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

Now, I'm not crazy about the bar shape in the drops and it wouldn't hurt to debadge your stem and get black or charcoal shifters, but I vote HOT yes, mainly because of all the awesome logos.

Levers look like they are mounted too low and the bars are rotated up.

Should be placed a bit higher and rotate the bar back down.



Love the "crabon fibber".

I think there's a possibility that your bike is much better but it looks like your photography is getting worse each year… ;-) Sorry, you just can't really see the details in the second photo. Post a better lit photo and we'll be able to judge much better.

What's with the censoring? Did you spell Contador with a "u"?

You are crosschained which is pulling that rear derailleur's arm to the max. It's no biggie, it just looks a little odd. The bike is hot though.

Love the "crabon fibber".
I had my LBS reconfigure my hoods and bars tonight. The mechanic stayed late and did it for a ride home. I feel bad for cyclist that don't have good relations with their LBS.

I feel bad for cyclists who can't set up their cockpit themself.
