I thought about an SRM but I can't pay twice the price and loose the ability to change the battery or manage the Quarq through the Qalvin app. I may consider debadging the Quarq though.

Really hot ride, the Corsa's finish it perfectly!
If it was me I'd be tempted to go for a plain black stem & saddle combo, maybe just looks a tiny bit too busy.

Overall, I think the bike looks great. Ultimately, it's what works for you that's important.

From my own aesthetic point of view, however, I think that the all-black tubulars worked better on this bike than the gumwalls. This bike is so "modern" in its lines and graphics that the throwback nature of the gumwalls feel like a mismatch.

Just my 2 bits (disclaimer : my "bits" have no real-world monetary value)
Life's too short to ride clinchers.

Parlee Z-Zero ISP

I'm inclined to agree with you. I've had the Corsa SCs for a while but I'm leaning towards all black to be a little cleaner and simpler.

The other update is I moved to a Praxis BB and a Shimano 9000 crank with a Stages PM. Also a little simpler and more understated. The bike has enough "wow" that I've tried to bring it down a little and versus making it more flashy.

Hello, have a FAST inbound. Can't find any info on what type pads the holders use. I am currently on Campy brakes and have boxes of campy pads for various carbon rims. Will these work or do I need to buy ShimaNO compatible pads?

I've been off this site for a long time - do people really still write Shimano like this? :shock: Really? That strange quasi religious thing still happening. It's pretty high school!

Lovely Ridley - very nearly ordered one myself. Probably will in a year actually.

It is a joke made by Campy owners. Obviously you didn't get it. I have done it so long my iPhone auto corrects to it.

Mine came with SRAM/Shimano Jagwire pad holders.

Beautiful bike. I'm hoping Competitive Cyclist drops the price a bit more on them during the off season. Would love to get the black/white one they have there now.

Call them and make an offer. I got a huge brake from them last week. I just asked and they went for it.
