Minimum would be a drive side photo but your welcome to be as detailed as you wish and bonus kudos for in race action photos!

The evolution of my race day set ups:

2012 Madone 5.2: First serious bike I bought in my last year of college. Only ever did one race on it, but I was hooked after that.
Setup: Size 58, Ultegra 6700, Reynolds Strike wheels

2019 Cervelo S5: A big step up in the bike department because I got dropped in my first race. This thing was an amazing experience to ride. Took me from Cat 5 to Cat 2 with a lot of wins in between. Sold in 2022.
Setup: Size 56, Dura Ace Di2 9170, Enve 5.6 or LB AR56
S5 5.jpg

2019 Litespeed Cherohalla: Moved to an area with good gravel and wanted a setup to race on. I'm a metallurgist by degree and have always been drawn to Ti bikes, so got a good deal on an outlet frame and couldn't resist. Managed to grab a few wins on this set up. Sold in 2022
Setup: Size M/L, Ultegra Di2 6870, LB AR56

2018 Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL6: Wound up on a team with a big S hookup. This is probably the best riding bike I've ever had the pleasure of riding. Still hanging in the basement slowly getting robbed of parts. Managed to win a few races and snag my Cat 1 upgrade on this one.
Setup: Size 56, Dura Ace Di2 9170, LB AR56 or Farsports Feder 35s

2022 State Bicycle Co. Black Lable 6160 Allroad: Got a personal bike sponsor. Wanted big clearance on my gravel bike after being tire limited on the Litespeed. This thing is a blast to ride with 2.1" 650b!
Setup: Size 55, L-Twoo GRT 1x12 Hydro, LB AR56 or State Bicycle Co. 650b
6160 all road.jpg
2022 State Bicycle Co. Undefeated: Got a personal bike sponsor. Built this up from the frame with every part I wanted. Ton of fun to ride, does its job as a crit weapon. Won my first P/1 crit on this.
Setup: Size 55, Mix of 12 speed Ultegra and 105 Di2, LB AR56. 36cm bars, 130mm stem and shorter cranks, big fit change.
