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 don't have the best track record of linking images hosted elsewhere on this forum. But, if this works... here's a slightly higher-res version:

steerer needs cutting
I don't care for the crank either - the matte looking color, and too much solid and not enough see-through.
frame is very nice though. normal wheels are awesome too, thank you for not having ugly ass deep aero wheels.

Yeah, but how often do you pay attention to your speed? Other than a quick glance on occasion, I hardly even pay attention.

I've never noticed lag being an issue.

Yikes! Beyond me why anyone would post their own bike in this thread and ask others to tell them whether it looks good or not. Do YOU like it?

Totally has the potential to be hot if built up right



A local mechanic was selling this exact frameset & colorway, built up with Chorus & Rovals a few months back. Considered it at the time, but didn't pull the trigger. Seriously regretting it now.

Another local bought it and added it to his collection. I wish he posted here becauae he has one of the niccest collections in Ga id think. Including a Mclaren Venge, Nibali Tarmac, Colnago C60, Colnago C59 and countless others.

Btw your bike is hot. I like that is has white tape over the black,

Thanks man! And BTW, I just realized I know you. Looked back through the thread and recognized your bikes... I'm the guy that lives in your in-laws' neighborhood.

Yup I knew who you were. I was trying to see if you'd figure it out.

The guy lives in Downtown Atlanta so barely rides around here. He was briefly in our Team. Cool guy but you won't see him up here.

A few questions about these up-sweep on the flat portion carbon handlebars in picture..

Do they just allow lower placement of the stem without steertube spacers?

Any performance, additional comfort or just extra weight vs the regular carbon handlebars?

Well that's really cool!

I really do love your new TCR... It was pretty neat seeing the whole team on them at last Saturday's ride. It was like an invasion of the Giants, lol. You guys are an awesome group and such great ambassadors for the local scene.

And there's a special place in my heart for your Venge ViAS, what a lust-worthy bike!

What are 32 deep wheels? It appears the rims are already 30-40mm deep...

When I still used the magnet, I'd put it on the spoke that was hidden behind the chainstay when the valve was at 6 o'clock, that way it was never in the photo.
