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

Just got around to installing a more matching saddle and tape.....I like it
I gave up on the white Hudz as I just could not get them clean enough to my liking.

Sweet Teschner. Please remove the pump and stick it in a jersey pocket.

Get red Hudz, then. They will match your saddle well.

Just get a proper frame pump and be done with it.

Don't carry a pump that big in a jersey pocket on my group ride, please.

And CO2... I think we've
EDIT: By the way, that bike is hot sex. You don't need a more aggressive stem or anything else. These people (myself included) just say "flip it" because they can't have your dope bike.

Before today's long ride, I had to skip over 3 bikes before I found one confident enough to face the light of day. Stop the madness! I beseech you.
Okay, that was funny.

Improperly installed and or adjusted components suck and I am not a SRAM fanboy.

Finished this build for a good friend about a month ago, and turned the keys over to him 2 weeks ago after shaking it down for ~150 miles.

A NOS Chesini X-UNO frameset fished out of eBay, outfitted with new Campy Centaur 10 speed group:
