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

The Service Course CSL Zipp bars fit the bill. I paid wholesale for those.
no worries brotha! The zipp service course csl's were what i was going to get at first, looks great and really light. I wanted the vuka sprints but couldn't tell if I would like them or not and no store had them in stock for me to look at them first hadn. Didn't want to drop the money on them and then have to pay a restocking fee. Oh well, I'm super happy with my superlogic's

I didn't mention anything about your old looking zipp decals or your tire labels being off, so you pointing out that mine being off has nothing to do with what i said. My stem conical spacer is not taller than your stack, sorry. My spacer is 25mm. you have what appears to be a 10mm conical spacer and (hard to see but from what I can tell) 5 5mm spacers which puts you at a 35mm stack vs my 25mm. You can dislike my bike all you like because this thread is all about personal opinion, but I'll bet you that if our bikes were up for vote I would get 9 out of 10 people that liked mine over yours. just saying

What are your reasons for not liking ritchey parts? To light for your liking?
This thread isn't for everyone.

Giant OCR C-3. Just got the Planet X carbon clinchers and have about 50 miles on them so far. I have the 205 gram Planet X brakes as well to be installed in a few days.

Not on the OCR. Even with a half decent picture there is a lot that needs to be fixed.

Thanks, this was a $400 full carbon frame Craigs List find over the summer. Rich guy in Raleigh didn't care one bit and the bike is close to new condition. Added some Lizard Skin bar tape (great stuff) the Selle saddle, and the wheels and 23c tires for Christmas. Gone over 1000 miles since June. Love it!

This gets a hot vote from me, and I am not a huge fan of the look of Giant bikes. Well done!

Turn it around and take an appropriate photo and it's got potential.

It's a VERY nice bike but I don't see it as hot. Reasons being that I don't care for the green tires, the mis-matched cages, and the white bar/stem combo.

Couple things for me make it a "not". It's a nice bike, but something doesn't do it for me, even setting aside my general bias against pinarellos.

Not digging the white integrated bar/stem. In black, it may have pulled it off, but the white draws too much attention to it.

Mismatched cages takes a penalty, as well as the green tires.

The bar angle seems a little off. Seems like the stem of the bar/stem combo doesn't have enough negative rise for the head angle of the bike. Maybe on a bigger bike with a steeper HTA it would look/work better.

Nice bike, but I would advise making home maintenance a priority as that garage door frame looks like it is in bad need of repair.

Hope the critics aren't too tough on this one. No chain, valve stems aren't aligned. I wanted a couple shots with the Enves before they find their way to its new home/owner.

Specialized sure makes a mean bike if that's all stock. It even pulls off the two tone bar tape.

Hot.

Tires get a pass for being green as they are the Pave tires. IMHO the only tire where color is acceptable.

Overall not in love with the color or general wavy design of Pina.

Cmon man, this is the internet, where everyone drives a Ferrari F50 and has a supermodel for a girlfriend. I'd ride that Pinn with pink/ purple polka dot tires and be proud.
