Congrats! I like the understated esthetic, with the low-gloss paint. Like the colors, too.

Maybe your wife and dogs will be more excited if you show the drive side.

Nice bike, I like the green.

Congrats! New bike day is the best. My wife too could care less about bike anything. I feel the darkness.

Drive side

Moved to the living room. Updated pic of drive side. So now my wife is the only one not happy. Damn polar vortex is really putting a damper on my biking. It's got all tiagra except for the bottom bracket and crank set. Anyone have experience with the FSA gossamer mega exo crankset or bottom bracket? What would it compare to shimano wise? Seems like it would be inline with the rest of the tiagra groupset.

If you are going to keep that fender on the front you need a matching one for the rear.

I get Flat for a non-gloss finish, sure checks out. I also get Pine because it is kind of a pine like color but WHO IS JACK? I have been undecided about that color ever since we got some in stock but the more I look at it, the more I grow to like it. The Renegades at least in the steel versions are excellent bikes and I may add an Escapade to my collection as I keep wanting to do it.

I hung a FSA Gossamer 30/46 sub compact on my All Tiagra equipped Specialized Dolce Elite and it works great. ( Also pulled a link from the chain). And I like the "here I come!" yellow fender.
