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

Also hot, but a black crankset would make it even more hot. Because of the red white, fsa k-force light or red black edition.

Can't go wrong with BH framesets; another great looking build. HOT, of course.

Agree, that has got to be the best looking Giant I've seen in my life.

For what? An aesthetic pic? They may already be spot on for his geometry and comfort. They look fine from here.

Where'd Ginsu go? That was funny.

Also, that RB-1 is one of nicest looking bikes from the 90's I have ever seen. Usually, I don't like newer grouppos on older bikes, but you made it work. Kudos.

Correct.

The bike is hot, and likely fits, but from an aesthetic standpoint (the basis of this thread) it would look better if the bars were rotated slightly. I'm not encouraging him to do it if it fits, it was my only suggestion for visual improvement. Comfort doesn't always = hot.
