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

bianchi is correct, that is indeed a 6 degree stem, in the negative position. I did ride a -10 for a bit but i found that when i stood up to climb with my hands on the hoods, it didn't feel natural.

Gc3 I had a black crankset but because i am getting a stages power meter, I had to go with the ultegra.

yojim, what is the correct gear combo?

Not sure, but I'm guessing it was a chainring that did the saddle.


Back together.

Been there, done that!

How about matching tires?

I posted this a year or so ago, and it had Red cranks, with the grey colored chain ring. It was suggested to go black, so I figured I would get a pic with Quarg set-up, and some races under its belt. Little did I know!

Bike is still hot and awesome LAJ.

Did the saddle get attacked by a shark?... were you racing in a sharknado?

if you stay white saddle, I'd go white bar tape also. If you are gonna keep the black bar tape, I'd go black saddle.

Really, you have to ask? Well, since you introduced pink as an option....I'll suggest matching pink tape, pink saddle, and pink tires....

I'm 6'5" most mfg "XL" frames just don't cut it. I can get away with a 61cm on a cross or track bike but most of my road bikes are 62 or 63. The Stevens is a 62 and yes it is huge. 15.7lbs without silly wheels.

Thanks Herbie. I'm happy it survived.

I think I like it. The 1st Annual Sharknado Crit.
