The speedneedle is fantastic, my favorite saddle. As for the bb30, it went right in, even used the same spindle from my supersix. End plugs are installed

Could you elaborate on how it blows your old supersix out of the water?
I am looking at a new frame set to replace my SS ultimate and cannot decide on which frame set to go for.

Because most of my contact points are the same (saddle, bars, wheels), I feel comfortable saying that the frame rides better. I don't know that I could say it's more stiff, but it rides and corners better for sure. The geometry also suits me better than the SS did. In comparing the stack and reach numbers of the two frames I thought I was going to end up having a much larger spacer stack than is present. As it turns out, I've got a bigger drop and smaller spacer stack :mrgreen: go figure.

Nice bike, but better with Easton wheels... It would take a different seat post, this does not lend itself to the saddle.

How so? Eastons have been replaced with Fulcrum Racing 1's, I think they look a bit better and lighter to boot.
