    :shock: Sounds like another poverty spec build coming up then. No time to hang around for this tut, i am off to fill my Orange Five frame with helium to see if i can lighten it at all.

    Fwiw, I'm using a revelation on mine and really can't fault it, really suits the bike.

    Tell them to get it too you faster! this is the one of your pair im interested in :P
  • Dick ScruttockDick Scruttock Posts: 2,533
    I'm just holding off ordering it as there 'might' be new colours and maybe minor revisions announced this month on the 5010. If not I will definitely be getting a Orange one :D
  • ThewaylanderThewaylander Posts: 8,594
    You like it bright and loud dont you ;)

    I think VPP will suit a shorter mile eater like this so well. make a rapid mover that still holds well on the downs.

    I've got a TRc with Revs, which are great, I just can shake the nagging urge to drop a big wedge on a set of Pikes.

    Therefore I'd say go for the Pikes, especially as you’re a serial upgrader, you'll end up with them either way :D
  • Dick ScruttockDick Scruttock Posts: 2,533
    Well I've been swaying on wheels, seventy30's for the nomad and hand down ENVE AM's for this or save a million pound and get some LB's and pro2 evo's. Needless to say I've decided, I'm getting some LB's :D genuinely looking forward to getting them now, quality looks very good.

    I've got a Haven Carbon bar, XX1 shifter, XX1 mech and cassette too. Just waiting for news on new frame colours until I order it.

    I have just put a pair of LB 650b 35mm wheels on my bike.
    Nancy was the customer contact was very helpful and always replied very quickly to queries and time scales.

    Weight was extremely close to spec and finish is excellent, only ridden them once in anger due to this being a busy time of year for me but very pleased with them on the limited evidence so far.

    Admittedly this is my first experience carbon, wide rim wheels and I am not a riding god by any stretch of truth but I can really appreciate the difference. Hope you have a positive experience as well.

    Only got a PDF.

    5010 Carbon and alloy share the same colours, as do the Bronson Carbon and alloy. Also a new version of 5010C and Bronson C, maybe other models too using a lesser spec of carbon or carbon layup.

    5010 will be matte black and white or orange and lime green.

    Bronson will be matte black and pink/magenta or gloss green and lime green.

    Lawman wants me to buy that one :D I'm fancying a change though :twisted:
  • ej2320ej2320 Posts: 1,543
    Both colours are very nice IMO
    Stealth with white decals is always a good blend
    But that Orange and Green is just too bright to resist :lol:

    If you do make sure you get an XL so I can have it off you in 6 months time ;)

    Its on order 8)

    Bought the hubs and a cassette this morning too :o Just need some 36's for my Nomad, a saddle and brakes now.
  • njee20njee20 Posts: 9,613
    The green decals ruin the orange one - looks like a pack of Tic Tacs! They should have done a green one, and/or an orange one, with black/white decals.

    Looks like a great build though.
  • lawmanlawman Posts: 6,868
    If I can afford one (doubtful) I'd be sticking 140mm 36's on a solo, lighter than a 34, only a smidge heavier than a pike and burly as fark 8)

    No doubt this will be another superb build!
  • Dick ScruttockDick Scruttock Posts: 2,533
    I wish they had moved away from the orange for this year and gone for another colour, lime green with black decals maybe.
  • njee20njee20 Posts: 9,613
    Aye, that would've looked great.
  • bennyybennyy Posts: 141
    So sc's new colours, are the same as last year, except different colour decals?
  • Dick ScruttockDick Scruttock Posts: 2,533
    Got some hubs for it but I'm not sure it will work now seeing how much blue there is on the new frame :?

    Blue? Not much on that orange and green frame is there? A little flash on the downtube.

  • paul.skibumpaul.skibum Posts: 4,068
