Personally I love it and it rides great...

A few things to do...

1) Reduce steer tube
2) Years supply of white bar tape (don't think I can bring myself to put black on it)
3) saddle
4) Wheelset


Oh, the short stem is because I have abnormally long legs and short reach.

    I'll deal with the first few posts in this thread:

    "Try Fizik Microtex in white, it's easy to clean so stays white for longer"

    "+1"

    "+1 Fizik Microtex is the best tape i've ever used"

    "+2 Fizik Microtex FTW"

    Job done. :lol:

    Please don't shoot me. My husband has Fizik Microtex on his bike and I really don't like it. Each to there own :wink:

    Yeh i've used it an found it a bit meh. Nice texture but horrible in the rain and really quite thin plus not the easiest to wrap. The only plus is being able to clean the white stuff - a myth which i can't verify as i use black. Bontrager stuff is quite nice, but doubt the white stays clean.

    Everyone bums the Microtex on here though. Just another internet bandwagon i guess (that'll stoke the fire :wink: ).

    That's a nice bike.

    But isn't it a real bummer when you have to put your chain back on after having it fall off, and then get oil over your white bar tape?
