When we had our moving sale, I sold the wheels that were on this bike previously. They were too low of a spoke count for me. I decided to rebuild this bike up mainly for group rides , and I luckily found a good deal on a pair of higher spoke take-offs. The Fizik saddle is nothing new for this bike, but it is previously unpictured. I love the color matching of the frame accents, the stem, and the saddle. It definitely makes the bike stand out. The yellow camo bar wrap and the cheap “Hudz” (brake hoods) are on the way out for the next update. I have OEM SRAM hoods and Fizik wrap incoming, both in black for a sharp, clean look. Dura-Ace pedals are going back on as well because I can’t show up to a group ride with platforms, right? 😉
I really love this bike. It rides like a dream, looks great, and has a unique style. I look forward to getting it back out on the road. I’ve pulled it off the market because I think I’d have a hard time replacing it. Of course, the right offer could make me change my mind.
The new parts should be here within a week, and I’ll post new pictures once complete.
July 1st, 2016 update:
I’m putting on a new chain and then this bike should be ready to rock. I really like this new bar wrap; I also feel like it will “break-in” well. I’m thinking a carbon SRAM Red crankset (175mm+) would really complete this bike. Of course the wheel reflectors need to go as well…
