Nah, I accepted that. I just asked why he chose paint over removal, and he answered perfectly fine and I have no problem with that part.
But then he made that other statement, which I quoted and replied to.

If people don't want to go light, that's fine, but to make false statements is a bit offensive to people who actually think about things. Those sort of thoughtless statements get repeated on and on, and it should be fine if someone gave an intelligent reply in order to stop that sort of nonsense.

Meatball, and Wassertreter: I have no problem with you (Meatball) painting the frame, and if you both read a bit carefully you would see that I like the bike! However there was one statement which necessitated a reply. Matching the crank arms to the frame? Makes sense, okay, no problem. But why the ridiculous statement after that, Meatball? You're better than that.

Prend, I'm not keen on picking fights on the internet, but here you're trying to refute a literal (but harmless) crap metaphor, and then keep on insisting with "you're better than that". Please stop the #386.

Thanks for the POSITIVE words, guys.

@Justinn - Yeah, those are the force 22 rings. I didnt realize that at first, but im glad i got those rings since they match the stealth/grey look of the frame.

Once im back home, I'll post some more photos. The frame is actually very pretty in its nude form. There is a lot going on with the unidirectional carbon.

Have you had any trouble getting the 11 speed force rings working with a 10 speed system? Or is sram's claimed "incompatibility" between 10 and 11 speed chainrings just an attempt to get people switching over to buy new cranks?

Oddly enough, i havent ridden the bike yet. Just after i finished the build, i left on a business trip.

However, in the stand, it seemed to shift OK, but not great.
Im also using a 10spd record chain, So i'm not surprised.
If i deem it too poor, i will try a KMC 10spd chain.

My SRAM buddy said they dont test for cross compatibility with other (Campy) groupos.
So my rig should be a good test of that and 10-11spd compatibility.
As soon as i get a chance, i will post a ride report.

I will say, through talking with my buddy, SRAM's compatibility claim is more of a measure of total system functionality.
So, my guess is that when they say "incompatible", it means it does not offer the best shifting performance overall.
I might experience the occasional sloppy shift, but the chain will still move to the next cog.

Proof of this seen in chain rings from other manufacturers like FSA, Rotor, or Praxis who make rings that are both 10 and 11spd compatible.
I have a set of Praxis and Rotor rings and they shift fine - not perfect from time to time - but well enough to not be concerned with it.

I was originally going to put an 11spd campy group on this bike, but didnt want to have to rebuild another bike.
Plus, i think I like the look of the 10spd Campy on this rig.
