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

Blue decals & awkwardly tilted bars ruin it, otherwise it would be hot

I agree about the stickers, If I ordered it new i would have gone with flat black, but the stickers are clear coated over so I can't remove them.

The bars aren't tilted the front is turned a little to the left just looks a little off, When I get time I will shoot a better picture

Not.

I like the frame, wheels and group though. Bike has potential.

I agree it has potential... If you took all the components off of it and you hang it off the wall it would make a bad azz coat rack

Very nice acquisition. Now people can't give you Sh*t for your stem anymore I am a fan of the blue/Black. Didn't come with the wheels right? They are your other wheels? (interested in a total stable shot)

Well done. This picture embodies the term "Bike Rich"! I hope to one day achieve a similar level of bike speed weaponry supremacy. Very well done indeed.

BTW the pics I hoped to take today aren't going to happen. A minor setback occurred, but another project came together at the same time, that should make things even better. Probably going to be at least another week, but it should be worth it....

black bar tape, a traditional stem, and road pedals would go a long ways.
