Best to you on your new steed! HSPlobo... Not to mention, Tru won't get all over you about showing the power side ... (Did I mention Tru's name???) Now, from here on in... you are part of this group.... so with the new "sofa".... don't be a "couch tater"....enjoy it, and post your rides, even more pics of those rides....

Sheesh, you gave a few helpful suggestions on how to post photos of bikes and now you are forever known as the bike-photo police drag out to scare the new comer.

By the way welcome to the forum. It's a great bike. Very responsive and light (it's the first serious road bike that I bought). Enjoy riding it.

Sheesh, you give multiple beatings on how you as a n00b better post photos of bikes and now you are forever known as the bike-photo enforcer knocking out-dragging out to scare the new comers until they get it right or else.



Here Tru, I fixed it for you for accuracy.

Ya geez guys it's not like Tru corrected him on the background being too busy, or that the crank arms are not level with either the chainstay, or the seat tube, or perfectly bisecting them. Or that the valve stems are not at 6:00. Or that it is not shifted onto the smallest rear cog and the large chainring. Rule #26
