Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

You rode this "to the store"? Seems like a job for a beach bike, not a super bike? That RD Cage is ridiculous.

New bike added to the stable. It’s a 2019 Cervélo R5 Disk in Team Sunweb colors. Bike is built with Dura Ace 9170 Di2 hydraulic, Enve 5.6 wheels, and Enve SES Aero cockpit. Comes in at 16.04-lbs. A bit heavier than what I hoped for.

Hot.

I'm glad to see that the penis stem looks less like a penis when it's installed.

Just completed my first build (ever). 1992 Colnago Master Olympic Art Decor, Campagnolo Record 11 (53-39, 11/28 Ultegra cassette), Reynolds AR58s with 25mm Vittoria Corsas. Will eventually go tubeless when these wear out. Was hoping 28mm would fit but 25mm is as large as I can go.

A nice bike, but there's nothing hot about it. 40+mm of headset spacers doesn't help the appearance any.

Let's see here. Sunweb Cervelo hot. Same for the Colnago. The Scott looks ok. I can't really judge the paint because of the crappy lighting. The artsy pic with the snakeskin molt effect looks goofy. Both the Colnago and Scott might look better with the Dark Conti gumwalls or black tires. The Cannondale doesn't stand out in an overcast pic. Show us some pics in bright light so it doesn't look dull.

If we go back a few pages, there is a Giant with a similar paint job. It has a solid red fork, however. It's amazing what the bit of white/black on this bike does for the overall balance and hotness of the paint. The Giant has "GIANT" in white letters, but it's not the same.

I'm confident enough in my experience with paint correction to not require your judgement of it, but here are a few pics for you nonetheless.

Just give us a standard pic in decent light like the Cervelo above and let the bike stand on it's own. Your pics look like you're trying to hide something like a crack in the frame. Too many shadows. That paint looks like it could be spectacular, but I can't tell without decent lighting.

lol, you sound like a very suspicious person, I'm simply trying something a little more original but I get that it's probably not everyone's cup 'o tea. I'll unfortunately have to wait for the sun to shine to appease you.

Honestly I would have purchased the TCR if it came in the SL version like other parts of the world. The TCR above is my buddies.

Pretty hot but think it would be better with blackwall tires and the black seatpost clashes with the steerer/stem.

Blackwall tires maybe, but the black seatpost and chrome stem follow/continue the frame color scheme perfectly.
For a modern build on a classic steel frame, this is HOT. Especially the color scheme.

I agree mostly, but I honestly think a polished silver seat post would be the thing. I first thought that a black stem, but I agree that the silver does follow the frame and fork. Still pretty darn hot.
