    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.

I can't see anything else because of that green on the bars… Ask someone else to look, and then if they agree, get back to us.
    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.

    +2, it looks great. Spendy little dip into the Hot or Not thread. That went pretty quickly from 'the cables kinda bug me' to 'I'm going full 6800'.

    Not exactly, I want a cyclocross bike too and figured all the old parts from this one will mean I just need to find a decent frame so it works out. But yeah

    Had to be more than that...didn't come over from the UK that quickly. Great for the economy though.

    People are crazy... You might want new rings for the crank too, cause CX gears and such.

    And for me, SO close to being hot. Longer stem + slammed would be nice, but not everyone can do that. So at least cut the stack above the stem.

    Going to ride it like this for a while to make sure it fits me right before I go and chop the thing. But it will happen.


    As for the eventual cross frame, I think a 105 compact will be fine on flat converted rail trails of gravel, so maybe not exactly cross but you get what I mean.

    You mean by lowering the bars? I test rode it and it feels fine so far, not uncomfortable at all. Longer rides will tell though. We'll see.

    He was looking for suggestions in the first place. After a collection of thoughts, he went and upgraded the parts he wanted to. I doubt it was because of peer pressure within the Hot R not, but it may have influenced his purchase. Regardless, nice upgrades.
