They look precisely like SLR's.

Not a bad thing, I love the aesthetic.

Absolutely stunning! Does it ride as nice as it looks? Is the Paradigm that good? I love the sleek look of it but most of the reviews on distributor websites are really negative. I was thinking of upgrading to it myself. Cheers. :wink:

its fantastic, the only time I felt discomfort was on yesterdays 80 milers but thats only because the roads were dreadful and the amount of time in the saddle, 50milers comfy all day long.

As for bad reviews, there shouldnt be any because if you dont like it bontrager offer a 30day comfort money back guarantee.

Im looking to shave abit of weight off the bike, new month Ill be getting the DA9000 Crankset and Carbon pedals, Ill also be looking at some Titanium skewers which shave off another 80g. Ive already got lightweight innertubes in that have been flawless, but where else can I shave weight?

Forgot to add ill also be getting the DA9010 brakes which are about 20g per brake lighter

What weight is it at the moment? Most obvious area is probably wheels?
