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

That was taken the first time I put Italian drop bars on a bike. I was on test ridden then adjusted. I just popped a pic once It was off the stand.

The Storcks are a different profile with blue hubs. The Zipps on the Orca are Zed Techs 4 (same profile as 404) I had them done with super stiff carbon lay up and extra spoke count in the rear, blue stickers are a option on Zeds. I think the stork profile is 69 if i remember correctly. It is funny you say that though it is the Storck Zipps, I saw that made me want Zipps with blue decals.

^ HOT! :-D (the black Giant that is)

Oh and the purple one up there is hot as well. I've seen my dad's circa 1992 Trek 2300 in purple/carbon for the last 16 years. Purple has grown on me...

Interesting to note that all but 2 of the bikes sport Campagnolo or Sram.

I like them so far, but I've only put on 16mi with them since they just came in, I'll probably post a review in a couple of weeks once I get some miles on them

Started with a very not hot frame, but I like to think upgrading everything else has helped:
