If you have to ask, then you don't have the balls to be Flash Harry. Go for it.

Yup. No holds barred with an RCA. And stealth matches RCA paint job. :mrgreen:

Sometimes less is more - and I can not visualize, nor google a visual point of reference.

Egad. You are on a 45 day suspension from this forum.

Just my opinion, but aero bars seem like a weird choice for that frame.

I don't think that combo is gonna fly. Those bars really demand a frame with muscular lines. The RCA would work much much better with a skinny bar. A thin wrapped Rotundo is the best bet for the R-series IMHO.

Skinny-tubes frames will be better matched with shallower wheels and conventional cockpit (not bulky zipp-like stems and aero bars)

This is a titanium round-tube bike with what seems to be Aeronova bars and mid-depth carbon wheels. It is bling, but mostly because of the color.

I find it stunning!

Comparing a Cervelo to that is like comparing a baked potato to a nice polish vodka, not even in the same realm.....

I am not comparing anything (I thought that was clear in my post).

OP mentioned he did not find any image of a typical round tube bike with an Aeronova bar, and I thought those images could help.

The bikes are indeed completely different.
