    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…

    Hot.

    Just a stack of spacers away from being smokin'.
    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.

    I'm pretty sure they are black shifters, just then light hitting it in the picture.

    I think they're the silver 105. That is what comes stock on the SL02

    Looks like a full silver 105 group to me.

    Your most recent bike purchase didn't come with a full frame DSLR and some fast glass?

    Wouldn't need to be that fast for that photo (or fast but not full frame). Looking at the compression it's on a telephoto lens where you can get that sort of depth of field on a whole range of cameras.

    It was shot with a 100mm @ f/2.8 on a FF body.

    Didn't think it looked like overly fast glass, and the telephoto compression was very clear.

    Nice photo/bike either way.
