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

Appreciated. Yeah, that was what I was thinking about the "saddle looks too far back" comment. But I realized cycledogg probably meant the saddle's carbon rails are being clamped down near the end of the rails (i.e, back end of the rails).

Here is a picture of the drive side of the Tarmac as requested (this picture was taken before I added the Enve cockpit). 52/36 upfront and 11/28 at the rear.

smoking hot! oh, IMO, and not based on any "rules" or guidelines or traditions. Just one guy with an opinion that hopefully will not offend anyone or make them feel bad about themselves or miss their mommy.

I echo this statement. This bike makes me feel dirty inside.

What bars? They're sexy.

Them is the Deda Superleggera bars. Had the second ride today and felt myself starting to dial in a little. I don't know what it is exactly, but the combination of Campy shifters, bars, and frameset makes the easiest transition from hoods to drops then comfortable riding in the drops that I've ever experienced. Eye keed yew knot!

My poverty CAAD10. I switched wheels to Zipp 101s that I scored dirt cheap and added a 53/39 instead of the 50/34. I think I should be able to attain "hot" status now, but probably need white Zipp stickers to get there.

I live in Dallas and Austin has the most severe climbing I see aside from vacation to New Mexico, so I decided it was time to man up and get the 53/39. I'm still slow and weak though.

If you must do something with the stickers, just take them off. I don't know that it's worth going to the trouble putting new ones on, but I'd go with white if you did. It looks fine as it is though. Oh yeah, IMO. etc. etc. etc.
