Default Re: Looks or performance.........

i really can't choose between the two.

i love the looks of every bike i've built, and they all perform exceptionally well, too.

my race bike for example. i purposely built that bike to race, and instead of painting it and detailing it all pretty-like, i f'd up the looks intentionally for the "intimidation" factor.

and everyone still complimented me on the way it looked...

when i build a bike, there is no compromise. the looks and performance go hand-in hand. i look at the overall picture and just put it all together.

i'd never build a "show" bike without having the performance tuning to match, even if it was rarely ridden.

if i'm flying by someone so fast that they can't see the details, they can always catch up to me at the stoplight...
