    The reds do not match. And the no matching dummy brake lever. This should be on the track too

    FWIW I keep giving bull horns a try but I just cant ever find myself really comfortable riding with them. My Syntace Stratos have been the best so far but still not 100% agreeable with my hands.

    I unfortunately do not own a nice camera, the colors actually match quite well it's just the camera/flash and the fact that that the frame is a lot more glossy than the wheels. I haven't had any issues in the street with this, but I would love to try it out on the track.

    the allure of some deep carbon rims is very strong, but I'm saving money for a road bike to try and get a bit more serious. I have a TT bar setup just haven't got around to putting it on, there is a time trial around where I live with a fixed gear category I would love to try out once it starts back up again.

    Your saddle setback is wack.
    You need hoods on your levers.
    You need silver wheels.

    Woah, that saddle is way back there.
    and
    Stem too high.
    Bars are rotated forward a bit.
    Needs silver cable housing.

    (I think black wheels should stay, though. Well actually silver hubs would be nice, but black rims are good.)

    waiting on bullhorns, i used a level for the bars its the picture plus i dont like riding on the tops of hoods and that saddle is set back a bit far ill try sliding it forward a bit. its funny you mention the cable housing as it originally had white housing but was cracked and old.
