    Are we done or would you like to continue and, per usual, tell me that I just like to argue when, per usual, you're stirring and perpetuating?

    It is impossible to tell from the interweb if Whyfi was being snide. Not getting fussed over what others think of how your bike looks is actually good advice to some degree.... I draw the line at massive spacer stacks and erect stems .

    For some reason, I like the Easton decals on that bike. It certainly mimics the theme of the bike.

    Black bar tape and black praxis rings which would quiet down down the wheel decals, which actually look great!!

    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.
    I don't know either one of you but I had the same thought when I read your comment. WHAT?! All he did was ask how he could improve his bike. I thought it was a genuine question. There are a lot of us on here that don't know what we should do to improve our bikes and it was a sincere question. He didn't sound defensive and certainly didn't warrant that comment. Now if you said it in jest, and it was lost in translation, then my dear sir, you get a pass. Besides, your bikes are hot enough that you should warrant a pass. But as an outside observer, it was you in the wrong this time - not Mr Super Moderator…

    Needed to leave my fitter some room to adjust things since the bike's pretty much brand new.

    Good photo setup.

    The bike is acceptably hot, but that's just me.

    I assumed there'd be a sensible reason behind it but that doesn't mean that it doesn't detract from the look of the bike (for me) and this is after all the Hot or Not thread.
