Thanks guys!

references were easy.. I have the real thing sitting right beside me! Although mine is black and red and equiped with Dura Ace and the much more modest Race X lite wheelset instead of the Aeolus 5.0s. A friend of mine runs Sram Red so I took a few fotos of his setup to supplement the internet references. All the logos and decals were recreated with paths in PS from foto references.

I hear you Jay about the micro details but I actually purposefully avoided those on this project, sort of a stylistic choice really. I grabbed a few wireframes for ya. Nothing really special about the model though just tried to be fairly accurate and detailed. I'm still fairly new to max and this project was a way of familiarizing myself with max's modeling tools and processes. It's still missing a few details though like the shifting ramps on the chainring and the spoke eyelets on the rims plus the carbon fiber layup pattern on the rims is wrong but maybe I'll come back to those later.

Here are the wires:

Did a bike myself last year and therefore I know what a great work this is!

Fine work! To have all the pieces beside me would have made my work a lot easier!
So if you have a bike left... send me a PM !
