    It's a 57cm frame, I'm 6' 2"

    Deda M35 Alloy bar 46cm outside to outside

    Deda bar tape
    Selle SMP Dynamic saddle
    Look Keo Blade pedals
    Mavic Cosmic Carbone SL wheels
    Schwable Durano S Tyres

    The Selle SMP saddles are good for me, I have two Dynamics and a Hybrid for my commute. Certainly worth a try if you have 'nut issues'.

    The bike is low at the front, works well and very stiff, although absorbs the road buzz and bumps. It's going to be a year round bike with more basic wheels for the winter.

    I have a Secteur Comp for the really bad weather and a Tarmac Elite SL2 - all running Shimano 10 spd so I can swap the wheels round. My son and I will be sharing the three bikes as he's the right size now, although he's been limited to the Secteur so far!

  • Looks awesome. Weirdly the break track, which i usually dont like on carbon wheels looks really good with the Ti
  • Look great, chapeau

    Lovely bike. The saddle, however, is criminal.

    Certainly an acquired taste.
