    Very nice, my Rose CGF 3100 is in the delivery van on its way to me as we speak. Keep jumping to the window every time I hear a car outside but not here yet. Will post a picture later.

    further to my earlier question, do the gear/brake cables cross over under the bottom bracket in such a way as they might rub on each other? Could decide whether i order British or Euro spec on my GFC....

    The front brake cable has a tighter turn on a UK setup bike because it comes out of the bartape on the right and then immediately down to the adjuster on the caliper on the right hand side of the bike. With Euro set up it's coming from the left but still going to the right hand side.
    To a lesser extent the same is true for the rear brake cable going to a cable stop to the left of the headtube.

    Gear cables you get no choice; the right shifter must control the rear mech. You can have a more relaxed cable arc if you run the right hand cable to the left hand cable stop and vice versa, then cross the inner cables beneath the downtube so they are the right way round at the BB cable guide. The inner wires will be in contact with each other, and possibly with the downtube, but in practice it's not an issue.

    That's very nice, can't work out the model is it carbon, the CRS 4400 ? Looks like an adonized finish.
  • Yep, she's all carbon. Looking forward to ditching the winter hack and getting out on it.

  • Had anyone got any solutions for squeaky disc brakes while it's wet, I know that a certain amount of squeak is natural but I hate it when you start to slow and everyone starts looking around to see what the hell is coming behind them.

    I have ordered a Rose Pro SL 3000 with Kysirium Elite wheels on Jan 18. Payed by credit card and received confirmation email instantly and nothing more. On the website, at the moment of order, it said bike available in 4 weeks so I'm half way through. I was wondering if my order has been misplaced somewhere because it kept saying Is being processed. Finally the status changed to Goods prepared for assembly. I can't wait to see it was dispatched. I feel excited when I read people have received it earlier than estimated.

    I was giddy with anticipation for the whole time with mine, worst thing was when status went from two weeks, to one week, to two weeks to one week all in 24 hours!
  • Noticed over the weekend while doing some routine maintenance that the cassette is showing signs of rust. Only had the bike since Dec and do regular maintenance, it does however get left in the rain while at work as we do not have any covered bike storage at work.

    Take a look at these:
    http://www.wiggle.co.uk/rain-covers/

    You can keep one at the office and if it starts raining just put it over your bike. Usually after I ride in the rain I wipe the bike with a cloth especially on the drivetrain, just to remove the water from the cassete, cables, derailleur etc
  • This is mine!

    Got some updates to do for this season including new pedals and a slightly altered position. And possibly going to splash out of some 50mm tubulars for racing. Can't decide on tires though. Tan wall or full black?

    Wow! Are Marjon CC a big team then? They must be to race up ventoux!!

    Well, the bike arrived. Unfortunately I couldn't enjoy it for too long. Today, at its third ride the front shifter jammed. Worked fine half the ride and suddenly couldn't move to the bigger chainring. Googled it and found plenty of people with the same problem. Seems like the STI levers are very fragile and impossible to repair. My 9 sp Sora still works like a charm after thousands of km and now I'm stuck with some high-end expensive unsusable shifter

    In the end I fixed by myself. I don't know what caused it. In the end it was solved by a readjustment of the FD. Which is not so easy on this new 6800 set, very little information on the web and the design is not very intuitive. But now it runs really smoothly

    The Sram Force version at £1650 caught my eye, be interested to hear any reviews too.

    There seems to be a lack of any information/reviews on the X-lites around at the moment. A couple of reviews of some models have recently appeared on the Rose website which seems very positive.

    I've not yet seen an English language magazine review other than "first look" type articles although there do seem to be some German and Italian reviews about for those with good linguistic skills.

    Looking at the X-lite geometry, they should be fairly similar to the outgoing Xeon CRS models. The stack to reach ratios are both about 1.46 for a size 59, so pretty racy but not ridiculously so.

    I've been looking at the Force equipped X-lite CRS model too. What do people reckon is the pick of the wheel options available? The upgrade to Dura Ace c24s seems expensive and the Mavic options all include the less desirable Mavic tyres. Anyone got any feedback on the DtSwiss r20s or r23s? Looks like the r23s are a bit heavier but have a wider rim which seems to be in favour at the moment.

    I only know of the DT Swiss wheels from looking at the Canyon Endurace Last year, Don't know much about them, and would be of a mind to upgrade straight away. I don't much fancy the mavic wheels either if i can help it.

  • ROSE XEON CGF-3000 arrived today. Took it out for a short test ride and what a brilliant bike. SO much lighter, more responsive than my previous Roubaix. Weight without pedals is 6.9kg

    what stem spacers have you got on there? Have just ordered the CDX-3000 with 20mm on but wondering if that's too much.

    I actually ordered 25mm justto be safe. I can decide how much i want then cut down steerer. As it is pictured i have 20mm under and 5mm on top of the stem, seems ok to me.

    Rose X-Lite Team 8800 was reviewed in Tour International 3/2015 (english text). You can purchase the magazine via their app (Android or Ipad).

    Tours verdict: "Extremely robust lightweight with a sensational fork. Sensible price, equipped for everyday use. Top comfort at the saddle and the handlebars."

    Final grade was 1.2 (were 1.0 is best possible score and 5.0 is the worst).

    should have asked in last post but what torque do the seat post & stem require please; am looking to buy a Ritchie pre-set wrench in time for new baby's arrival.
