hello all just wanted to show u some new pics of my bike. nothing major and the pics are not top quality but will do for now.

changed the bar tape to Fizik white , tune quickrelease, sanded my seatpost to remove the stickers , colored the rails of the tune speedneedle black and modified my bottle cages again and I polished them(matches my polished cranks, wheels and stem face :P )

current weight verified on my alpine scale is 15.76 lbs. not too bad considering heavy wheels and crank. could easily be in the top 13 sub 14 lbs but I like it that way for now and need money for other things :P

hope you enjoy. don't look at the mess :lol:
ciao

thanks buddy and I forgot to say I took out the only zertz remaining in the back seat stays :lol: the weight was 20 grams for 2 zerts.

Serves no purpose IMHO. Specialized pure gimmick? maybe. don't detect any more vibrations without it. bike is smooth yet you feel connected to the road.

yep rides pretty nice. can't complain. The wheels are Mavic ksyrium SL 2003 with all stickers removed and polished by hand machined sections.

Seriously, did you chrome those cranks, cause they are bling. Nice ride, I can't stand Specalized but this a fine example, good job.

I see you also snowboard, you should try tele instead :lol: . PLus, I see you like Italian sports cars. I got passed by a couple of the "red rockets" today on my ride. I think it was an F55 (it was coming toward me, fast) and for sure and Enzo (same direction).

haha thanks guys. I will take some pics from drive side and post them soon.

@Starnut: Looking where you live, doesn't surprise me you getting
passed by some red rockets. Happens to me sometimes over here. I see alot of 360 modena and the new f430.

by the way those cranks are polished. I don't like chrome.

I'm not a big fan of specialized either but this little sucker rides very well. I plan on getting rid of all the stickers during the winter for that black stealth look like felixor's cr1. That's if i get a new bike next year most likely a new ridley damocles or noah with custom paint.

Or else I plan on getting this frame repainted with my favorite motorsport paint sheme :wink:
