Hot r Not

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

I realize it does not meet all the staging requirements I was just bored at work and snapped a couple to keep the bike pictures coming. Now that I've been on it for awhile I'm wanting to get the bars a little lower. Should I move a spacer or two up or swap the stem for something less than the stock +17?

Why spend money on another stem? Remove some spacers, it's free!

In all seriousness, that bike is hot, and I love the paint job.
Those rules don't apply in this thread that was the other thread but it's dead now thanks to a few bad apples that ruined it for everyone. But I agree, this bike is hot and would be even hotter with the steer tube cut down to the stem.

I love these rims. They are pretty light at 450ish grams, which is about the same as other 23mm width rims. The biggest thing about these rims is the wide profile. You can really feel the width in cornering. The worst thing about these rims is that it is pretty sad when the anodizing wears down on the braking track.

Yeah, I'm sure that's going to happen on mine soon too.

Why? Flipping the stem will get you lower and is generally more aesthetically pleasing than a stack of spacers above the stem.

Made a few updates. The staging is not good enough for the other thread, but it will do here.

@Fiery - The other thread is also shut down right now… It's sad when grown adults resort to name calling and pot shots over… bicycles?!

Anyway, like the bike, but not hot imo. Too many logos. I think there's a logo on every available tube except for the wheels. I don't care too much about the staging as I actually prefer a more interesting background like the one you've chosen. Bike just doesn't have enough oomph for me to rank as hot.
