Great pictures. Do you have a studio for that or how do you do it?

Also Ridley + Zipp + Sram Red = nice. But that LTD version of Sram Red just looks wrong on your bike. It really ruins the overall look for me :(

Yes I have a small studio at home (my first time to use it) where the pics were taken, as for the sram yellow it was a worry when i said I was using it and everyone though it would not work But in the flesh they have all agreed it does work really well, the yellow blends in more in the flesh, and our club colours are red,white,yellow, and black, I have checked these pictures on another computer screen and the yellows look very strong, mine is a colour calibrated screen where the yellows look more subdued, But thanks for the coment on the pictures.

lucky wife! :thumbup:

I really like the idea of using sram red in yellow tdf edition and yellow brake pads. They make this bike a bit more interesting and adds character and if the team kit is in the same colors that's great.

Nice bike :thumbup:

Those pro pics are amazing. You did this in a studio? Or you photoshoped them?

Thanks for the comment's.

robertg, the weight is 15lb 2oz with the cage, zipp carbon clinchers, and the basic time iclic pedals.

SaXoB, not really a stuido just 2 flashheads and a lastolite hilite background, the only photo that was put through photoshop was the complete bike one and that was just to tidy foreground and background as i dont have enough lights to blow out the whites more ( I would have needed 6). Its the first time i have used the background and lights.

Flatline, Dont know what it rides like as the weather has been bad, Snow, Ice, and now the roads are really cut up.

Thanks again for the comment's on the photos....
