    May be off target a bit, but what about the concept bike that Colnago did? I haven't found much on it but I do remember seeing something about this being used, about 3/4 down the page:

    The LBS wanted to check the bike out just in case there might be something that would be eligible for a warranty replacement. He said the seat post was banging around in the frame and ended up...

    For me, it depends on the bike. My main bike is black & white w/ orange accents, black bar tape. My backup bike is all blue with black tape. The third bike in the stable is red with white trim,...
  7. Poll: Which handlebar tape to use... black or matching accents on the bike?

    When you build a bike up, do you normally use a neutral color (black or white), try to match the frame's primary color or go for matching colored accents on the bike?

    Cale, I love the bike, don't get me wrong. Some of these noises are irritating. Some of my research has said some of what I'm experiencing could be signs of larger problems, as well as simple...

    It doesn't have the RS500. Its got a 5800 105 crank. Its definitely the seat post. I pulled a seat post off of another bike and swapped it out... dead quiet.

    navinsipe, are you talking about where the seat post connects to the seat? Do you have a photo? There are a few different styles of seat post that have been used on the Domane. This is mine.

    I've got the same (threaded version though) on my Schwinn 974. I like the idea of the Schwinn decals on the fork. Will have to look into it...

    It could be. It was late when I was working on this last night, normally when I'm in bed so I didn't want to pursue it any more for the night. The seat bolts were pretty tight. I've had issues with...

    I think we have our answer. I took the bike off the stand and sat it on the ground putting pressure on the seat. As it made contact with the ground... POP! I removed the seat post and clamp and took...

    Though possible, I doubt the seat post would wind up an anal probe or the equiv of something you'd see in the red room of 50 Shades of Gray... keep an eye on it and for other 'series' bikes if you...

    This bike has no internal cables. All of the guides seem tight. I'm going to remove the seat post and see what it does (standing up of course... sitting would be painful :/

    I'm on a witch hunt trying to figure out what the popping is and if its serious. I took it out for a test ride and noticed a lot of vibration on the non drive side crank arm. It wiggles and one bolt...

    The rim issue is fixed. Ran the wheel to the LBS (figured maybe 5 minutes with them would be cheaper than return shipping) and the cap on the non-drive side came unscrewed, allowing lateral movement...

    Issues with #1 happened before I put the Vuelta wheels on the bike. I've also swapped the wheels out before troubleshooting and it made no difference. I do agree that something on the Vuelta is...

    Ok, not quite ready but getting frustrated. I'm used to metal bikes and how they behave, not full on carbon fiber (lack of knowledge & experience may be part of the problem.) I bought a new 2015...
