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

That's a nice deal for those bars. I got the Wing pro compact last year which is basically the same bar minus the oval shape on the tops. I paid full MSRP for mine

is there anyway to dim the brightness of the white? It is hard to see the bike past under the billboard signs.

I love s/s cages. A little retro, they don't spit out bottles and they're cheap.

I shortened the rear cable housing, thanks for pointing that out redlude97. so the polished aluminum stem is growing on me, because almost everyone else has a black one and a precious few have white. The bike is about .5 lb heavier than my pedalforce, so complete it's just at 15lb. the extra weight is in the frame. in particular the chainstays, seattube/isp junction and head tube, which is where i wanted a bit of extra stiffness.

Gorgeous bike! I might be the odd duck, but I like the silver stem it doesn't really clash with the over all look and it gives the bike a very unique character you often don't see in this subforum.
