Thanks dude! Got them as part of the frame deal.....if I like them I will probably get some Rotor cranks when I upgrade to Campy.

EDIT: Sick drop on your ride btw!

Weighed her today.....a bit porky due to the levers, brakes and chain set which will change when the entire group gets upgraded.

Image

What do y'all think for group? I was thinking Campy; however, I am keeping the wheels which are confirmed 1440g and robust for all-around use. That made me think I should go SRAM Red.

p.s. for the non-metric amongst us....

What do you think of the ride so far?

I've been considering it since seeing this CC article[1] mentioning Craig Lewis liking his:

Quote:
He was rocketing up the climbs around Boulder, Colorado on his Fuji Altamira. How Craig was riding thanks to his Top-20-at-Langkawi form combined with his effusive praise for the ride of the Altamira (he said that it equals his High Road Specialized Tarmac), made me curious about the bike.

Loving it to be honest! Coming from a CAAD10 so the compliance from the thin stays and carbon is fantastic. The weight is great and will be below 15 when I get some cash to finish the upgrades. Handling is tight but not twitchy, it really feels confident.

Some new photos and a weight reduction! Need to find some light weight skewers and brakes.

Upgraded to Michelin Pro 4s, Michelin Aircomp tubes. Here are some weights.

Nice pick. I don't see too many Fujis out my way. Really nice.

How's the channel in the saddle? Did you have a "regular" Fizik before it to compare the two?

Thanks!

@mellowjohnny, I had an Arione before that did not feel good. I think my sit bones were too wide for the Arione and I was experiencing some numbness. That's why I went wider and the channel. Can't say whether the relief is coming from the wider saddle or the channel.

Nice ride. :thumbup: I like the fact it's not totally stealth. It seems there's a bit more thought gone into it and I think that looks great.
I've a Caad 10-1 and can't fault the bike, just can't get it to look as good as this :?
