    Doesn't it mean a handle bar mustache, jeans cuffed up over work boots that have never seen work, suspenders over a flannel shirt and a bike that looks nice, but is totally unusable?

    Nice score. Honestly, I wouldn't change a thing and just ride it at 10/10ths and then see what needs changing. Can't tell you how many times I have heard in the pits "I've been chasing x for 2 years only to end up back with the config I started with" when it comes to race bikes. Racing has a tendency to push to efficiency but it is also personal - as my father always told me "start with a baseline and then make small corrections".
