SPIES, Spies everywhere!!
Goldenboy, obviously you aren't up to speed with how even the most picayune oversight on my part will hound me if I post pics without making sure all is just right; cables just the right length and crossed just so (mine are too long but I don't care), chain should not dangle, every bolt the right tension, do the parts match, is there some color POP somewhere to distinguish the bike from the unwashed masses (showing that deep thought and meditation went into how it was put together), etc. etc.
Kidding of course. I did get this snap at the bike shop on my home though
Can I call that 21 lbs. even? If I took off the bottle cage it would have been. I'm not a weight-weenie otherwise it'd be lower, but damn that's light!
So the Mary bar you saw yesterday has been removed. I tried it on two rides and really wanted to like it but it wasn't working for me. My massive low-rise bar w/ Cane bar ends (28" wide in total!) is now gracing the bike and it feels so much nicer. The steerer tube still has not been cut although that is on the agenda for tonight (posting pics with an uncut steerer tube is a MAJOR faux pas). I have new bottle cages.
So close. Ok I'll post a couple of half shots....I am a d!ck. Remember the Mary bar is gone, the orange cage is gone....
