    Go ahead and start a new thread with you own rules if you like. This thread will go back to what it was originally intended to be.

    So this thread doesn't get derailed any further, please take the moderation discussion to PMs. You can contact me, Siu Blue Wind, or the head administrator, Tom Stormcrowe. Thanks.

    Which is fine, Gus, I am a Social Scientist by training, after all. It becomes a comparative behavioral experiment that provides me with new data, so go for it.......seriously. I operate on scientific method and never get butthurt if new data tells me something is wrong with prior conclusions. Prove me right orprove me wrong, either way, I gain new knowledge, so it's a win/win scenario.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    It's hot. The only thing I would tweak would be to rotate the bar up just a little bit, so that the drops were parallel to the top tube or nearly so... I like how that looks and find in comfy as well.

    Sure has been a while...
    Upgrades include dura-ace di2 (7970 because 11 speed junior cassettes are pretty uncommon), planet-x cnc brakes (after reading Bianchi's review why the hell wouldn't you buy them...), white and black arione r3, hed 10* stem. I'll probably be stuck with the ultegra crank for a while, since I've got a stages on the other side.

    If you don't like the way someone's bike looks, you can say so, but saying a bike is ugly because it has a water bottle or a saddle bag is lame. Stop being lame.

    It took all of, what, six pages(?) of this nearly 800 page thread to get negative.

    What're we talking about when we say "the way it used to be"?

    We don't see all that many Bianchis or Boyd wheels bikes so this is fresh and sure, because of the very small frame size, the down tube is making what looks like a reverse bend from what would seem more logical to be straight or bend the other way. But still, this is a nice bike and the black and teal color scheme is nice.

    If you decide on this Deda, they ain't cheap but Ribble sells them the cheapest.
