Do it. It's an ugly logo.

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 ...

I donno what to do with the cranks since, it's BB30 ...

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

I could only imagine what would happen if that stem bolt comes loose.

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

Cool thanks.

Just thought someone reading this thread might like to know that the weight difference between Shimano 5600 Group and Ulegra 6800 Group was about 181 grams or .4lbs. I kinda thought it would be a little more, but still not too bad. (group excludes wheel hubs).

I have had good luck with these adapters.
BOTTOM BRACKET ADAPTERS

Fiery 04-06-14 12:20 PM

I don't have any experience with BB30 adapters, but some time ago I was thinking of getting a BB30 frame and running it with a Hollowtech II crankset, and those KCNC adapters seemed like the most straightforward and most effective option out there.

bianchi10 04-06-14 05:41 PM

I'll be posting a thread of a lot of detailed picts with all my current upgrades.

Upgrades consist of:
Dura Ace 7900 Rear Derailleur
Dura Ace 7900 Shifters
Alligator Ilink cables (HUGE thanks goes out to @primov8 for sending them to me)
Dura Ace 7900 11-28 Cassette
Lizardskins 1.8 race tape (LOVE LOVE LOVE this tape!)
Ritchey Logic Curve UD carbon bars (I REALLY like the new shape coming from the Ergo Superlogic bars I had. 1 thing I will have to get used to is the non over-sized top bar that the Logic curve bars lack that the superlogic bars had.)

Thank you!

Yes, I'm hoping to sell this frame off so I can get my Evo. Problem is I'm very specific with wanting a 2 year old, popular frame and color (Black and white). Its been tough to find. But, I'll be patient since I have this little Gem!

gc3 04-06-14 06:02 PM

Looking great still @bianchi10

Welcome!

i would be to if I had that. I will get a supersix soon I'm hoping. Lol!

Bianchi, definitely a great looking bike.

Thanks @gc3. Still a couple things I would like to do, but it would involve a very high $-weight ratio for no performance gain what so ever. I think I will just save for a while and keep looking for my Evo frameset.

What do you think...keep Logo's on or take off?
