    I don't mind the blue tape (it is the complementary color to orange, after all) and the website logos get a pass seeing as it's his website (and his stuff is shipped freaky fast).

    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.
    Okay, my first post in this thread. Let me see if I understand the "rules":

    Colnago = HOT, but need to fix the crank angle and lose the space above the stem, your valves are not at 6 o'clock (in this picture they are, but weren't in the first), and having a computer on top of the stem is apparently gauche. How'd I do? But still, it's a Colnago, so again, HOT!

    In all seriousness, that bike is hot, and I love the paint job.

    Just got back from South Lake Shore Country Club (round trip 40 miles) with my Cinelli and it is super for a 20 year old bike!

    We test a lot of rims and other components. If you look closely the rims are mismatched and are actually from two different carbon factories - same story for the hubs. To keep everything on the DL we brand every rim/part with our logo (web address) which saves me from answering a lot of questions I don't want to answer.

    The colours are our team colours.

    I realize it does not meet all the staging requirements I was just bored at work and snapped a couple to keep the bike pictures coming. Now that I've been on it for awhile I'm wanting to get the bars a little lower. Should I move a spacer or two up or swap the stem for something less than the stock +17?

    Why spend money on another stem? Remove some spacers, it's free!

    Those rules don't apply in this thread that was the other thread but it's dead now thanks to a few bad apples that ruined it for everyone. But I agree, this bike is hot and would be even hotter with the steer tube cut down to the stem.

    I love these rims. They are pretty light at 450ish grams, which is about the same as other 23mm width rims. The biggest thing about these rims is the wide profile. You can really feel the width in cornering. The worst thing about these rims is that it is pretty sad when the anodizing wears down on the braking track.

    Yeah, I'm sure that's going to happen on mine soon too.

    Why? Flipping the stem will get you lower and is generally more aesthetically pleasing than a stack of spacers above the stem.
