    haha damn you guys really pay attention to details ;-) Responses are in order of comments :

    The "lack of aero" position is because the bike is fitted for long distance triathlons (180km/110miles on the bike - no stops).

    The set back is simply because I was being cheap... you caught me ;-) Got a great deal on the k-force set but it came with the setback seatpost. Don't really mind it since I still get the right fitting with the seat placed really forward.

    Hey Raedyn, I've been building up this bike for 2 years now and I just finished it this week. Thanks for the vote its appreciated !

    Dan333SP : impressive ! didn't think for a second that someone would notice. Exactly right, 11-32. My playground includes some ridiculous hill. What can I say, I'm a climber ;-) But this used to be a 10 speed bike so upgrading to 11 speed the 32 cassette is simply a bonus. Turns out I wouldn't go back.

    New pics will come when I get proper bottle cages, another spacer for lowering the stem the rest of the way, and take the decals off the wheels.
    I got the same bike. I'll have to hotten it up a little first, but I'll post a pic soon.

    I disagree with all the criticism of the Look. Different is better, even to be sought after. And the overall impression is mean and aggressive in my opinion.

    Wheel decals removed, new bottle cages, staging with some actual sunlight.

    I liked the old cages, but I love it with the new ones. All that remains is to crop the steerer.

    I'm torn on cutting the steerer. I like the idea of having the ability to raise the bars for endurance rides; I have a charity century coming up and I'd like to be able to adjust the fit accordingly.

    Leaving up to 10mm of spacers above the stem would not look too bad and would give you some room for adjustments. For really long rides you can always flip the stem up. It's up to you, of course, but I think having that much steerer tube sticking above the stem not only looks bad, but is not too safe either.

    Just finished installing new gruppo (full 6700), only thing missing from this photo is the 3T Dorico Team seatpost (currently on the way)

    For comparison, what it looked like before: http://i.imgur.com/PkNBbbN.jpg

    I prefer it with the under-saddle noodle bowl from the linked 'before' picture.
