My xmas present to myself.

Ultegra/DA mix groupset, with 3T finishing kit and Ksyrium SLR wheels. Not flashy, but everything is on there because I wanted it to be. First impressions - i'm in love :D

    A very nice looking bike. Like the strong black and white theme! Love the wheels, simple but striking.

    Thanks Vespario. I also looked at the 2012 Ksyrium SL wheels, which were cheaper and arguably a bit prettier, but I'm glad I went for these ones.

    My dream wheels. I bet that's lovely for climbing!

    I have no idea what's going on here.

    To tell you the truth, the only thing it's climbed so far is the staircase from our garage to the spare room until the weather gets better! It's had 2 30-second rides in the street to make sure everything was ok and it won't see daylight until March at least.

    That must be torture!

    I've been thinking about getting a set of those wheels so I would be interested to know what you think of them.
