I just loaded this into the Rich_W_9000™ Analyzer. Here's what the super computer is telling me.

* Rider has class and not mislead by FooFoo parts.
(A clear indicator is his choice of Elite Carbon Potatoes)

* Good positioning, Good spec. Could use a bit more drop.

* Old Skool record crank means he is ready for business.

However, the sphincter-boy-ometer recorded two error messages:

* Frame is clamped on top tube
* Basement workshop is a big mess.

LOL :lol:

Once again the truth is spoken from the RW analyzer-
Reset the algorithm to give him a break on the basement though- the boy is leading the group into the forest of pain. That has to factor in somehow.

Very nice bike. I ride a cheapo Pedal Force but if/when I were to spend on a big money frame it would be a Colnago C50 or EPS for sure. I love the looks and the geometry.

Well, the top tube is clamped since clamping the seat tube causes laquer damaging rotation - experiential advice there... a respray is lengthy & expensive.

Can do you a lateral anal sphincterotomy on the cheap if you like. Does wonders for the anally retentive! :wink:

Just noticing that your group had to be the thickest set of dudes I have ever seen on bikes at one time- no mountain goats in those photos. not a bad thing, just sayin'...

Hmmm, never thought about clamping the seat pin. I would still get the rotational problem though - but I will try it out, maybe clamp the seat pin in a rag.

As for the group photo... ever been to Belgium! That race is pan flat, not a climb in sight - all the heavy mob go there...
