    Thanks to you. I'd rejected it because the headtube was too long. Then I looked again. 2mm shorter than the Cannondale and the Cannondale has a big 16mm bearing cover/spacer.

    Worst case I can put a -17 on 😀

    Here is is on its maiden outside voyage. Saddle ended up a bit further back. I felt faster on this bike than anything else I've ridden before. It's smaller, bars lower, I'm guessing that's the reason, just more aero without ever trying to be. I suspect the 120 stem is too short, I can touch the bars with my knee when standing (only when I try to do it, doubt it would happen accidentally). Did 80km on it, by far my longest ride in modern times, it hurt my upper back, might have been because the saddle was too far forward for a lot of the journey and the crosswinds were so scary I was tensed up.

    As soon as I get paid in March it'll get Ultegra (have to buy from 3 different places due to stock levels) and probably some Fulcrum wind 40

    Thanks, no it is a Fenix SL. I'm not a huge fan of the curved top tube and if this ends up working well for me I'll probably get a Helium which is basically the same thing with a straight top tube.

    Love the new wheels and groupset. Bit of a rear wheel rub when climbing out of the saddle. Will check the brake is centred. Holding the furthest part of the hoods instead of resting the palm on the flats feels way nicer than on any previous levers I've had. Might try angling the down a little more. I'm also going to try a 130mm stem.

    I used to get rear wheel rub with my old Fulcrum 40Cs. Always had to run the pads slightly further away from the wheel than on any other wheels.

    If those graphics aren’t stickers (i.e. waterslide decals) and you want to remove them, Effetto Mariposa Carogna Remover will do it safely, if you can be bothered to do it.

    Cheers mate, I think they are stickers. I'm enjoying the overly busy factory wheel look at the moment, even left the safety warning stickers on :)
