UPDATE! 8) OK so it's not as black as it was but I think I'm liking the look of it better.

New Overall View.

ZERO G Ti's INSTALLED! Thanks Ted!

New Toy! S725X Tour Edition! (Still trying to figure it all out :oops: ) Edit....almost forgot my new Deda Newton Bars.

New Silver Fizik Bar Tape (first time to wrap the bars myself believe it or not). Replaced Decals on wheels with Silver to complete the look.

After I did all that my wife said I needed more silver on it. So I guess I'm going to have to get a new Fizik Arione silver saddle. It's all her fault. :D

Looks good! Now it just needs a little color to spice it up!

J/K
This board would be MUCH nicer if everybody would just chill out.

Not too sure about the silver bar tape, but I love the look of the rest of it.

Only on the bar tape! :roll: I like it on the wheels :D I think it's 'cos it looks too plasticky and in your face (IMO). I might like it better, when it's been ridden a bit and has started to look worn?

Time Ul Teams would be perfect pedals for this beauty. Blade the tiny red bits off and they'd be perfection.
Updated: Racing again! Thought this was unlikely! Eventually, I may even have a decent race!
Edit: 2015: darn near won the best South Island series (got second in age
-group)..woo hoo Racy Theremery is back!!

Doc - A stealth bike like that doesn't need any colour so would have black bartape as well. Also, tilt that saddle up a bit.

Really nice looking bike.

Looking very well. I actually thought the yellow Swissstops were a bit grabby but I rather have that verses not stopping very well.
RESIDENT GRUMPY OLD MAN.
