I think this bike looks beautiful. Deep section wheels on the skinny tubing and SR groupset is a perfect blend of old and new.

How can you guys say it looked better before? There isn't even a full bike picture w/ the EEs! And there is something to be said about beauty in function over form.

Are you happy with it?

Not really tough, I just using normal kitchen stainless steel product to make it shine and protect the frame. Same here I like the EEs so much.

Once you ride the EE's you never go back!!
Beautiful rig...love XCR in every way.
Just sold my Alchemy stainless but it was a bittersweet parting.

:thumb up: I like it just as is wheels and all. The only thing that would make it better for me would be a straight bladed fork. It very much so reminds me of my Lynskey R320.

I thing it's better with EE. For me, they are one of the most beautiful breakset.
