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

Looks good. I'll give it a Hot with a few notes.

The cages are too bright. I don't like the crankset. The hoods are ugly. Your steerer tube is killing it, but you knew that.

black cages, rotate the bars up a little bit, cut the steerer and I'd call it hot. I can get over the red hoods. The wheels are super deep, do you live in FL?

Definitely a HOT bike. Nice back drop, but wrong time of day for this shot. We need a better pic!

Imo...the tires actually work with the stripe on the saddle. Cut the steerer tube...looks like a photo slam.

Thanks. I'm still debating whether to go with white or dark decals on the next set of wheels. Both wheelsets I'm considering have that option but both have the decals under the clearcoat.

Whoosh, I see you're in RVA as well, any chance you were at the Milestone ride yesterday? I saw a bike that looked just like yours mounted on the back of a car as I was pulling in to unload. Great ride.

I see, well someone here in Richmond must agree with the SS/Boyd combo, then! Now that I think about it, the bike I saw might have had the green SRAM Red group, but otherwise identical to the pic.

Picture is not good. Want to see them though because from what I can see they may have some potential!
