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

Terrible. Spending all that for a top performance bike and riding it like an old man with 50 years of back ailments. Super lame.

The before 'n after pics you can see, it was "mostly" a 105 bike... I replaced the FSA brake calipers with 105, and added 105 pedals ...

The Rotor crank SpeshulEd is a great option, and probably what I'd go for. That said, there are a few good BB30 adapters that would allow you to use a Shimano crankset with no issues or penalty.

Hotter than most "modern" bikes posted here. Although brown bar tape and saddle make it even prettier IMHO

The lack of logos on the Rails helps out since the Evo frame is kinda busy
