    Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

    Now that Fabiana is built up, I am not as excited as I thought that I would be. I bought some green handlebar tape, but it doesn’t match exactly so I don’t know if I want to put it on.

    I am interested to see how she rides. Later today I will get in a 2 hour ride, so I will report back tomorrow.

    I put on the green bar tape and ya, it looks like crap.

    I am not quite sure what to do. Black hoods? Red tape? Black hoods and tape?

    I stuck with the battery that I had in my Cervelo seatpost, but since I can’t go with internal wiring on this frameset, I taped the battery to the NDS chain stay. It’s out of the way.

    Black hoods look better. I think the black bar tape needs to go back on.

    i really like it with green :) it’s more unconventional and you have an unconventional ductape stuck to your nds stay :)

    I changed the tape to black before my ride. I like it better. The green just didn’t match.

    Black hoods and tape flow nicely with the black carbon on frame. I suggest removing or ghosting the wheel logos which would improve the balance of the overall look. Most importantly how does the bike feel when you apply extreme power?

    Nothing ventured nothing gained!

    Yes looks much better with black/black on the bar.
    Like Mike said – maybe get the wheels just black as well?

    What is the weight of the bike?

    2 good rides on her so far. One of nearly 2 hours and then today for nearly 3 hours. I have to say that I just love the ride quality.

    I have thought about the wheels – I will have to see what happens with that. Its definitely as possibility.

    Weight is 16.1# on my hanging scale, but I would like to get that verified with someone else’s scale.

    I knew you’d like the ride. Respectable total weight considering heft of frame and fork.

    I wish that I would have written down the exact frame & fork weights, but I am pretty sure that the frame was around 1,100g, so not too bad. The fork is really fat though at around 450g.

    450 wow how did they made it that the fork is that heavy? must be hard to accomplishment.

    As you talked about the wheels – i´d say you should buy some new wheels for this bike. Maybe some nice LW ventoux ;)
