    For sure. Especially in a loud color. Though that one Matt posted is pretty sweet.

    I particularly like this one from Blacksmith Cycles, though the loud blue or orange paint jobs are great too (provided you have the legs to back it up.)

    oooh, and the FMP Pro series colored sidewalls... oooh.....

    Just fit, and geometry for the type of riding I do with my road bike.
    I have two cross bikes, so my main road ride need not have wider tire clearance, longer wheelbase etc.

    Does that mean you're not selling it? It's such a beautiful bike.

    Red is faster. You can't fight science.

    Aren't you happy the steel one did not sell?
    I wish the Ti one was my size...
    The body wants what the body wants- I wish all loves worked as easily.

    And Time pedals!

    You're right, you're not giving up any functionality.......if anything you may have alittle better performance in that they don't flex like the skeletons do under braking pressure, therefore they provide
    a more solid feel.

    I rode a Fat City Monster Fat in "Pepto Pink" for years before deciding that I needed a frame that fit me better. In 2010, I sold the bike to NYC Velo in New York and ordered a custom Steel Deluxe from them painted to match the Monster Fat. I understand that this color is known as "Eric Roman Pink" in some quarters. Here it is built up with an Igleheart fork in a 1x9 setup that served me well on the trails in the New York City area:
    2014-10-05 09.59.01.jpg2014-10-05 09.55.39.jpg

    With a full-time move to Jefferson, NY on the horizon, the trails in Oneonta, NY will be the rig's new stomping ground. I was getting beat up on the rocky, technical, steep trails over there and needed a new setup. Here it is with triple ring up front and suspension fork:

    The Igleheart fork will be on duty when the bike's in touring mode.

    It's a good look; thinking I may move back to the solid Record calipers from my SR Skeletons on my ti Hampsten. Glad to hear you don't think there's anything lost in performance. Plus the Skeletons are a pain to keep clean...
