  1. [SIZE= 10pt][COLOR= black]With orange bar tape gone it softens the orange cabling. White bar tape needs white saddle (epic fail /img/vbsmilies/smilies/wink.gif[/COLOR])[/SIZE]
  2. [SIZE= 10pt][COLOR= black]Blue seat post needs to go as well, looks to obvious. Needs black to continue line of seat tube.[/COLOR][/SIZE]
  3. [SIZE= 10pt][COLOR= black]Loose the stack on the steerer if you value your testicles/img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif[/COLOR][/SIZE]
  4. [SIZE= 10pt][COLOR= black]Re-mount the Ultremos to offset Schwalbe logos with Campy logos[/COLOR][/SIZE]
  5. [SIZE= 10pt][COLOR= black]Stem has to go, looks like a sore nose. You can then re-mount your Garmin (if you must have one) on the stem.[/COLOR][/SIZE]
  6. [SIZE= 10pt][COLOR= black]Photograph in big chain ring[/COLOR][/SIZE]
[SIZE= 10pt][COLOR= black]Good riding[/COLOR][/SIZE]
1 agree a white saddle would be nice...I just really like the CT carbon job...so comfortable
2 I see you point...maybe when funds replenish
3 Not 100% sure the bike is a keeper yet so don't want to cut it if I might relell it.
4. Not a bad idea, might have to give it a try
5 Deda zero already in bound...keeping it Italian there at least. Garmin needs to be lower, at least it is blue
6 you are right

Thanks for the comments, keep them coming. Today I found orange and blue derailleur/brake cables...wires not housing. Pretty slick, which color I am thinking blue.

Very nice - that black and grey color scheme is workin' well!
I'd ride, race, and sleep with that bike!
If you ever want to give it away to someone - keep me in mind/img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif...

My Giant 2010 TCX 2. First decent bike I have owned. Really enjoying it, may even upgrade some components in the future. Next on my agenda is a good TT bike (looking at Felt B16, Trek Speedconcept 2.5 or 7.0, or Giant Trinity).

Black bar tape is against the "orec" official rules of the euro cyclist. :p

Ha! I wish, though they would cost more than twice what I spent on the entire bike! If I do decide to upgrade components on it wheels will be on the agenda though. Right now going to focus funds on the TT bike. Here is a proper repost of the pic:

my story is similar to "in the pink"
new Bianchi C2C Via Nirone 7 57cm road bike. Aluminum frame, carbon fork. Shimano 105 and Reparto Corse components.

I love it. Building my stamina up for 15+ mile rides now after almost 2 weeks.

Nice style with both Raleighs - especially the white. I'd ride 'em.

Here's my sweetie with some winter upgrades. I've been off for over a month with a bum hip, and this week was the first time I rode. A nice difference with the new pieces for sure. The hip got better so I'm back to almost everyday riding, now I only have to get my legs back.
