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

This thread is about good looking bikes. IMO yours is anything but. Nice bike, but hard to look at.

Valve stems don't line up with tire labels.

Seatpost collar needs to go on a diet.

Phone/GPS case needs to be black.

Crank lined up at 3:00 position.

Bars need to be rotated up a half a smidge and the levers moved down a smidge.

Right front handlebar top looks like it has about half a pound of gel under it.

I would get a stem with some rise and remove some spacers.

All in good fun

If you're gonna go to the trouble to picture your bike, put that crank exactly at 3:00

And your skewers are at crazy random positions. I prefer both levers to be oriented horizontally back for aeroness, but alignment with fork blade or seat and chainstays is permissible.

Rear brake cable housing too long as well.

Your tire labels are all messed up. On the front, you have the label that has the yellow part of the logo oriented with the valve, but on the rear, the yellow logo is opposite your value stem.

Crit bikes should only have one water bottle cage.

OK, I had to work really hard to come up with these. And I almost thought your saddle wasn't level, but will let that one slide. Great background for that shot, too.

Hahahahahahahahahah!!!!!!!! You wish you owned it! My vortex is the best looking bike in this thread and you can stick your worthless incorrect opinion in this gutter of a thread where it belongs!!!!

On a serious note the cranks and brakes are ultegra 6800 so they match. Not sure why you think they don’t match perhaps it’s the lighting or you need to get your eyes checked....because your clearly wrong about my beautiful 6/4 Ti Vortex!(added more fake drama here not serious).

It's the PERFECT machine for dropping kitted out retired 50 year olds like they're standing still while you're anywhere between 60 and 85 pounds overweight!

This is the Piuma from Marinoni made with Columbus Spirit tubes that came stock with the bike but built with an 44mm headtube and with the Columbus FEL fork. I spend two hours at Marinoni on the fitting bike to have a frame that fit me perfectly. I choose the color, the custom oversize headtube, the sloping of the top tube, Handbuilt in Montréal.

Handsome bike, but the distortion in the photo is horrific!

Just a beautiful bike built to ride.* The contrast is a nice touch.* It looks very well thought out, and Marinoni is probably the best value in North America for a custom.

Not the newest bike out of the showroom 7900 group with 6800 crank, temporary wired computer, mtb pedals but she and I get the occasional top 10 strava segment together. Maiden voyage with the new wheels once I get my latex tubes and valve extenders. Photo angle makes the bars look a bit funky.

That thing is as hot as any crabon bike in this thread, which quite frankly, isn't difficult to pull off. For one thing his saddle is level.

Hot-like. This is a style that makes for some really hot bikes in my book. Not sure what's preventing this one from being one of them, though. I try not to be a brand or component snob, but maybe the wired computer and run-of-the-mill shimanoness and GP4Kness have more of an effect than I realize.

Thats true, a "deal' that is hard to beat for less than 2000$CAD for a custom frameset (geometry + paint).

I have a set of tanwall vittoria corsa g+ tires that I am considering putting on the rims but waiting for my tubes and valve extenders to show up. The saddle looks awful perched up there, feels about the same, and the bars and brifters need to be adjusted a bit. I would consider this bike a butterface...everything but her face, or rather above the top tube.

It looks like a mount for a saddle bag.

Those wheels are a PITA to true

Missed that. I was referring to the red thingy.

I can imagine they are.
