Just giving you a hard time. ;)

visors are usually removable.

deepakvrao YOU will be sad when you want more than one bottle of water and your tools are rattling away in that bottle cage ;)

Why not stick you tools in you jersey pockets?
I don't care what others think about my saddle bag.
I like having an extra bottle in case I get dehydrated.

Fizik Arionne VS. I like how flat it is front to back -- easy to change positions on.

Mos def! I'm trying to like the stock Alias on my bike hooked up to the trainer, thinking the cutout would be nice. I can deal with it but it doesn't fit like all my Ariones.

Nice purchase on the 7800's! IMO 7800 is Shimano's best looking group ever. Its simple, & classy looking.
I'm always on the lookout for 7800 groups, I currently have one in use, & one waiting to be used. :thumb:

Gorgeous. Love the THM brakes and Lightweight wheels, too.

Lightning Italian-threaded BB30 cups. With these I should (knock on wood) be able to install my new crank.

Sent my Z5 SLi frame back to the factory for a slightly custom re-paint job while I'm traveling a bit. This is just the artist sktech, we'll see how it turns out...apologies in advance to all the black plastic bike haters...

It'll be beautiful I'm sure, but it doesn't seem too different from your stock paint? Why the new coat?

gc3 11-14-13 04:06 PM

Wanted a change to be a little more custom looking. But didn't want to do anything too gaudy. It's actually a little lighter than this rendering. Saw a complete bike at the velosmith Facebook page

SpeshulEd 11-14-13 07:44 PM

Thats going to look nice!

That looks quite sharp, stealthy even, with that matte finish and low-contrast lettering. :thumb:

Stealth, but not as pure stealth as the stock Ghost Matte. I'm still trying to figure out exactly how much faster this paint job is going to make me...

robbyville 11-15-13 02:22 PM

It's puurty! Make you fast enough to out-sprint those of us who want that bike!

I've never seen that Velo Smith shop so that was fun

bianchi10 11-15-13 04:32 PM

Gonna look good Gc3!

Giordana FormaRed jersey to go with the bibs I already have. Tried it on and it feels fantastic, can't wait to try it on a ride this spring

Finally picked up a balaclava headliner for those cold commuting mornings. Found it at the local Sportsman's Warehouse.

Wont be long till Im stuck inside till April, so I bought a new Cycleops Powerbeam Pro. Now I can cycle to some video rides and feel the resistance change to the slope. Wont be quite as boring I think.
