Sorry I missed this. The Velos were hard as rocks. New updates soon. I have Q-Rings going on this week, and the new SL Speed bottle cages.

Zipp SL Speed carbon bottle cages

Lighter and better looking. I can shove the bottles in without looking and not worry about breaking them.

What??!?!?

Were you running latex tubes? What pressure were you running??

I run Vredestein latex at anywhere between 90-100 psi and they are comfortable and FAST!

105 PSI with Challenge Latex.... In comparison to 4000s and Tangente at the same pressure, hard as rocks...

That's wild.....exact opposite for me. Tangente's are basically Vittoria's, right? Those are nice tires and were comparable IMO, but the 4000s were absolutely awful in my book. All were ridden on wide wheels so maybe that affected the feel?

Of course I am currently running Challenge Parigi-Roubaix with Vittoria latex and wide clinchers which are soft and surprisingly fast-feeling.

Either way, nice bike you have there!! :beerchug:

Yep as far as I know. They are super forgiving yet stick the road like glue.

All on Mavic K10s

I haven't run Challenge yet... I would like to eventually.

Thanks. I think it's sublime...

Red ring weights.

So I gained 14 grams. That's a small gain since I am gaining 4% wattage according to Rotor. I have some KCNC ring bolts on the way that should trim a few grams.

Rotor Q-Rings installed.

I think they look better. I wasn't a huge fan of the SRAM Red silver on black.

KCNC bolts installed. Unfortunately all five bolts weren't installed due to the proprietary in crank arm bolt.

CAMSHAFT,

Are you experiencing any Yellowing on the White parts of the bike? Particularly on the Top Tube?

Mine's slowly turning yellow especially where my thighs occasionally rub. I don't know if I'm really that acidic. I don't use any harsh chemicals on my bike (at the most babywipes) when I clean it. It's pretty weird too because the Yellowing occurs only on the non drive side. I couldn't see any on the drive side. Sun?

Thanks.

No yellowing but it does get discolored easily. I have to be very careful with grease on my hands. Lately brake dust seems to accumulate heavily were the down tube meets the fork.

I've been using WD-40 wash lately and haven't had any issues.
