    Why the enve fork?

    LOL, it's a toss up (excuse the pun) between the ends looking good due to no wrap edge and it looking like a phallic object.....

    Enve fork as the standard EC90 SLX was too soft.....went for the 2.0 also as I'm 85kg :D
  • Flamin awesome, defo want some of those enve bars lol

    If I had to pick fault purely on taste, the Nokon cables and there's something not quite right with those bars.

    Out of interest what don't you like about the Nokon's?......I couldn't decide black or white so I thought I'd try both.......

    The black and white looks a bit sweet shop, personally I think that plain black would look better but that's just me I'm not picking fault.

    Sorry, but Is that a rusty bolt on the stem or is it the light.

    No mate it's the grease that comes on the bolts from Enve, does look like it's rusty though.......

    Enough bar tape on there? :P

    That looks really fast though. Must be one of the most expensive builds on here with all that ENVE stuff!

    Road - Dolan Preffisio
    MTB - On-One Inbred

    I have no idea what's going on here.

    The tape is double wrapped lizard skins.....(don't like wearing gloves lol)

    It is proper quick, the wheels have made the biggest difference. The bike seems to pull you along on the flat :D
    I do like Enve stuff and it matches the frame perfectly

    First BMC I've really liked on these forums! Really nice :)

    That's really nice. My pet peeve though is decent bars with decent tape (I use the same stuff) but with half a roll of electrical tape to 'finish' it. It only needs a couple of neat wraps to stop tape unravelling - and there's no need to stick it to the bars either.
    I'm left handed, if that matters.
  • nweststeynnweststeyn Posts: 1,574
    I like the look of having the tape a few mm on the bars (1 wrap of it) to give it a streamlined/tidy look, personally.

    I could live with that - but this ain't tidy!
