Bartape is done wrong. You should start from ends and go up.

You don't need any tape if you start at the top and go down to the bar ends.

Have you had any issues since the install or made any changes?


No changes yet but a set of black Hollowgram SL are on the way :)

One problem I found was that I had made the RD cable too tight, so it would pull out the connector when in big-big. I know you shouldn't do that but you are hard pressed sometimes.

I have almost come to the conclusion that I like the ride on my Campagnolo Neutron Ultra better than my Reynolds wheels. So I will probably sell the Reynolds and buy a set of Mavic R-sys SLR. I'll give it a few weeks before I make the final decision. Ohh and then there is that internal battery...

Changing from the silver SI to the black SI SL saved exactly 41g. New spider lockring saved another 2g. It's nice to save some weight, but I'm not sure which look I like the most.

Weight is now 6.97kg but it rides much better than before.

White tape and saddle would look real good.

A -17 stem would look even better (if it don't throw off your fit).

beautiful build!!! white tape and saddle are never white, thay always turn out to dirty white from day one. Much better black. Also black crankset is an improvement, and same thing with the wheels; less billboard aesthetic is much better.
Happy Trails !!!

Anders, can you give us an update on the Di2? Are you still convinced it's the way to go over Sram of mech Shimano?
