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

The bike is for his Wife. Most women don't like to position themselves as low as men. Give her time to build a racing position if that is the way she chooses to go.

Holy crap you actually had your spokes powder coated red?

So bizzare to do that to a set of Aksiums but props for following through

If she´s happy thats way to do it! As stated; hot bike!
