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

Maybe instead of the ENVE's, you should have painted your house.

LOL

Nice bike

This bike is so light, nothing is needed to hold it upright.

Who says that's my house? (it's not)

You'd think a little artistic juxtaposition would be welcomed around here to break up the monotony...

This thread used to be good...<sigh>

That Moots ties together the muted duo-tone scheme in basically the same way as almost every other one you see. The photo is also well done and you prefaced this one beautifully, "Another Moots, I know...." We all know. As far as the "ole F5" and the irrelevant Cannondale, I hardly noticed them either. But not in the pleasantly commonplace way of the Moots.

I suggest a compress to bring it to the surface and a round of antibiotics along with this cream. (you have to draw out the bad element before it will heal)

You guys can't see it yet tho, because it's being custom built for me over at Alchemy..

Almost every single bike Chippos posted, I've built myself, demo'd+ reviewed, including the dozens of much nicer/expensive bikes in our store..

P.s

The 80mm stem is needed because this bike is actually too big for me. I did how ever ride over 100km on this set up the day I shot this photo, and comfort wise I had almost no issue.

The thing that is visually jarring here is the wheel labels.

Very well done Lords. We have quite the pile of detectives who can sniff out any variance or similarities between pictures. Can't wait to see the new bike for you.

Awesome, I've liked just about every build he's posted over on WW, and can understand the 80mm stem as I run a 90 on my rig

Then again I prefer metal frames over carbon functionally and aesthetically so I may be biased.

The new ride.



Columbus xCr stainless steel, fillet brazed.



Enve 2.0 fork
SRAM Force
3T stem, Ergonova bars, seatpost
Fizik Arione saddle
Look Keo Max
Mavic Open Pro (28/32) with DT Aerolites on Novatec hubs.
8.2kg with pedals and cages.


The angled stonework in Pic1 makes the TT slope look odd and the saddle seem tilted too far forward. It does slope a bit, but here's another pic so you get a different view.
