    My Deda RHM02 looks just fine.

    I really don't like two-bolt stems and X2s have been known to be problematic for larger/heavier riders. Also, I think the X2 faceplate is butt-ugly.

    I agree that jp's Kazane needs a gold chain. Specifically a D-101.

    That would actually be cool. It would make the bell look less out of place. Maybe that will be my next purchase. I was thinking about getting a threaded fork and a black quill stem jus for looks. I can not find any other stems that I think would go better with the build and are black. As I also think the Thomson Elite looks a bit out of place, but i think it is one of the better options look wise and everything. Maybe I will try to find an old Salsa Stem actually.

    The logos on the tape wore off pretty quickly but that's an older pic. I'm rocking the Cinelli Caleido now:



    You don't take acetone to a Nitto logo. Ever.

    The rest of the specs can be found on my PedalRoom if anyone cares.

    Really digging that tape. It's going on the kilo when my microtex wears out. Good call.
    side note, have any pics of it applied in white?

    functionally I would put road bars on with a brake (personal preference), but from an aesthetic standpoint there isn't anything I don't like about it.

    I'm really digging the WC colors coming through the holes in the tape and the (hard anodized?) rims.

    They may look like track drops in the pics but Nitto M176 are road bars.

    Yeah, those are hard anodized TB14s.

    (Sorry for the ****ty quality pic - its for your good anyway, does a good job hiding the dirt and scratches )

    I'm re-qouting my post because scumbag Scrod posted his beautiful above-reproach ride so you could all suck it off for a page immediately afterwards and it buried mine.

    Yeah they're ultra's - getting replaced this spring but I haven't had any issues with them.

    Tapes going to match the saddle when I get bullhorns soon - I was just seeing how I liked drops(Spoiler alert:not very much).

    Thanks though.

    Saddles comfy, will match my bullhorns when I switch. I honestly like the retro straps/platforms - very comfortable with a big variety of shoes. I probably would have went cages/dualstraps if my bike was a little classier looking though.

    I don't have a valve cap on either of my wheels - must be the quality of the picture?

    Also... JK I don't want my bike made fun of anymore - go back to telling scrod he totally isn't fat

    Thanks for the review.
    I thought it was correct since my tire treads were faced the right direction, I switched it over to the non drive side.
    I am getting a new rear wheel for this bike, and switching the silver rims over to my steel bike.
    I changed my saddle angle a while ago also.
    This picture was taken before the seatpost was adjusted after switching to clipless pedals !
    Can't do much about the chode stem though haha.
