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

How much are those frames going for. I've heard the jokes but not the price. I would have no compunction giving that a respray with large metallic flakes in a can of blue that set off nicely against a Campagnolo Century Grey gruppo.

The slough of black and white colorways on new bikes lately is doing nothing for me. Less than a majestic Klein fade.

I might still get a white saddle. I won't go back to white bar tape its too much of a pain to clean. White rubber hoods are much easier to clean.

They are around $500 shipped. You can also get them without a clear coat. And I would agree that black and white is really overdone but it works with this frame.

Thanks and yup they are Neuvation r28 aero4s with all the stickers removed.

Its really smooth haha. I think the only way they could break is in a crash or if I hit them against something while carrying it in the house (no space in the garage due to my father's shop) but I am always super careful.

I'm envious of the build. I hope to have my own going here soon.

The bike is completely Campagnolo (complete means including the headset, bottle holders, seatpost clamp and seatpost) so a non-Campy seatpost would not do.
