IN THE PROCESS OF UPGRADING MY BIKE. STILL WAITING ON THE CARBON FIBER SEAT POST AND I HAVE FSA GOSSAMER CRANK SET. THE OVERSIZED AIR PUMP WILL BE GOING NEXT. NO BIGGY RIGHT NOW AS IT IS OUT OF THE WAY. PLAN ON GETTING SOME NEW TIRES AND SWAPING PEDALS ALSO. OPEN FOR SUGGESTIONS SO HIT ME UP. JUST ORDERED A PROFILE DESIGN COCKPIT BUT NOT SURE IF I SHOULD USE IT ON THIS BIKE. ITS THE COBRA WING WITH AIR STRYKE TRI BARS AND BRAKE LEVERS. WHOLE SETUP IS CARBON FIBER. I AM BUILDING A SOFTRIDE CLASSIC TT QUALIFIER AND MAY USE ON THAT BIKE. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Plain look?

Nice ride but I would clean it up a bit to make it look more plain. Bar tape, cables, pedals, groupset... If you go black, it would be a killer. The frame and wheelset are really asking for it. :)

black out!!!

That's what I been thinking. It started out one way but as I got more into it I like the clean look more. The new cobra wing cockpit will look killer on this bike. I should be getting the new seat post today and gonna add a black saddle. I will post more pics as I make more changes. Hey!! Anybody seen my money:)

FRONT END RAKE

THIS BIKE ORIGINALLY HAD THE DD 15 HEADSHOK FORKS WHICH I REMOVED. TOOK THIS PHOTO TO SHOW THE NEW ANGLE ON MY BIKE WITH THE DAMPENING SYSTEM OUT OF PLAY. IF YOU LOOK AT THE LINES ON MY GARAGE DOOR YOU CAN SEE THE PLANE AND GET THE ANGLE. RIDES GREAT.

With the front end lowered that much the pedal could hit the floor!

I'm ridin 170mm cranks and I don't have any clearance issues. When riding the bike the drop isn't noticeable. This bike is very comfortable. What I was thinking about doing was going to a shorter crank because the new seat post will be a lot longer. I'm going to change my ride height. Not sure how this will affect my forward position. In doing so I feel the shorter crank will help both with any issues associated with clearance and new seat height.
