That really is very nice. I like the white FSA bars. They really set it off.
Makes me want to rip the Record off the Mono-Q. I had not considered he rd and white frames before, but I will now.

Thanks guys, it is a great sense of satisfaction to be able to pick every part that goes on to my ride. Really happy I was able to put together a bike with much nicer gear than a generic Sempre Veloce for less than what one would cost off the shop floor.

Love the red cables too, nice to be able to turn something functional like cables into a feature. The FSA bars are very comfy to ride compared to 'ergo' bars and I am very glad I tried them. :D

Loving every ride of it! :mrgreen:

Lucky to make it to 38 posts before making that comment. What will you do in your spare time now that you have been banned from the Forum forever?

lucky we don't all have to have the same taste or lack thereof- depending on perspective.

Would Celeste still be a nice colour if it was giant or trek's company signature colour?

you mean like yeti?


frock yes!
