s a 48 sloping and I cant take credit for the valves and logo alignment. I bought a pait of Veloflex tyres to put straight on the Ksyrium SLR wheels,but the Mavic tyres seem better than I thought they would be.
The brakes are superb,without a doubt the best road brakes I`ve ever used.
The front mech Is a faff to get spot on,and the only upgrade I fancy is a Fizik R1 saddle over the Arione cx I`ve swiped off another bike.
Thanks for the comments.
Birthday Present new build (road bike).
Lovely bike, just one question, why no 'leccy gears? (Not a criticism, just curious)
Valid question... I feel the shift is great Manual,and batteries hanging off the down tube/bulky mechs make it a little clumsy looking.
Beautiful. Just beautiful.
I would suggest a set on Enve 3.4s on it when you fancy splashing some more cash. Anything deeper would look out of place on such a small frame. But you will have to look hard and spend a lot to save much weight from the Mavics.
Personally I would have gone Di2. Pure extravagence, absolutely no need for it, but once you go electronic, you won't go back. And with the hidden battery options, it looks slicker than mechanical these days.
Nit picking though. You must be chuffed with that.
Yep, that is lovely. Out of curiosity, have you weighed it? Also, I'd agree with Solarider on the wheels.
Lovely looking bike. The yellow bits are presumably so you can find it in the dark. I bet that thing flies up hills.
Very nice, would love one of those!
That's a super nice ride. I have been looking to get a c59 myself. Any clues on he weight?
That is quite a nice bike Mr. (I'd have stuck to cable DA too)
I hope in true stw style you're a fat knacker who'll never do it justice!
Photo please of you riding it in baggies, peaked helmet and camelbak
have you considered putting one of the new murdered out RS Pikes on it though?
Been on the scales today...15.3 lbs. I
m happy with that,I knew full well it was never gonna be a contender for the lightest build. The Enves were on the shortlist along with Zipp 303
s but one thing and another swayed me to the Mavics. Might turn up on the club run with baggies though.
