Do you find the KMC chain "polishing" the Q rings where contact is made?

[quote="kevosinn"]got some new wheels today and it brought it down to 12 lb 4 oz......The tubies are veloflex carbons that weighed in at 260 grams each so a lot of weight could be saved there but they ride amazing. Also another picture of the RD that shows it better.

This frame is meant to be built with low profile wheels! WOW!
Dont You ever put those high profile ones on it again! :smartass: :wink:

Is there a reason why you dont use the Wilier one piece stem/bar unit? I think its the plasma.
Too heavy?

That would actually look really good but yes its to heavy for this build. The enve stem is actually temporary as well as the stem. I plan on getting a full AX lightness cockpit if I can find it or at least the extralite stem.

That's a pretty good definition of bling-bling.

Congrats!

Spindoctor what about the certificate's declared weight? Was it exact?

2 g difference - that could be the scales

The Plasma integrated bar and stem are on my SLR - no real weight saving over a 3T ergo combo, but oh so stiff, and they are a better shape for comfort on the top bar section. However they have 0 deg pitch, not minus 6 deg as usual.

but they do look stunning!

FWIW; I've seen the Ritchey MonoCruve bars with Wilier branding on them. Think it was a photo from Eurobike. They're -6%.
