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

Really nice bike and build. Ti, Campy, Enve, etc.

maybe take a red magic permanent marker/paint to the yellow VP one plug on the bebop pedals to give it a tiny red accent?

wow... just wow...

EDIT:

I just wanted to add a picture of my bike to possibly have the first, and probably only, time two bikes that have bebop pedals have been presented sequentially, in this thread:

How do you like Bebop pedals? Was thinking of some for my cross bike.

Hot!!!
My only gripe is the color of the saddle bag, it's removable so "no points deducted".

If you gave this bike a "NOT", then you have to post your bike...It's a must!

I like alligator I-link cables as you can add/remove links at any time. Never tried Nokon though.

By the way, your bar will stay wrapped longer if you go in the other direction, from inside to outside as you wind up the bar. Practice the double figure-8 move around the control levers assiduously.

Cool, thanks for the info... was thinking that bag looked a lot like Rapha's tool bag, nice to see there is a similar alternative to the Rapha that is not made in China... and is cheaper!

The engraving on the seatstay bridge is ultracool!

^ basically

my friends company G.S. Astuto is a direct rep for a factory and the frames are basically open mold frames that he tweaked a little bit. The prices are really nice and it rides really well. Compared to a lot of the bikes we sell at the shop I work at its a really good value and perfect for me as a college student.
