    The old track, hand built korean frame with nagasawa lugs and hodgepodge build.

    The old road rig. Mostly Italian, minus the fork/ cages/ wheels. Not staged properly

    Made the leap to carbon, maybe I'll post it here if it looks good when I'm finished.

    I love that frame. Would be quite hot if the stem was slammed a bit more.

    Decided that rather than just try and swap out my 105 shifters with a newer set to route cable into bar which turns out does need the newer brakes due to the pull, I may as well use this opportunity to go full ultegra 6800, cosmetically though, here's what the new tape, lower stem and matching cages will look like (via sloppy photoshop). Hope this will be an improvement, but I'm on the fence about removing wheel decals. Bike should be back in my hands by Saturday so I can post a proper shot...

    I'd vote no wheel stickers. Those stickers make the bike to "loud" and they take away from the frame.

    Im leaning that way too, maybe its a little loud but considering where I started . I suppose if I want stickers, I could always replace with blacked out lettering.

    Also, if I can't sell my 105 gruppo, may keep to put on a cyclocross frame, still have the old bar and the aksium wheels from this bike, hmm another bike for my collection, n+1 right. A giant TCX frame can be had pretty cheap or even a Ridley or caadx something like that. I feel a next project coming on.

    I think it looks good but prefer no decals on the wheels. Everyone knows they're mavics from the carbon weave. Of course, ghost/black stickers would be pretty sweet as well.
    Hey guys, lets go play bikes!

    Well that's not my bike so... I can't speak to what tape he has. Here are two cell phone pictures of my bike from the old setups I had last year. To the naked eye it is liquigas green or it wouldn't be on my bike, I hate "almost" the same shade.

    I've been on the fence about my wheel decals, too.

    Got it back early. Hopefully much much better than before..

    Thanks for all your advice guys. Now I can save for a new cyclocross frame to put the old 105 gruppo, aksium rims and drop bar on. Nothing wrong with getting an extra bike out of all this trouble....

    By the way, how do you post pics so they are bigger in your posts, I can't seem to get it to work even though I can in other forums.
    I'd say that bike is now hot.
