the return of the ROS 9...

haha, so true. The bike is so last decade's kinda cool, but stil tidy none the less. I really don't like silver though, it's almost my least fave paint for steel bike. Passable on alu. I don't know why you wouldn't go raw or utilitarian grey or super lux sparkley metallic. Just plain ol' silver Frown

Ti with painted graphics

Take it all back! Ti is beautiful, but that shot it looks like silver paint (which you know how I feel about). Maybe it's cause the tubes are kinda fat and it has that funky junction at the headtube. Has an alu vibe. Anyway, raw ti is wonderful and even though it's kinda like silver paint, it's totally different.

That gold ferrule on the end of the cable into the mech is a super nice touch tup

incredible looking bike. Raw clear coat is a cheat code for aesthetics.

I will say that the point where the seat stay meets the top tube, you need at least 3° bend there, otherwise it looks like it's sagging into itself.

EDIT: just turned my monitor sideways, this one actually IS sagging into itself by a degree or so.

On paper I should love this, but something isn't working for me and I can't figure out what. Maybe the silver fork? maybe that little seat tube brace. Maybe I like all those awesome chrome bits contrasted with a richer colour vs raw. Maybe it's just too many metals??

The only thing I don't love is the seat tube brace. Get rid of that and It's pretty much perfect.
