Haha. Yeah. The seat and the rack are a necessity, unfortunately. Wife and I are trying for a second kid and 10-12 hours/week in a traditional saddle has me concerned at the moment. Need to find different fenders. They're legit hideous.

Everyone here is so kind. I would've flamed myself for posting my bike.

As for the fenders, something like Rivers posted earlier would be outstanding, if anyone knows where those came from:

Who makes these mudguards???
(I feel Rivers' bike is a definite Hot)

I've been waiting for my new wheels before posting it here. Now it needs a Sprint SL stem and SL-70 bars, that'll be next.

Thanks!! I'm really happy with this setup, both in performance and aesthetics. I'm going to hit the wheels with some polish, maybe this weekend, to give them more of a satin sheen. I'll post some before/afters, maybe in another thread.

Black and blue go great together. Hot.

Nothing about that bike is offensive, but nothing is really "Hot" either.

A good bike, but nothing exciting(either way).

I'd ride it.

Got the wheels last week to complete the build. Still tweaking cockpit layout a bit so I haven't finalized the steerer tube height. Love it so far.

This is one of the best looking, non-aero, non-carbon builds I've seen. IMO, perfectly done. HOT.

HOT. I too prefer classic drops and had always preferred 3T Rotundos. But ever since the 3T Tornovas came out years ago, I've stuck with them on my last several builds. The combination of the classic drops with semi-aero tops was the perfect combination.

Agreed, top tube is interesting, but def hot overall! Cockpit is perfect, that's how I want mine, more level. For anyone wondering about fit concerns, it's still within the range I was given from my Retul fitting, so it's not just aesthetic lol I like a good combination of form and function.

Thanks! I'm loving it. I think with the Sprint stem and SL-70 bars it will be perfect.

I have the Service Course SL stem now, the Sprint SL stem is -12* so should get the bars more level, plus it's more aero and looks great with the SL-70 bars.

I've owned both sets of handlebars(SL-70 Aero and SL70 Ergo), and prefer the Ergo bars by far. The Aero looks better, but in use I found that I preferred the Ergo.

I would also prefer the -17degree version of the SL Course stem, over the Sprint SL.

Nice. Steer tube/stem area could use some improving though.
