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

Do you find the need to adjust your saddle often? Once I get the saddle position set properly, it doesn't get touched.

It slides on the zipp tie very easily - that is the function. I do want to get rid of that and glue it. I am looking at a 3rd party bar end controller. Then that goes.

I love the lines of the Tarmac and the functional form.

You need to get that one built, so much potential hotness. Alternatively you could hang it on the wall with some mood lighting.

The First Sagan Venge frameset I have is hanging on the wall on top of my other bikes with some lighting on it

The other Sagan Venge is the new world champ colorway that came out recently. Waiting for it to come out to see if I pull the trigger. Would like to build the one I already have but the R9170 is not out yet and it doesn't seem to be coming any time soon

I thought you knew something about the timing of the new Sagan. Would really like to see one.

I expect you've see this one? The bar/stem is now on front of this bike https://www.bikeforums.net/19346875-post23770.html. This setup has cables, not Di2. Tarmac has too much seatpost for my liking. This bike has more carbon than that in the link and is flexier and heavier.

Yeah I was on the fence about that but it really isn't for looks, purely function. All of the alloy ones I've tried flex too much and it seemed like these overbuilt carbon stems (PRO/Ritchey/SRAM) had the best reputation. All of seem to look equally huge and obnoxious on my bike. Open to suggestions....

If there was only a way to remove that massive ZIPP logo...

Looks hot. Line up the tire logos with the valve stem. Also, I like the zipp stem.

I should say that this is the "before" shot. After some work and upgrades it looks like this now --->
