You are a man after my own heart with your frame choice. You posted the weight of the frame. But what size is it? (Hope you enjoy riding it.)

i have managed to get some new yellow flo bora stickers ( on there way) which may or may not work...
Heres some indoor pics (pouring down here) will do some out doors when the weather gets better.

The spacers are just short term untill i fiddle about with my position, and managed to get one of the first Garmin 800 GPS packages, with HR and maps and Cadence.
Couldnt resist it!

I like how the Garmin has a carbon wrap. Matches nicely.

O and I think flo bora stickers would look good. A great bike though.

Very nice.

Maybe a pair of yellow Mavics would match nicely?

Congrats on a nice build

She has a nice stance

Agree the yellow over the red on the boras will probably look better.

What did the total weight come in at ?

enjoy
