But from a thread and rules perspective the staging really sucks because all you see here is the frame. The bars, seatpost, saddle, etc. get lost in the shrubbery background. What would make this bike really work would be to see it against a nice neutral background. Sometimes a bike brings out a nice nostalgic feeling in me, and this is one of those.

    Agreed. That picture was taken literally right after I finished building it...I have some pictures of it muddy, but they're all terrible iPhone photos.

    The sink or the bike?
    The bike is 15.3#s. The power meter on the rear wheel is a bit on the heavy side.

    Hot! Your bike is too light anyways and this would help balance out the weight of the power meter in the rear. It would offset the seriousness of your ride and you can ring it as you blast past folks instead calling "on your left"
