    Lovely mun. Now sort those tyres out. One of the letters of Schwalbe or Ultremo should be opposite your valve!

    Lovely bike, but what's with the bar position??? If you need the hoods that low, just ditch some spacers under the stem and set the bars at the proper angle?

    Nice bike but my god, how are you even able to hold onto the hoods with the bars set like that...one of the most bizarre positions I've ever seen.....you must have some crazy non-human hands.

    Thanks,

    Bendertherobot: I hang my head in shame after seeing your Lemond there, textbook stuff!!

    Yes, after looking at the photo, the bars are going to need adjusted. I've yet to sit on the bike! Though I do like the bars flat on top and was able to get away with it on a the shimano setup (didn't need to worry about lining the hoods up with internal routing holes).
  • Hope you don't run that gear too often?

    And I reckon black bar tape would make it look very mean and stealthy 8)

    I've still to take this bike for a test ride but adjust the bar, a lot easier on the eye now!

    Anybody know the best way of touch up paint? The last picture shows why you should not stick a bike on a bike rack any old way!

    Bike porn. I want one. Anyone know the going rate for a kidney these days?

    Hope you've got some Time RXS shoes to match the colour scheme.

    I sure do. I owned them before I even bought the frame. The bike is built up around the shoes really :lol:

    I hear CRC are doing kidney trade-ins these days.

    Thank you. I'd gave it 5.5/10 personally :P

    I can safely say that its an absolute dream to ride, even with the 10 year old wheels this bike really goes! What does love feel like again?!!

    it could have been 5.5 but the wheel sensor is facing backwards.

    Rake you seem to negative about a lot of peoples steeds on here, have you posted your bike up here so we can all see how fantastic it must be?
    It’s the most beautiful sport in the world but it’s governed by ***ts who have turned it into a crock of ****.

    They came with the brakes (planet-x) but noticed you can buy something like them from wiggle -http://www.wiggle.co.uk/p/cycle/7/Kool_Stop_Dura_Ace~Ultegra~105_Pair_Of_Cartridge_Inserts/5300005952/[/code]

    I have to say I have found it to be the best saddle I've ever used. Previously I'd been using a Specialized Toupe ... absolutely hated it.

    I didn't notice any break in period either so maybe the Selle Italia SLR just isn't for you.
