    Or maybe an orange crank arms. Or maybe this. I do agree that there's just something not right about that crank.

    Ooh, that praxis ring you posted would look sweet.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Looks great man! I wouldn't change a thing....for now. I have the same philosophy as you and "Campag". As much as I want to be happy with the outcome of mine(just finished painting it today) there are things I would still like to do to change it up a bit. I would have to resonate what everyone else is saying though, it looks awesome. Congrats on finishing it. I'm gonna try and to post a thread with mine soon. Hoping to have it all together Wednesday.

    Even your black cadence sensor looks good on there.

    I can appreciate the effort that went into this but I am really not a fan of the outcome. To each his own, great work nonetheless!

    Very nice. Really.

    It takes a lot to put one.s art on display.

    As with many things in life, there is not one right answer.

    Ride safe and enjoy.

    Me personally if I had your talent Adrian which I don't...I would airbrush the S-work logo on the downtube like Specialized does on their monochromatic S-works bikes which is real stealthy but classy. Simply add just a hint of black to the current paint color for the graphic for a slight shade difference and hint of contrast. Would add a dash of character I believe.
    Well done.
    PS: If I get some time, I may photoshop my suggestion for you to have a look.

    I've been experimenting with some new paint to go with the wheel decals, I won't put s-works since the frame is not. I thought of maybe putting RBX on the downtube. Here's what it looks like right now...

    that subtle white striping on the top tube is new. "shut up legs" a nice touch. maybe some striping on the chainring for relief. it's perfect.
    By the time you're experienced enough to get something germane out of a test ride, you won't need a test ride.
