Newly out of the box - bog standard, with Keo Classic pedals. Yet to be ridden and yet to be weighed.

I don't suffer from OCD much, so not apologising for background - you can never find a blank wall in the house when you need one :D

Seat seems to be a white and blue block of wood :shock:
All the gear, but no idea...

  • Ridden - Y
    Weighed - N

    Quick shot on Saturday morning - starter by getting used to shifters and full float on Keo cleats, but settled in quickly. So smooooooth and stable. Great fun out of the saddle also (left buttck was getting used to the saddle for first 1/2hr).

    So chuffed with it - will weigh it this weekend and headout for a longer run.

    Why do road bike brakes perform so much worse than MTB one, given same rim contact area (albeit pads shorter) ?

  • Love it!

    I had planned on one of these after the Bham Cyle show but as first road bike, couldn't justify the price [to the wife!]

    Went for 2011 Cayo, as all shops a called [including Sigma] told me this version wasnt avaliable until Jan 2012 so things must have changed.

    I went from MTB to road and agree about the brakes, love mine and now suffereing from Cayo envy!

  • Yes - Did look at your Cayo photo before I bought mine.

    I'm thinking Laura Ashley. We've got the same in the lounge, with a matching wallpaper border, which dates it somewhat. Just the right period feel for our 1937 semi.

    Oops! Wrong forum :oops:

    Bike - cool
    Brakes - give them a chance to bed in.
    Curtains - OMG

    Saddle - I have Cayo 2010 version, came with concept saddle ? what did yours come with? Tried a Specialized Romin and Fizik Arione last weekend. The specialised Romin was very comfortable, LBS only had pro version with carbon rails (too rich for my budget'.
