    I love the look and the finish.

    I've used the Wah-Wah, which is pretty much the same pedal, for about 3 months in the fall and just loved it.
    I actually bought a new pair for this bike, and then Deity came out with the Decoy... SOLD!

    I love the thin platform, great control and energy transfer (wow!?). We'll see how long the white PC finish lasts... I've also ran Syncros Mentals in white, for two seasons and they lasted just fine. The grip on the Mentals was just that... mental. Sometimes I thought they were too grippy.

    The Wah-Wahs/Decoys are the better compromise I think.

    Yeah, happy with the weight, didn't even try too hard.

    Had I kept the UST Big Betty tires I had, I think it woulda dropped under 37... but I like the Minions too much...

    I don't think everybody minds the "check out my new bike" threads nearly as much as the "what bike should I buy" threads.

    and your taco is backwards.

    The Taco still looks weird... do you have a really big Taco and small chainring or something? All my LG-1 setups have have very little Taco showing past the chainring...
    Either way, pimp looking rig!

    Yeah, big Taco and 36T ring. Might be the pic angle too...

    (I wanted to be flexible in case I decide to go with a bigger ring)

    Cheers!

    also looks to be a non-wide back plate. The wide would allow the guide to be rotated further clockwise for a better fit.
