Hi there, just wanted to share my new bike I just finished building! A little bit about myself... Im 21 y/o, Ive been riding/racing for 4 years. I had my 2012 S-Works SL4 stolen from my house 5 months ago. I spent the last 4 months sharing a bike with my dad until all of the parts came in for my new bike. It was definitely worth the wait!
I rode it for the first time yesterday for an easy hour and a half ride with my dad. Ill start with my first impression of the new DA 9000... I could not believe how easy the front shifting was! The best way to describe it is effortless! I had 7900 on my last bike and 9000 blows 7900 away. The rear shifting is also improved. The hoods feel very good. They are a little different shape than Di2 but not very much. The brake levers have a nice feel, similar to Di2 and seem to have a easier pull than 7900. Tomorrow Ill do a longer/faster pace ride to get a better impression of everything. Overall the bike felt very snappy/responsive when putting power down. Ill share more after I get more time on it.
