Now pictured w/ eebrakes, zipp sl carbon bars (needed more reach, saved 27g in the process), powercordz for brakes and derailleurs and my carbon clinchers – farsport 38mm rims w/ cx-rays and extralite hubs.
Putting the finishing touches on some changes– I went to powercordz for both brakes and derailleurs, seems to be working quite well. Also changed out my handlebars from ritchey superlogic II carbon (184g) to Zipp SL carbon (157g). I needed a bit more reach and this has also worked out quite well. Once I have the bars properly taped and the hoods back on I’ll snap some pics and update.
Jeff– no specialized! NO! You’d be riding a frame that looks like a dog pooping. Unless you’re into that, it’s not really sexy. Then there’s the “shortened” version of specialized– “spesh”. Sounds like you’re teaching a self-contained class in a public school and/or… (let me stop there).
Thanks! It is solid. I’ve been using the 38mm carbon clincher wheels I just had built up. Farsports rims w/ extralite hubs & cx-rays. 1172g for the pair. 182g heavier than the enve wheels but when the bike is this light it’s kind of nice to have the ability to change a tube instead of a tubular in the event of a flat tire (especially when commuting to/from work).
