Hi, this logo counting is all good fun, but remember, they are just paint and decals. It was more fun counting logos when pantographing was the rage -- logos machined into almost every component on your bike. Advertising plus weight reduction, what could be better?

I haven't decided if the monkey will do his normal job, or heat-gun some logos.

Remember when you would argue with your friends that you were only as fast as the amount of stripes you had on your shoes…ie.. more stripes=faster than you..

I think Aaron has us all with 25, and to think I sold that bike for a measly 16 logos…the weak sauce is strong with the new BH

My 10-year-old is hung up on which Nike Elite socks he wants to wear. The kid saves money like crazy, so we let him spend some of it on $12 socks. He swears they make him faster, and he prefers the ones with more details in the stripes, for obvious reasons. Nike is marketing brilliance, getting kids to freak out over socks that cost $0.25 to make.

There's three including the headtube "badge" sticker. Even if I removed them the external butting is a dead give-away! Going to be at Red Trolley? I'm racing the 4s so say hi if you see me!

Nice build. Looks stealth.

How you liking the X100? It did a nice job on this one.

I love the X100. It replaced a 5D with a bunch of L lenses. Now I only carry the X100 and it takes awesome shots. F2.0 is great, but it was too bright, even with the ND filter it maxed the shutter speed today.

Just put a dp on an Allez Race Frame. Won't be in until April (? Probably because of the fork recall). What was your final weight or are you not done with the build? I am planning on using SRAM Red and probably Ksyrium Elite S Wheels.

Sweet. I guess the 5D 1/8000 would have been handy, but hardly worth the cost, size, and weight, depending on your goals. I'm lugging around a 1D most of the time, and it's big... but no other way to get some of the shots I need to get

Anyway, nice shot, nice bike.

I got lucky and Specialized had just gotten in a few frames. Current weight is 7.17kg/15.8lb. Trying to get the bike to 6.81kg/15.0lb. Other than a new seatpost, it's going to take some weight weenie stuff to get there with the 303 Firecrests.

I guess if the money is burning a hole in your pocket... but that is not the frame of a small guy, and for crit racing with an already respectable bike weight... well let's just say that the new X100S has a 1/4000 shutter for probably less money than the 0.8 lb. (selling the x100)

Nice! I'll be getting one around April to replace the 2011 version I have now. Mine will be somewhat heavier, though, due to wheels - OPs with PT rear hub and Ultegra front.
