Looks awesome! Very aggressive and lean for a 105 build. the only thing holding it back right off the hop are the cranks. (or at least the rings... make em black!)

This is a fake frame, right?

cool bike !! :D

perhaps i would recommend black chainrings and a smaller bar, i it looks very large compared to the small ( but great looking) frame size ;)

Looks good :)
As others have said, black chainrings would make it that much better.
Also what is with the bottle cage positioning on the seat tube?

I agree with everyone on the black rings, but I'd go a step further and just say get a new crank.

It's a Specialized Venge Comp 2013 chap not a fake :-)

Re the chainset this is next on my list of mods only had the bike a week so plenty left to do. The cage is there temporarily until I purchase x2 Elite custom race "stealth" cages.

Bars are stock and feel fine not sure they make it look any worse??

Any other mods you feel would make it look better please feel free to share... :-)

Great looking bike. If you are planning to upgrade I often see S Works crankset for a good price online.

What's the weed growing between the paving stones on the left, Stellaria media maybe? Needs some genetic modification to make it black.

Since you asked, aligning the valve stems and tire decals would look nice :)

That is some seriously anal detail not convinced it would actually make it look any better but hey it's all in the detail, was an absolute bitch to get the tyres on these wheels so might be on my to-do list when I'm seriously bored !
