It's ok I guess.

Show us something custom, not just 'off the shelf' parts. :wink:

Amazing bike. But is that saddle to bar drop for real?

Hmmmm...

Headtube-to toptube dimensions - check;
Drop - check,
Stem length - check;
Bar shape - check;
Campagnolo EPS - check;
Saddle - check;
Real PowerMeter - check;
Wheels - check;

Uhhh, you should be using a nice set of FMBs and you might be putting Speedplay on there, so, Speedplay sucks.

How's that?

I am kind of ashamed to put my used TIME RXS Carbon Ti pedals on there. They seem antiquated but I love them.

Somebody put a lunch box underneath the down tube... :frightened:

But cool bike in many other ways, though.

No electric specific frame?

I'd like to think that a $20K dollar bike would at least have a frame built for the components being used.

Guess you can't have it all on such a tight budget ;-j

I actually appreciate that the frame is built for any drivetrain. At least from a retailer point of view it makes it a lot easier to have one frame that can do both Di2 and EPS and the other 3 mechanical versions. But if you need to have that battery inside the frame then I will leave it up to you to figure that one out.

I may still be partial to the De Rosa but that is a very trick build. I would agree on the electronic specific frame but it doesn't seem to deter much. Hopefully you had some kind of grommet for the entry to the frame though?

I think you need to tear that srm head unit apart and customize the color a bit though ;)

How do you like the ride compared to the other bikes you have posted here?

thanks for sharing

Seeing how the bike pictured hasn't yet had pedals attached I'd be of the mindset that the ISP length right now is more about getting some well deserved pictures and less about what the ISP will ultimatelly be cut to.

But for consideration of seat to h-bar drop, consider this recent Pro Tour example...... :D

All you're missing is an "inspiration" picture on the stem and you should be good to go.
