Chain is WAY too short, but I think the saddle is too far back!

Love the Campy square taper cranks though. :wink:

Beautiful bike......
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

Very nice pics! But that horizontal stem and stack of spacers look absolutely stupid.

Tikka, there is a special feature included for this, perhaps your Look might have it too?! If you pedal and push the paddle inside the left hand brake lever then chain pops up onto the big ring. Problem solved. :wink:

Shifter cables are routed improperly-
This board would be MUCH nicer if everybody would just chill out.

You are really weird.
I understand that you can like or dislike a bike's appearence, but he obviously took care of the details and the photos are objectively very well done (if you can do much better I would be very pleased to look at pictures of your bike).
He probably routed the cables that way for a reason, otherwise he'd have noticed that the cables are crossing under the downtube...

You can express your opinion of course, it just looks strange to me that someone posts some beautiful pictures and the only comment some people make are like "chain is too short." or "cables are routed wrong". :roll:

Why do we always criticize, can't we just love another guys build?

Like curry said, that is one of the few orca's I really like!

yea but when you are trying to show your bike off to people cos thats all people do on these forums then you have to get it perfect to look at. at the end of the day we cant ride each others machines so this is what it comes down too. shame imo although i also enjoy it but then i am slighlty :?
