Great looking frame. Strange question: any way you could measure the downtube S-Works decal? Height & length? I'm having a frame repainted and forgot to measure before sanding
Sure I can do that tonight when I get home.
Could save around 60g rotational weight by switching to lightweight inner tubes for relatively cheap $. Very nice bike!
That's some good advice. I will keep that in mind for when the spring rolls around
Love the bike, top effort but please drop the brick pedals !
i'm a big fan of the red tarmacs (i have one myself) but I think the +ve rise stem and mountain bike pedals look a bit off. And those cables are too long, thats not just stiff housing.
Yeah the pedals were just something that I had lying around that I put on there in the interim. I have used SPD pedals and cleats for the last year and during the winter I will be researching a more road bike style pedal/cleat/shoe set up. I am leaning towards speedplay's
As for the cables. I look at them last night and while I agree they are a tad bit long I don't think they are extremely long. I really do think they sit forward because of the stiffness of them and the angle going into the downtube. I took two pictures of the front of the bike. The first is how they currently sit and the second is if you were to push them back parallel to the handlebars. Could I lose a few CM off the cables? Probably, but I don't think its that bad. Curious to hear peoples thoughts though.
Thanks again for the comments!
