Quite a few changes from stock so I thought I'd post it.

Forks: as above
Bars: Hylix Carbon
Stem: Bontranger Carbon
Headset: FSA (standard with bike)
Bar Tape: Fizik black x 2

Shifters: Shimano 105
Front Mech: Shimano Tiagra
Rear Mech: Shimano 105

Brakes: Shimano Dura Ace

Seat: Fizik Antares V5
Seat Post: Royal Carbon Aero
Seat Post Clamp: Standard

Cranks: FSA K-Force Light Double
Chainring(s): FSA 53/39
Chain: Standard equipment
Cassette: Shimano Tiagra 10 speed

(Yes, there are some extremes in kit but some of them are working perfectly- 105 shifters for example - so taking my time to up-grade)

    Nice, but the seatpost spoils it.

    Bike looks nice but seatpost looks wrong IMO.
  • Nice but echo the seat tube comments. Massive drop as well.

    Lose the seatpost dude.
  • Wow- looks like I need to start looking for a new seatpost ha ha!

    Originally changed as a regular tube looked a little anorexic but will have a play and see...
  • If you were a little bit shorter you would be ok, as the seatpost would hug the frame! Lovely looking bike though!

    Can you reach the pedals on that?
  • Long legs, long arms and a short'ish body for 6-1 is the main reason for the set-up.

    Am still playing with the set-up though and toying with the idea of getting a bike fit. I've heard the Sigma Sport are the best reasonably priced in London- anyone tried them?

    Drop is fine - nothing wrong with that at all - a lot like mine (long legs as well but shortish torso). But change the seta post - its fugly.

    Thanks,

    Nice but not my thing personally.

    Narrowed it down to a Cannondale or a Rose.
