    non drive side

    I don't like the tire combo, tarck drops, and the pedals. I like the dirty wall and floor.

    Non Drive Side

    It's more fun when you take a photo of the other side of the bike.

    Ok, but believe me the other side looks exactly the same. Since its not a close up of the crankset, chain or rear wheel set-up ....

    I see your point but ...

    So if it's not a closeup, then the crankset and chain don't exist ? If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it does it make a sound ?

    Yeah, but wider curves give you less drag on the cable.

    Buying new fork and wheelset on friday. Got this felt carbon fork for $50 but the rake isn't what I want, and the wheels are just some beaters I threw on since my old wheels got ****ed up in a wreck.

    Don't apologize, different strokes for different folks. And I never really thought about the drag on the cable cause by the sharp angles, whatever works for you. I still like the bike overall.

    That's the big issue with bar ends and the S3X hub too, sometimes, just drag within the outers regardless of curves is an issue though strangely, not always - it's a suck it and see issue. I got around it buy using a downtube shifter and no outers at all.

    As for the bike, I can't say I'm a fan of the colours but she sure looks like a practical steed
    I had a good bike ... so I FIXED it

    Which bike?

    The original bike that Soo_fuego commented about cable routing : Hairnet's white steed or Nick The Beard's brown tired bike?

    Short stem, saddle angle, possibly the pedals (depends on the shoes you are wearing). Awesome bike though! Love the silver.

    Looks nice.

    I don't like the saddle angle, chain, and questionable tire choice.

    GP Attack/Force combo? What do you use this bike for?

    Saddle height/angle (if it were a touch lower you could level it out), zero-setback seatpost with a Brooks, single "fang" brake lever, ****ty half-link chain, dumb tires.

    The single brake lever looks kind of funny, and maybe the tires.
    Other than that, I think it's a pretty good looking bike.

    What's the point of having a second brake lever ?

    But you can't say that the single lever, mounted the way he has it, looks good.

    I think we all have (and use) the ability to zoom in..... so all the pics are close ups. It's a hot bike! And you seem to have an eye for photography (a great dirty wall in the background). Seems to me... there are threads here somewhere on how to photograph a bicycle.

    So, where else is he supposed to mount the break lever ?
