    Thanks for the critique. I will be replacing the crankset with a black version and the bar tape with black tape this week. I do really like everything to match.

    You'd be replacing the wrong pieces. No to the 80's/Miami Vice blue. It's a bike not a Trapper Keeper!

    Staging isn't great, but it is what it is. It's a cross bike, but I do all of my road riding on it too.

    Exactly....an improperly staged bike. You read the rules and ignored them. There's a thread for this type of staging. This is not the place for receiving a participation award. Report back after proper staging ...

    Unless you have a doctor's note for your carpal tunnel, I have to say the clip on aeros make it a not for me.

    It's a CX bike... it belongs in the grass next to a tree and maybe a pint of something good.

    Hot.

    Clip on or not, that bike is a hard Not for me.

    Reasons I feel this way (since this secondary HRN is to include helpful ideas):

    Aero clip ons (for purpose or not, they don't belong on a bike being submitted for aesthetic judgement)
    SMP saddles are generally hideous to look at, regardless how comfortable they may be.
    Very tall stack height
    Very tall stack height PLUS a high degree stem
    Dislike that the head tube is that high above the top tube
    Dont like the red saddle or red bar tape. Even though there is red on the frame, I dont feel the colored parts compliment the frame. I think the color is over powering
    Hoods are very high on your bars (though it sounds like it is for a reason, which I understand)
    Dont like the red Cages
    Not a fan of the shape of those bars

    I really want to like it, but as mentioned earlier, I find the FSA graphics to not flow well with the rest of the bike. Also not a fan of that bar tape

    I never thought I'd vote a Schwinn w down tube shifters Hot, but that one is. As long as you do something about those blue bits, as they aren't nearly as classy as the rest. The bike looks great, and I realize you want some color but that blue is pretty garish. But it's still Hot even with that. I'd have to agree with the Facepalm comment.

    It's very close to hot. Keep the current crankset and chainring, get a seatpost that matches the stem, and a set of ti cages. I almost think the bar tape could be kept. Depends on what it all looks like after you do as I say. Then it would be smokin. When you're done, stage it properly, and come on back.

    I like it too, but have to be the +4 or whatever we're up to on the ano blue parts being facepalm. For that to work the stem and other bits would have to match, but then it would be matching ugly. She's a classic, regular alloy will do. To keep it shiny I'd get a Dura-ace crank of the same era - 7700 - that would look great with the FD, shifters, stem and proper alloy seatpost. Oh and if you do repost, put the chain on the big dog, line up the tire labels with the valve stems and put those stems at 6 o'clock. But really it's a nice bike and I like the rims with that frame.

    Ok some niggles: The brakes. They're red, but not matching red, anodized. Me no like. Anodized colored alu rarely works IMO for this reason. Note the derision the blue seatpost and cages are receiving on the Schwinn prologue of the same era as your steed. I think they would look better in the silver alloy it came with. If you went black, I could go with that, matching the seatpost, stem and fork. The cages. I'm trying to put down my retrogrouch biases and be ok with these. I see where you're going with the black, but me no like plastic cages. But that's a quick fix, slap on some silver (or black) alloy cages!

    She looks in great shape and well loved. She looks fast, do you get her out for a hot lap now and then? Tall gearing, you have no choice but to speed!
