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

    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?

    Intriguing cleavage on the seat tube at the BB junction.

    My Italian fantasy-have Ernesto fit me for a C59 and do it up in Geo paint.

    I was just riding my C50 HP yesterday and loving the the sensations of the road it was giving me and the thought crossed my mind to end my relationship with the Scottt Addict R2 and buy a C59.You did the right thing by crossing over to the red white and green side. You are going to fall in love with the ride of that EP I am certain of that. A trip to Italy to ride the finished bike would be the ultimate icing for the cake! :-)

    Thanks! Have the 10 speed Di2. Downshifting is fine-Upshifting from the 11 cog is sloppy. (Fairwheel was upfront about letting me know that this cassette would not measure up to DA shifting standards.) Barely any ramping compared to DA-if it had comparable ramping my guess is that the aluminum would quickly disintegrate) But my interest was in: 1) saving weight-the cassette pictured is an 11/28 and weighs 113 grams with lock nut and free hub spacer; and 2) using it for a climbing time trail and an ascent of Whiteface Mountain-during which I’ll be in the 39 and 21, 24,28-not much of a cross over therefore no sloppy shifts.

    I would love to see a complete frame in the weave of those seat rails.
