Um, I think we're put off by your clearly superior photog skills! Well done.

Looks like a solid build that will treat you to years of faithful service (or at least until you tire of it!).

Yoeleo is a Chinese carbon brand... similar to Farsports and some of the other more popular Chinese brands, they seem to be interested in establishing themselves as a genuine brand providing quality carbon wheels and parts. I have 3 sets in total, 50mm, 60mm and 88mm, with well over 10,000 miles between the 3 sets. I did a review last year on the blog.

Nice build! I would have gone all black tires but we are all different. Crank arm should be lined up with the seat tube. :smartass:

I somewhat agree with you on the tires... For the last two years, I've run S-Works Turbos on this bike and they look great, all black. I got these tires last season, to run on my Allez for a road race that was the day after a TT and I wasn't going to have time to swap tires and tubes from my Venge set up over to the Allez. The skin walls looked better on the black/white/red Allez. I had these sitting off to the side, so I figured I'd give them a go as my street tires on the Venge. If I like them, I'll probably grab a set of the grey sidewall ones for the next go-round.

As for the crank arms, you're the first person I've ever say that and I'd argue that it is contrary to whatI've heard from everyone else. Photography bikes is funny... there are so many rules and they all seem to contrast one another. Some people say big ring up front, small ring in the back. Some people say "hide the valve stems" but if the person lines the valves stems up with the lettering on the tires, then you have the lettering ducked behind fork and chain and seat stays.
