What exactly is a “Dentist Bike”? I happen to be a dentist by profession and I also happen to have a Dogma 65.1 Think 2, only in Naked Carbon. Funny.

How many millimeters of spacers do you use? @fogman

@fogman It's not a coincidence - it's fate that brought you two together. I am just an imposter :)

5hit, this is hilarious. Kinda walked into that. And tonytourist piled on. :P

Fogman, don't worry. Typically it's just guys with less money resenting guys with more money (dentists, lawyer, doctors), who can afford high end race bikes but who didn't exactly grow up racing such bikes. These well off professionals tend to gravitate toward particular prestigious brands. This gets compounded when said prestigious bikes are set up like a beach cruiser. Imaking20's joke is subtle but a good one - captured the whole story.

I am loving this bike. The ride quality is fantastic - probably one of (if not the) most comfortable carbon bike I've ridden. Handling is also very good - but can't say at this point if it's any better than the Wilier - which is pretty outstanding in its own right. It's been ~2 years on the one-bike rule and I've got to say I'm quite pleased with the new two-bike arrangement!

Still waiting for a new bottom bracket so I can throw on the THM crank. I've got some tires to glue on a new set of wheels - should have pics to share of that tomorrow.

Received parts for one of two completely unnecessary changes I've got planned to drop some weight. FSA SL headset bearings!

A swing and a miss! Glued up some Ksyrium Pro Carbons and just not feeling it. I'm surprised that the gumwalls don't do more for me. One more wheelset to try now...

Not terrible but yeah, not the best look. Gumwalls can be tricky on a white bike. The thickness of the tubes on the Pinarello would seem to call for a deeper wheel but it should be possible to get a decent look with a shallow set. It may also be greyish tone and the highly visible weave of the rims that throw things off a bit. Those exact same wheels look fantastic on my matt black Parlee with either gum walls or plain black tires. It' s weird how this works sometimes, and sometimes not.

It's the bike equivalent of this:

I can't really disagree with you. Gumwalls on my white C60 were great... But this combo just isn't right. Even if the wheels themselves do look fantastic in person!

The Wilier will basically live with deep wheels on so I don't really intend to ever have more than 35mm of wheel on the Dogma (unless i get a charity deal on some Meilensteins). Time to poke around and see what I can find that will look better though!

Frustrating also as those Mavic's are nice wheels. I have been super impressed with them. They just feel so fast and solid for a relatively shallow, light wheel. But, if your buying tubular wheels and would rather not spend a fortune, there are many great second hand deals to be had as the carbon wheel industry continues to shift ever more toward clincher and tubeless. Ebay is awash with good condition tubular at decent prices - a good set of Bora's shouldn't be a problem. And there is LightBicycle. I wouldn't hesitate to have them build exactly what you want. You could get them without logos and the finish of your choice - IMO matt unidirectional would be the classiest look.

That’s not a Dentist Bike. You need to put some Campagnolo Bora Ultras or Lightweight Meilensteins on that bike for it to become a real “Dentist Bike”.

I am really, really enjoying this bike. The level of comfort that comes with the responsiveness and handling is what really makes the ride stand out for me. Hard to not gush over it!

I've decided it's going to stick around for awhile and so it got circumsised. Also going to experiment with traditional drops - which I've never tried before. Let's see if my neck can live with the 14cm of drop at the hoods...
