    so you have a tapered steerer tube in a non tapered headtube? that could be the reason you have that weird gap at the bottom.
    you need a normal, non-tapered steerer tube fork.

    haha ok nevermind looks like that horse has been beaten dead already

    aesthetically im not super into spoke cards, but at least the "gas sucks" one ties into the black of the components, the yellow one seems like an outlier
    oh and the saddle seems very far forward. looks just a bit awkward to me...if you need to move up i would suggest a zero-setback seatpost with a more central saddle position.

    but nit picking aside i really like it for what it is.

    I feel like the brake and levers should be silver, but I like the black rims so whatever.

    That frame takes a 26.0 seatpost, I was lucky enough to find that one I have and the piece of **** is seized in the frame. And the frame is a bit too small for me, one I'll get around buying a new frame, I never really cared about it, since I had the All-City which was my main ride. But now I'll have to look into a new frame soon.

That larger diameter on the fork is what is exposed. Again shocked there is no simple remedy for this

    wait its too small? usually people have saddles all the way forward like that to compensate for a frame too big...
    maybe try pushing the saddle back a touch on the rails... that would give you some length top tube wise...

    That saddle position looks fine for a Turbo.

    oh k...yah do not have experience with turbos. just looked a little bit far forward.
    but still coincides with "what you dont like about my bike"
    it dosn't look that bad at all really. just nit picking.
    all in all i do really like the bike

    Valve caps, fork, bar tape, the fact that you totaled it.

    Chains too tight but I also don't like the drops but that's a personal preference.

    Yeah, that fork was quite the boat anchor. All aluminum, a whopping 740g. On the upside I've got insurance $$

    On the now totaled bike, why was the bar tape so darn shiny?
    First he makes hangovers, and now half women half sharks that won't even sleep with me. Thanks for nothing, God!

    That tape is: Fizik Microtex Glossy 'spensive stuff, looks vaguely like patten leather. It's thicker than the regular Microtex
