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's not a helmet, its a bike stand.

Those are similar to the 3T ergonovas where the tops are egg-shaped/ovalized but Zipp does have the Vuka sprint road bar where the tops are as flat and aero as they can get.

I'd replace that bike stand helmet and yeah, you gotta fix those wrong-sided skewers.

Hell, might as well get it over with. After seeing ravenmore's Giant, I decided to go for the glossy black bar tape, but to be honest, I'm really not down with it on my bike, and I don't know why; maybe I'm just used to plain old Cinelli and Bontrager bar tape, or maybe the glossy color just looks a bit forced on my ride. I'm planning on Ultegra wheels later on this year, but so far, this is what I have:

I don't think you like it as much as ravenmore's because the overall appearance of his bike is set up more aggressive and IMO just looks better than yours (no offense intended).I think it looks ok on your bike as well. Just may take some getting used to.

Yeah, I know I've got a more relaxed bike, and honestly, I'm pretty happy with the way it's set up now: good enough to be happy, but not so good that I'm not setting aside money for a new bike.

Also, the black and white contrast used to be a good thing for me, but as I find myself switching out more white parts for black and more black parts for silver, the white is starting to get on my nerves. I'd really like to have something with less contrast, like a #333 gray or something.

I'm not a fan of the red accents on the paint job; however, the green, black and white look good. Overall, I thinks it's HOT.

When taping from the top down, the tape slides and becomes very ugly very quickly. Drive side is the WRONG side for the qr lever. Your bars look fine as-is.

No on the red Fuji simply because you used an iPhone5 when you could of used the money for more bike swag.

I say no on the Fuji because its simply not hot. Its an alright looking bike, nothing snazzy though.

I say no on the iPhone 5 simply because you could have gotten an S3 ;-) I kid I kid

You had to know you'd get called out for the aero bars, but otherwise a hot bike. Whats up w/ the wheels?
