New addition to my stealth

Hi all,
I've decided to give oval chainrings a try so today I fitted a set of Dovals. I haven't had chance to have a proper ride yet so can't comment on them but boy I think they look good :D
In my previous post, someone asked if my Zipp stem was a copy, well, it only cost a tenner so it's either a copy or I got one hell of a deal! But it's light and stiff and has lasted 1000+ miles so it'll do me!
Here's some of the latest pics with the Dovals fitted

    Your last post is only 10 below this one. Why did you need a new thread? Also try not hosting with drop box as it makes it a pain to inbed images.
  • I always see, and very much like these Ribbles. How does it ride?

  • It's the first full carbon fibre bike that I've owned so can't really compare it to any others but compared to my Giant Defy2 it's miles ahead (in my opinion). It just feels so much stiffer and responsive, as soon as you start to 'give it the beans' it reacts. I only fitted the Dovels yesterday but on my first ride today I think I'm going to like them :)
