    Your chain is too taut

    Valve caps missing

    Turn anti-gravity off

    Otherwise I dig it.

    The valve caps are intentionally removed to shave grams, obviously.

    You are right about the chain though. Vertical dropouts, what can ya do?

    The fork is poorly wrapped with non-adhesive duct tape to prevent scratches. The fork is from my 94 Specialized Allez and the color didn't match well and I didn't want to paint it or get it scratched up since it may eventually go back on the Allez.

    As for the dummy hoods; I actually use the right hand drop lever. Both it and the cross lever are routed to the front brake.

    Nope, just right handed. Makes more since if you think about it in terms of practicality. Leaves your left hand open for signaling and you are using your dominant hand for braking. There are a pretty large number of people who do this, many of whom post on BFSSFG.

    To be honest, I like both a lot!

    Only thing on the moto is the bar tape color. Get black!

    On the GT, pick a tire color. Don't go both blue and red.

    Both have character but if your going for "clean"

    Bah... there is no such thing as too many stickers. (This is decoupage).

    not that he cant ride without brakes, its that he chooses to for safety/backup/practical reasons. anyone can ride brakeless, but some people don't see the huge need to have the cool factor of brakeless.

    nice dura ace cranks.
