    Although beauty is in the eye of the beholder, this thread needs more photos so we can judge how pretty everyones bikes are.

    Oh OK then… It’ll pain me forever that the post has a different coloured stripe to the stem/bars, but it came with the frame and is colour-matched… But it’s all 3T, it all fits and it all makes me happy 😀

    And I’ve realised if I’m going to make a request for photos, I should join in:

    Too many rules broken with those two bikes to mention.

    Not sure whether I should admit to this, but following my post earlier, I’ve just ordered s-works bars and stem to match my seatpost. Got a very good deal though, as compensation for my forks being recalled. Feel a bit of a dick, as they won’t be any better or different from my current set up, but hey.

    Pro LT seatpost, Deda stem and Synros bars 😀 I am considering a ragley mountain bike saddle on it as well because they fit my ar$e perfectly – my bike is a right old cobble and nothing matches but it goes great

    I replaced the Easton stem on my tcr with a Ritchey of identical proportions, for no otherreason than it matched the aftermarket ergo bars. In my defense, it was only £10 in the bargain bucket. The ritchey FORKS, however may be an indulgence too far. And the Giant carbon post still matches the frame.

    Thomson Elite seatpost

    Specialized stem

    Specialized bars

    might get round to switching the stem to Thomson or Easton, one day, if I can be bothered and have some spare money to waste…
