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

Remove the saddlebag.

Others might comment on the stem having 5+cm of spacers, it being flipped up, the hoods up so high.
But the important thing is it's comfortable and you enjoy riding it.

That Time by Leej88 is about the hottest of the hot.
I can't tell if it's the bike of the photography. But it's hot.

I know man. I hate all those spacers. I'm waiting for the pro fit so I can change a bunch of things.

Don't get so agressive you can't stand riding it.
Take the bike outside, turn it so the drivetrain is facing outward, remove the saddlebag and you should have a good looking shot.

It was one of the beefs I had w/the bike shop. They did a crappy build and gave it to me w/even more spacers! And all the same size. I took it back and had them fix it, they took some off and put one on the top. I got tired of going back to them so it will do for now.

That saddle matches the bike perfectly, it would look perfect on my Giant.
Bonus points for clean white bartape.

Funny, I never cared much for ti bikes, but this thread is changing my opinion.
Nice match with the tape and tires.
Another hot ti bike!

Awesome merlin and whatever that first TI bike is. Not to take anything away from the Litespeed, but the other two just look so much cleaner. I think maybe if you went with Yellow instead of red on the tape/saddle it would have changed my opinion, but either way, all three of them are great bikes and be rideble long after we're all gone. Nice rides guys, good to see this thread got brought back!
