    First 50 mile ride on the new Sachs. Some Compass 28 tires will replace these PR
    but that's all I'll change for the next 10,000 miles.

    Good call on the tires. I usually use the 32s on my Zukas and even their "smaller" tires ride great. Are you liking the eTap? The bike really looks great.

    The eTap is rock solid. It's a tiny tiny bit slower than Di2, but that's to be expected. Every shift is perfect, and the lever
    shape is the best on the market.

    The SRAM Red on my blue Sachs is the best mechanical group on the market for sure.

    SRAM is a contender for electric and easily the best mechanical group on the market.

    Two Sachs? You greedy bastard!

    How do you feel about SRAM rim brakes versus Shimano? Did the hydro rim brakes ever cross your mind?
    "As an homage to the EPOdays of yore- I'd find the world's last remaining pair of 40cm ergonomic drop bars.....i think everyone who ever liked those handlebars in that shape and in that width is either dead of a drug overdose, works in the Schaerbeek mattress factory now and weighs 300 pounds or is Dr. Davey Bruylandts...who for all I know is doing both of those things." - Jerk

    Agreed, about the best looking bike on the salon and I'm sure it rides great.

    Great looking bike Darren. In opposition to Stefan, I love how the modern group complement that frameset and underline that lovely paint color. Well, they should offer these sram brakes in black too imho. I must say I love your handlebar setup. Perfect bend, perfect tilt. Which handlebar is it ?

    Thanks T,

    I think Zipp Carbon Classic SL. I like the shape and the really small tube diameter on the tops. Similar to the old Oval Concept bar.

    +1 on this. ^^^^

    There are several lugged frames with modern components that just nail it for me.
    This Sachs of course is right up there. Also, Matt's Zank, a few Curt Goodrich's with Enve forks that just look nasty.
    Nice job on this!!

    Good on you for using a full-sized road tire here.

    I hope the gum-wall vs black decision is not too difficult.
