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

You put the seat at the height your legs dictate, same with fore/aft. You don't adjust saddle height for drop nor reach.

Those System 30's are nice. Any feedback on them? Always a fan of the Williams cycling stuff.

I know what you're doing there. Take a hot bike and see if you can make crap out of it.

I like it but it seems something's missing...
Blue cables maybe?
Some sort of something blue on seat/bars?
Blue skewers would look good.

IMO, its not a matter of something missing. Its a matter of it already being overdone. The blue tires make it look tacky. a bike that is by all means sexy but the way it stands in this picture is as a not for me.

I think I agree with this.... The bike is already very busy as it is.... I think the color just adds to the mess of what's going on.... I think it will soon go back to a bit more stealthier mode.

Oh and I do like the Williams 30s very much, I'm going to try something new though very soon.

I was also asked about the blue stripe, that is pin stripe tape, and will also be coming off ;-)

How difficult is it to remove some of the name logos? Cannondale is huge and no need for three versions of it per side.

I'd like to see that bike with black tires but leave the blue pinstripe on. I like the idea of a little accent. maybe if the tape was thinner it would be a little more subtle?

Yea sadly this is the raw carbon frame and I don't think I can get any of the logos off... If I could I certainly would.
