    I like the pink, adds some life :)
    Like the custom cap too. Talking to a friend about him making a load for me (engineers workshop + loads of spare carbon from some Airbus wing bits)

    What are the details and specs if you don't mind?

    Just to save anyone clicking through

    Bike is a 2011Specialized sl3 expert Roubaix, started life as Blue And White, wheels are profile design semi altair 52s, Bars are aero bar and stem from Trigon, brand new full ultegra 11speed groupset with 11/28 and compact chainset, I've also brought a 36/52 for race days!! Kustomcapz head cap, before anyone says why didn't I put Dura Ace on well after researching into the new Ultegra I've saved £500 and gained a amazing groupset, he brakes are unreal and it's as light as the dura ace!! Thanks to Carbon Bike Solutions in Moira Furnace for painting the bike, I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but it's a head turner that's for sure!! Thanks for takin a look and please feel free to leave your comments.

    I'm not averse to the pink but the Rapha logos are a bit OTT in my opinion.....Specialized will probably have a field day suing you if they see it too :wink:

    The Rapha logo is only a sticker so can and will be removed arran77 as for specialized suing me?? Maybe Rapha but not Specialized as I've used their logo however I've had good feedback from Rapha on the bike!

    Thanks Vandiesel it was slammed and will be again, I had my other bikes stolen recently and I've been out of the saddle for a month so I'm slowly easing my back back into it!! More pics to follow soon :)

    Crikey there'll be some Rapha haters out there having conniption fits right now, smashing their hands to bloody pulps on their keyboards :lol::lol:

    That though, is seriously good. I love the way we modify our bikes and how they end up reflecting our personalities. I think your bike says a lot about you and you've created something special there...chapeau!

    Sorry to hear about your bike thefts, but I'm sure that you'll soon be smiling again riding this.

    Very cool....loving the pink !

    Despite my best efforts to dislike it I rather like it. I confess I don't have the courage to ride pink, but good for you. I presume that your gear somehow works with the bike's colour.

    Thanks tommo7567 lol!! All the Rapha haters will come to appreciate it I'm sure hehe, lovin the Titanium ride, gutted about my bikes going missing and no bloody insurance due to new home and madness of movin and forgetting to change the details over!!! But I've just built and finished my new training bike a Giant SCR which complements this bike, pics to follow shortly!! Thanks agin for the comments!!!

    samsbike yep all Rapha kit just tryin to locate some Giro Empire Ltd edition black and pink! But your right about the pink, it's funny as I've ridden it 4 times now and each time I've gone out on it, it's like a red flag to a bull with people want to race me on it!! I need to get seriously fit hahaha :)

    Spent the last few months considering a re paint of my tcr, think it needs to happen now after your current posts. I promise I'm not a copy cat the pink no matter how much I like it. May copy the Firefly multi colour for the forks and chain tube

    The giro's are great, should you find them in pink, I doubt you will be disappointed

    That's a bummer about the insurance, but it is good that you're getting things back together, and in some style by the looks of things too!

    I first saw my Ti on the Kinesis stand at the NEC bike show and it was instant 'manlove' :lol: , I then showed my wife the Enigma Elle and although she's no roadie, she quietly stood and gave it some adoring looks for a while....I'm guessing it would suit your tastes too.....http://www.enigmabikes.com/products/elle
