Sorry - it's an Instagram shot, as are many of them. Besides, most are just quick iPhone shots for the moment. It's having another photoshoot soon anyway...

There's a running joke on our local forum when pictures in similar vein appear:
"What's the problem, dude, stiff knees? Can't you bend them a little?"
Really, BikeTart, no need for another photoshoot, just a few simple ordinary pictures from a proper perspective would do wonders!

+1. Preferably outdoors with natural lighting (and using a semi-decent camera) :D

I've been asked to take my bike along to the photo shoot - it's not just me being a tart!

This pic was shot in a narrow alleyway, hence the slightly poor angle. Sorry!

Took the Mad Fibers that are waiting to go on my new Baum out for a spin - awesome wheels.

A small portion of the rear wheel/tire is still cut off, but yes, better :D

Seriously, how about a shot like this showing everything so I can put your bike on my blog? :D

Currently trying to work out whether I can fit the EPS 'brain' (toaster) onto this to make The Switch...! :shock:

...but I'm also secretly hoping it won't fit because I'll get strung up by my man vegetables if I go ahead! :evil:

That's where the Di2 battery is at the moment, but I think the EPS brain will be too wide to fit there. Hoping to get my hands on a DTI unit soon to see what I can get away with.

With a modified bracket it might fit under the seat tube bottle cage which could work as I already have a hole there for the front mech cable, and it'd be a bit more hidden than below the down tube cage.

There's also potentially an option under the BB. As I say, I need to get my hands on a Campag DTI first.

The DTI has ALL lines requiring a large port, so you'll never be able to use the single FD port. You may be able to drill a larger (think 7-10mm) hole in the bottom of the BB shell, and then have a DTI mount brazed ahead of it, similar to Parlee and others.
