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

thanks guys...and I agree - the DA crank does nothing for the bike aesthetically. I might swap the stem soon as I'm not as low as I'd like. The ritchey is a -6, and I just bought a -8 so I'll test it out.

here's another shot...lined up the wheels.

That bright red square logo being slightly offset from the valve stem, and not in the same relative position on both wheels, drives me really crazy for some reason. But that's not something you can change, unless it's a stick or vinyl that's easy to peel off. And that's pretty much the most awkward looking gear combo to leave the chain positioned on for a pic, that one you can do something about.

Holy logo. Is that a Fuji? Redo the photo in front of a garage door to tune down the saturation. Looks like a nice bike but a bit over donw with the photshop.

Thanks. Here it is cropped, and cali alexa, the wheels definitely line up- it's just the angle of the shot.

Also, the gears happen to have been like that, and I honestly didn't even think about lining that up. I just made sure to get the crank in the right spot, but I'll adjust the gears next time.



here's my cross bike.

Hot bike, not Hot picture.

Small front ring
pump on top tube
cut that stem
mis matched tires
tires aren't lined up
should have taken bottles out for the picture
should have taken a level picture
should have taken a better picture
should have take picture at more level angle


again, its a hot bike, but picture doesn't do it justice. just because you are out riding, doesn't mean most of the "rules" dont still apply

I see nothing wrong with that Noah Pro. Personally, its one of the best aero framesets to date.

It's a nice frameset, but IMO everything else is just wrong.

Those wheels just take a lot away from that frameset. A frame like that requires a minimum of carbon 50's.
