Hi all,

I have meant to post this wonderful bike months ago, but I never did as it continues to be a work in progress. I have nothing but great things to say about this bike, and since I have got it built up, my CAAD10 has sat unused in its corner. This does it all for me: sharp cornering without the feeling of oversteering that I got from my old SuperSix, solid climber, surprisingly nice on gravel, and a stunner to look at :thumbup:

Don't bother with an OS-99 Stem. They are extremely flexy and will negatively affect the handling of your Hyper.

@Powerful Pete ... my bad, too new to the internet privacy settings.

@HeluvaSkier ... I have heard both positive and negative things about the stem. Do you have personal experience? Which stack height did you own? From what I gather, the 35mm stack height had the flex issues. Mine is the 40mm stack height so I am hoping for the best. The Hyper's front end is stiff, not as bad as the SuperSix thank goodness, but enough to make my right wrist that is forever damaged from an "unattentive" driver to ache. A little flex will not hurt my performance.

Not sure what stack height I've owned in the OS-99, but they were incredibly light... and worthless. They handle like garbage. I swapped them all out for OS115's. I have a Neo Hyper... I have a Syntace F119 stem on it and the bike weighs 14lbs on the dot. It rides like a dream. Weight is great, but don't compromise handling.

I think headwind meant to say OS99 CSI, the carbon wrapped version, which is a lot stiffer than OS99.
