I agree. My plan is to get the Rotor crankset, when it becomes a little more available. For now, only CC carries it and the local LBS' don't know much about them.

that shimano cranset looks fine. don't choke on the kool aid.

^^ I agree what's wrong with ultegra?

Here's my baby 2010 Felt AR4. Zipp 303 just went on sale 30% off so I've ordered a pair, but I'll be waiting until spring to use them.

That's nice.
I like the furniture and the ship in the background too.

I don't know how wide those spokes are. Mavic's may work, or if it's really wide, try one meant for Fulcrum/Campagnolo. The Fulcrum Racing Zero and Racing 1 spokes are nearly 1cm wide (I'm exaggerating a bit). The Fulcrum wheelsets normally come with magnets and you may have to find an orphaned magnet. I lucked out and a shop had one laying around to sell me. Mavic wouldn't have worked in my case.

Oh, and if you folks out there are using the Garmin 705's as well, mind if I ask you how you mount the wheel magnets on Aero spokes?

it (gray) doesn't match the color scheme of red, white and black. no koolaid drinker here, campi, whatever. just a black crank would look better. that's what this superficial thread is about...

moots is hot. black hoods would look better though.

Moots looks sweet:thumb:

What skewers are those?

It's hot but I feel like I've just seen every billboard in Vegas.

I also think it would look even hotter with the wheels in stealth mode. Taking the stickers off my Reynolds soon because I just can't handle all the white lettering on my wheels.

That's the plan.... hoping the sticker residue isn't a pain to remove. Think of the grams taken off the wheels!:rolleyes::lol:

Use a razor to scrape, and then nail polish remover to get any residual stuff off.

If I could remove the labels on the wheels, I would. But Easton wheel logos are painted on and cleared over. There's no way, other than sanding them down, to remove the things. I'm stuck with billboard wheels. I wish the Edge fork I got had the smaller Edge logo near the crown, but as it was a barely used Edge 1.0 fork, I couldn't be too picky. Anyway, if I get a good tax refund this year, it'll go toward a set of Edge wheels.

Razor, loose all of the red and replace with mainly black but possibly some hints of white/blue/gray and we're in business. Has some good potential.

In the future a carbon crank with a similar weave pattern (think sram force) would like super hot too.



Moots is hot. I agree that black hoods and decal free wheels would look smokin'.

BMC is hot.

KCNC -- you can buy them all day on eBay for under $75. Super light and work great.

Not to change the subject, but what bike stand are you using in picture #'s 2 & 3?

leej88 11-03-10 07:44 PM

^^ to be honest, I don't know. Picked them up from a lbs and all it says on the stand is Bike Attitude....
