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

I don't think he saw your original post, he thinks I posted my bike and stated it was hot. Your stickers are fine, not too much, not to little. I say find a red seat collar to bring out the red in the headset.

I agree that my pic is a bit blurry - I took a pic of the first day I brought it back home with my wife's iPhone.

One question, should I take the HED wheel stickers off? The rest of the bike does not have any stickers because all the logos are etched. Also, what do you think about using a silver or red hub with silver spokes instead (next wheel build).

+1, people are gong a bit overboard with the take all stickers off. Not about being pretentious. Also, this plan of having no decals on wheels gets a little annoying when you have 4 sets sitting around and you are trying to figure out what's what.

If you were talking about my wheels, thank you for your suggestion. It was noted and disregarded. I ordered those decals. The white ones are a bit much.

Here's another photo. Look away.

How did you all manage to miss the guy asking if he should take off his logo decals? I was answering him.

And since it sounds like you wanted to hear it, I do like your wheels (even with the logos).

1) you didn't use the quote function
2) the pic of the Enves was more recent
3) above all, you used an absolute ("never") in your statement, which would have necessarily included the Enves.

After four months of waiting, I finally got my S5. When I get new wheels (when I can afford it, Soul C5.0), I'll post again. This is as it came from the bike store, except the ISM Adamo seat. Slightly blurred from leveling the pic. Advice to anyone wanting to buy an S5 Team Ultegra: Upgrade the crankset. Just adjusting the derailleurs and tooling around on a flat road, I had it in the highest gear...dammit. It's a 56 w/ a -6° 100mm stem, btw.

I'm with LC. Anything bigger than a 54cm looks atrocious in an S5. That thing is freezing.

I actually don't care for it in the pic, but it is much better in person... and will look better with the right wheels.

It's not pretty to look at, but have you ever used and Adamo? I haven't had any numbness whatsoever since switching. I have one on my Madone (which I maybe should post here... it's a bit sexier).

Thanks for the suggestion.

The black seat cooler came with the bike.

Believe it or not, I have been looking for a red seat collar.

So far, I have been able to find (google), only salsa quick release type collars and I wasn't too crazy about them.

Any suggestions or sources?

Got some new pics. 2012 FD installed, and I did some tuning on the RD. RD is now down to 119g, but still plenty of room to go lighter. Also got a sweet detail pic of the stealth logo on the Berk post combo.

that's perfection right there

i need to work on my S5, its at 16.2 and it needs to go on a diet! i'm sure the 25lb i just lost will help 9 pounds to go, but i'll still be too fat for this sport at 160lb!
