    Nice ride, but that one bit of pink housing looks a little out of place.

    yeah, it's garish but it's required for our team. everybody's bike has to have pink shifter housing on the back!

    Ok, I can appreciate that. I'm longing for a dark blue metallic Rock Lobster with CK Mango headset and BB, so I'm cool with the different color thing. I thought maybe you did a home job and ran out of housing.

    man, what kind of dropouts are those, have not seen them before, look like Breezers on steroids.

    cool bike, looks awesome, and while it might be required for your team, why the pink housing?

    What he said. I'd lose the 50t chainring, too. Unless you're not racing it. Just read on. Nevermind about the housing. I like the white bar tape and seat. Very "pro"

    we have pink in our team colors and nothing sabotages a cool paint job like unnecessary pink!

    A silver cable hanger would be a nice touch. Very nice though.

    Wow, that Hawley Blog kicks the blog ass of all other medium size regional distributors, combined. You clearly were not educated in SC schools.
