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

Ok I won't but you also should have removed the water bottle Sharp looking bike, steel is real and you've got deep section rims but it all works together old and new. Can the red sticker come off the rear rim? It doesn't work so well with the black n white thing you've got going on and there's no matching one on the front rim.

I like this bike a lot, the major downfall is the mixed and matched groupset. Black 105 brakes, FD, and pedals would put it over the top.

I like the plain Jane look better than huge logos and decals, but Stan's was nice enough to give me the hoops so the least I can do is give them some free advertising.

IKR that chain ring guard is like a trash can lid, the old ones are probably props in the play Stomp by now.

Hot Soma Smoothie. Always liked that frame although I do not like the white color.

That's hot, whatever it is!

Most people are interested in what the drive train is as well, so next time shoot the bike from the other side. Thanks!

Be thankful that you did not post here in the Hot r Not several months ago, when the (non-existent) "rules" were heavily enforced, else you'd be getting a pretty good whipping

Rules are rules. Satire or studied self-seriousness. Form your own opinion and/or sense of style. No one really cares.
