Pretty happy with everything, the bar tape is a bit ropey, I thought the adhesive backing on the fizik tape was impossible to get off! May consider re-wrapping. Also rear brake level seems to not quite return to extended, may have to have a look at cables or rear caliper spring.

Had a quick blast whilst it wasn't raining, and this thing can really climb, feels like it weighs about 2oz.

    I had a similar problem recently - traced it back to the short section of Jagwire outer that ran to the rear caliper - the Jagwire outer was way too stiff to allow the brake to release properly, no matter what length I tried. Switched back to a standard shimano outer for that section and no more problem.....

    I shall try this, I have a spare section of Dura Ace outer cable.
