    Since you asked (complimented) so nicely...



    There’s nothing left to do on this bike except bar tape (I need to try white, and a different blue) and tyres (I had to use old ones, and I need to try the new FMB 26c clinchers). It’s *awesome*.

    Might hold onto it for a little longer after all...

    Finally got my EPS frame. What a tank! 1250 for bare frame, 366 for the fork, another 215 for the crappy-seeming seatpost. Gorgeous fit and finish. Build and pics to follow...eventually.

    It's the difference between a keeper frame and a toy for whims.

    Put it this way, several Pro Team riders change one or more frames during the season.
    We build our racing frames like the Colnago above, instead of thinking "3 frames per season" we think "same frame does 3 seasons or more".

    Thanks - they’re amazing wheels!

    New tyres and new tape, as is customary for me. I’m not a fan of the ‘Trump Tan’ orange of the sidewalls on the Turbo Cottons, but I’ll put up with them until I decide to buy the 24.5c FMBs:

    I did the mistake of selling this Extreme Power PR00 59cm about 1,5 years ago, but managed to buy it back yesterday. (I convinced the owner that he needs to buy a new disc brake Canyon Ultimate ;))

    I'm definitely not going to sell it for the second time!

    Yeah EP is an exceptional frame..... it will be the last one out of the door if I ever have to sell my bikes, had mine for at least 8 years now and it never fails to give me a warm and fuzzy feeling.

    Mind you am also currently enjoying a V3RS at the moment too...

    That EP is a gorgeous bike. Looks perfect.

    Curious - what stem cap are you using, if you are using one at all?

    No 5mm spacer above the steerer tube? It’s carbon, right?

    It’s not essential to do that. If the fork is cut well and depending on the bung used, it isn’t an absolute necessity.

    EPS is built! Of course it poured rain on its first ride...

    That's a nice Colnago, what saddle are you using?

    I haven't posted pics either as mine keep coming up sideways too?

    Yeah...the attachment manager for VS kind of sucks. But post very few photos on the internets at all, can’t bring myself to use a third party.

    That saddle is a SWorks Power Curve. I like it well enough, and have a deep stash of the SWorks version because I kept breaking them on my MTBs, and then gave up on the carbon rails and shells entirely there.

    Cool bike Applesauce! Interested to hear your ride impressions.

    Good catch. This EPS is a rocket and easily takes 28s. I never thought of it as heavy; only solidly built. It’s telling to me that most sub-kilo frames have been moved on while this one stays with me. I was once stupid enough to try selling it; thankfully no one was smart enough to snap it up before I came to my senses.
