The picture doesn't do the bike justice.

SI crank
FSA energy wheels.
Its a fantastic bike. Can't wait to get some 50mm carbon wheels on it.

    That really does look the business, Looks ready to race. Love it.
    I would prefer it without 50mm carbon wheels, 38mm if you really need to, but Dura-ace C24 would be ideal on a bike like this.

    I'm looking at this bike too, can you tell us about the finish on this? Is it red paint on anodised aluminium, or is it all paint?

    Cheers.

    The beauty of this... is the frameset is actually really, really best value for money and yes "good to go"... but the upgrades are endless , with wheels, a little carbon here and there ;-) ( quite possibly SISL2 cranks going on mine.)
    CAAD10s - probably best bike in the world for us minions.

    Looks great, why did you disassemble it and send it back? :-)

    Force is the pick of the price/value litter for racing b/c it's tactile and light.

    Tell us how you get on with the regular 'bars. Brave of anyone to spec them, the racers will love them for sure.
    When a cyclist has a disagreement with a car; it's not who's right, it's who's left.
  • 16.17 lbs out of the box - really ? That's light :shock:
    All the gear, but no idea...

    I always liked that shape of bar, they're fine but I'm using the zipp classic bars now. A better transition to the hood. It came with a 90 stem which has been switched for a 110. I've been riding the bike for a few months and it's great. I had a 58 with SRAM red before and the 56 is a better fit.
    It's just a good all round bike. I'm in the process of getting it down to 6.8kg.

    The red is painted, the finish is excellent and very robust. I've ridden it through winter and it still looks like new. I had the black version last year and I prefer this colour.

    I have cero ar30 and rc50 wheels, carbon post and saddle, light stem and bars. It should be down to 6.8 kg soon. I won't be changing the crank but I'll probably put some stronglight or praxis rings on it.
