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 want to see a picture of a human of healthy HWP on that bike. Even a pro.

Not a hater, just an editorial any way. The color and components do rock.

BTW, I like a good air cooled ride, however I prefer the six cylinder variety.

There are almost 7 billion people on the planet, do not doubt anything. Bodies come in all shapes and sizes. The owner could have slightly longer legs & arms with a shorter torso. The owner could be more flexible than you or I. Until you see how a body fits on the bike you, you can't really say anything on the fit....unless the person posting their bike is timtak (or what ever his name is).

you people are ridiculous. The bike shipped like that, I'd just picked it up and hadn't adjusted a thing.

besides, being judgmental about a bike's (fit) is mindless if you don't even know who is riding it. That's the attitude that has made me quit this site already two times, don't know why I keep coming back.

It's not worth getting too fussed about. That bike is hot, you're gonna get haters.

Just ride the crap out of it... I know you will, which makes it hotter.

hmmm... The cables look awfully perfect length for that bar height. Hope you didn't have to put all new cables on it when you raised em.

If your stem isn't slammed, it's the wrong size. Or you have problems.

Umm... His bike is a Specialized Venge knockoff. Everything you see, and think to be odd, well it's on the most popular aero frame, the Specialized Venge, the bike known to be the among the top 3 fastest frames. But since it's an aero bike, and most aero bikes share the same features and looks as others...

I'm not a fan because I'm not a fan of aero frames or the Venge. But there is nothing unusual about his bike. I don't get what you are seeing that makes you think it's more interesting than other bikes in this thread.

I think bmcphx's seatpost height makes his the most unusual looking bike in few pages of this thread I've read this week.
