Lightweight racer

Can't change the title so I was going to start another thread when the bike arrives...

At this point, I don't know what that means. ;)
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?

Im confused. when did we start admiring worse than mediocrity?
When we started the system of "likes" on social media....lol


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".
