    Very nice. You'll soon enough be chided for not taking the photo from the drive side. There's a chance that you have too many spacers under your stem for a carbon steerer and some manufacturers require a 5mm spacer above the stem.

    You already have all the bike you need. Don't listen to the people that say you need more because you will be sucked down a rabbit hole where spending $2000-$3000 wont get you a lighter bike or a better bike it will get you a bike with one more gear that weighs about the same. Here's my 8.7kg Trek 1500 that weighs about the same as an Emonda ALR today.

    Welcome.
    Looks good.
    Can you explain how you rebuilt your rear derailleur? Don't think I have heard anybody doing that on a modern groupset bike.

    Me personally? I would never clamp a frame on the top tube. You have some kind of goofy light or reflector on the seat post. Lose that and clamp on the post. Only a suggestion.

    Great tune bf. Just found my Alice in Chains greatest hits album in my Music folder. Pulling a couple into my Ipod. Cheers.

    I was wondering that too. Why would you? And what would you "rebuild"?

    Hello Roaster, and welcome to RBR!

    I will echo what 1500SLR and 11spd said, especially to NEVER, EVER clamp the top tube. Even if it's alloy or steel, the tubing is thin enough to damage it. OK if you are just resting it there, but for any clamping, ALWAYS use the seatpost.

    One of my favorite Alice in Chains songs! Were you expecting that from us?

    Second layer of bar tape under hoods makes too sharp of a turn and could be producing a smiley face in the front of bar.

    Welcome Roaster!

    Rebuilding is a relative term. I "rebuilt" (disassembled, cleaned, lubed) this one recently.

    Even though I am mechanically incline i am taken in your advice
    The bike is lightly clamped and balanced on stand
    The reason I rebuilt the rear derailleur the two pulleys and cage had play
    it would probably survive next summer just me
    So I opened the Shamino 105 making sure what goes where,I know it's spring loaded
    Once sh105 is apart repacked with grease changed main cage and new pulley wheels also chain (stretched)
    The pic is a camp rear derailleur I replaced R main cage and S pulley wheels on the sh 105
    First pic I did drop the bar down about a mth into my rides
    maybe I was in the drops two long making one side of my back sore
    that's why I lifted it up
    will give another shot

    Many an odd squeak in my fleet has been traced to a rear derailleur Jockey in need of a little attention. Most of us hate squeaks.

    or rattles
    or clicks
    or whumps
    or pops
    or clunks
    or hisses
    or rubs
    or hums
    or anything unbikelike…

    Sadly, I knocked my Kuota over this morning so I'll be checking it for all the above.

    Incorrect. Aluminum can bend and even crack.

    My point is frame tubing is very thin. After all, most riders want the lightest possible bikes, don't they? A seatpost is thicker and if you do damage something, which would you rather replace, a frame or a seatpost?

    I never said it couldn't. Any material "can". I said "not much concern".

    As the OP stated
    "The bike is lightly clamped and balanced on stand"

    My point is frame tubing is very thin. After all, most riders want the lightest possible bikes, don't they? A seatpost is thicker and if you do damage something, which would you rather replace, a frame or a seatpost?
    Most riders? I dunno. Lots of people are skeered of ultra light bikes cause they "fall apart just riding them".

    Sure, clamping on the top tube and pounding out a BB would be foolish. But throwing the bike in the stand by the top tube to clean it or tune a derailleur not a big deal. I have the same stand as the OP, I sometimes lightly clamp my bikes by the top tube... even carbon (I know... blasphemy ).

    Anyone who has ever "cracked", "torn" or "dented" an Alu frame would never, ever clamp any of the frame tubes in a stand, no matter how lightly clamped. Some of these tubes have the lateral strength of a Bud Light can. If you doubt me, check out this "tear" at the seat tube, BB junction.

    Shedding weight on your bike is a law of diminishing returns. Sure, a 19-20lb. road bike will be faster than a 30lb. clunky hybrid. But will you really notice the difference between an 18lb. road bike and a 16lb. road bike? Heck, your two water bottles weigh more than that! If you are a pro racer, it may make a difference, but then you would probably be getting your bikes for free.

    I also think the concept of rotating weight is way overblown. Reducing rotating weight (tires and rims) will make you feel faster because you will accellerate faster. But once up to speed, the momentum of heavier tires and rims will make it a wash.

    It's 'SHIMANO', not SHAMINO. Bike looks good.

    There wqs actually a knock off brand named Shamino on some cheap bikes. People buying a K-mart or Wal-Mart bike wouldn't spot the spelling difference. Not technically counterfeit since it's a different name.

    At least they put sham in the name... sounds like it would be iron clad in court!

    No.... regardless on a modern road bike the tubing in the top tube is generally less than a couple of millimeters thick. Same concern, you can dent the frame, which is even more of a concern on an aluminum bike with memory. You should never clamp a frame anywhere except on the seat post.

    The thickness of some tubing on alloy bikes is about the same as a can of Coca-Cola, its just highly tensile. I've gotten my aluminum bike down to almost 19lb on the dot. The idea that metal is heavier and thicker and stronger is some kind of ridiculous. Modern alluminium bikes aren't the square tubed monstrosity of the 1990s. They're made with the same milling technology as modern carbon fibre bikes.
