Thought I'd share some (rubbish phone camera) pics of my new bike, collected this morning. Apart from a very quick blast up the road not ridden it yet but hoping to tomorrow. The prelimanary bike fit I had has put me in quite a different position to my other bike so interesting to see how that goes!

Very happy with the bike, it looks better in the flesh though. The Rival 22 speed groupset is very nice, the front shifts a lot easier than my other bike. steerer not cut yet until I'm confident of the position!!

    Fulcrum Racing Quattros too. I just bought a set earlier this year and find them excellent.

  • Looks great in the photos. So probably looks fantastic in the flesh!

    Looks great. I would imagine that it will ride like the proverbial s**t off a wet shovel!

    Thanks Philby but probably not with me on it! At least it will look like I'm going fast!

    Cheers Crescent, I'm hoping they will be ok, I had bought Zondas in the great Wiggle saga but when that fell through they offered me these instead. I think they go well with the bike.

    Thanks for the nice comments guys. :)

    Congrats, great bike. censored -paper clearances with the Conti 25mm GP4000Smk2s though - my Wife's got them on her Evo and I ended up having to sand the injection mould tags off them as the noise was driving her nuts!

    Mine have enough clearance, probably a good 5mm I'd say. Maybe it's worse on a smaller frame, mine's a large. I won't be fitting mudguards though that's for sure!!
