Actually, your english is quite good! :thumbup:
Cmon, post the whole black bike!!!!! ;)

You are right about the color - BLACK rocks!!

Edit: one question Rumsas... how can you ride the classic bars in the drops? Particularly while sprinting and braking....
I absolutely love the look of the shape, but cannot get comfortable with it. I see the FSA bars are more "open" compred to Deda newton shallow.

Looking good. I hope you've gone to the trouble of removing the graphics from the FSA parts?

Thanks :D About the classic bend bars, i place my hands on the flat part of the bar while sprinting and climbing, like photo.Image that is perfect for me. And like Mr. Magnus Backstedt (winner of Paris Roubaix) once said ''place your brake levers so high on the handlebar, that you can't reach them in a sprint, thats the only way to be fast enough, steer you way out of trouble'' :lol:

Enve or 3t ltd would work well imo, I'd also ditch the most graphics from the wheels.

Thanks! I will stay with my bars and thinking how good the shallow ones look ;)

Yeah, remowe the logos from the wheels. At least the bigger ones.

I would take the "MOST Lightweight" stickers off and leave the stripes and the small Lightweight logo sticker on.

Otherwise, looks very good :thumbup:

Damn, it looks good! :beerchug:

Personally, I would consider to remowe the logos off the seatpost, stem and the big ones from the wheels.
What about black tape and all black sadlle?

BTW, what model are those ITM bars and where did you get them?


After riding, talkin, writing to some people and seeing this pics, I want a smaller frame now... :?

Magnificent bike! Is that a Deda shallow or deep drop handlebar?
And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.
