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

Does this count? Sorry for the crappy non driveside pic, and it has been further updated since this picture, but it is:
1989/90/91 (not sure) Giant Cadex 980c
Running new 105 compact crank
Hollowtech ii replacement BB
Ultegra fd/rd/10 speed cassette running 9 speeds on 126mm OLD
105 STI's to replace d/t shifters
Same wheels, same brakes (not pads)
Its my 3xWeek 26mile round trip commuter, and use it for local races. Will also be using it for Ride100 in London this summer! I love it...

Bought this a few weeks ago, need to trim the cables of course, but a pretty sweet ride so far.

Great bike. Swapped brakes to 5800, cranks to 5800 52/36. Ritchey bars, 3T stem. Love this thing.

I saw a rider on the W&OD trail in Leesburg, VA with a Specialized Tarmac in similar color combo as you. Only, he had Zipp wheels with decals in the same blue that matched the handle bars, saddle and water bottle cages as you. Had to be the sharpest looking bike I've seen in person. I like yours alot too!

Here's my new GIANT TCR SLR Aluxx (2014) - a warranty replacement frame for my anodised TCR SL1 (2013) featured here before. With other wheels it weighs 16.9lbs.

Ima get me one of these! That frame, anyhow.
Besides the wheels, what other customizing did you do there?
Aren't the stock wheels' rims like 55mm (nice, but too much sail area for me)? I'm planning to go with wheels with smaller rims, too.
