    This build is bound to ruffle a few feathers, especially the deep section rims on a thin-tubed steel road frame. Rob English has applied his unique vision of what an aero road bike should be. Small, but complicated touches like the inverted fork/stem arrangement and integrated skewer ends reduce drag in little ways that add up to make a big difference. The steerer tube extends down from the stem, and is clamped at the fork crown. The top cap applies pressure to the headset from underneath. This allows the cables and wiring to be routed through the headtube for a super clean front end. You can find the junction box tucked under the saddle. A carbon tube takes the place of a normal seatpost. Even though its such a polarizing build, I think the contrast makes this one gorgeous bike.

    So sexy.

    Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

    That’s a nice bike, subtle detailing on the frame is brilliant.

    That is indeed very cool.

    If some nitpicking is allowed, I’d try to use removable valve extenders.
