Incredible beautiful with Lightweights, matte black with white graphics.

Absolutely hideous with ENVE TT wheels (WTF are they doing on your road bike? makes it look like a brick) and the Gold color is just wrong. Way too much. A little gold can look amazing. Like the LW special Obermeyer edition with subtle gold signature and a couple of golden spokes. But that Gold show on your stem, down tube and rims are just not working well.

Otherwise great choice of components on an amazing frame.

Concur - so hot with the Ventoux/Gipfelsturm, not so much with the ENVE's...

What the?? it's dead already!

I have been walking past it in the bike cage for weeks admiring it :) i have the z1 that is occasionally parked about 10feet from your bike (same wall further towards the exit gate)

Pity its trashed but what is the replacement going to be?


I actually posted the photos of the bike after it was written off. Hit a pothole in the neutral section of a race, came down and bike was dead. Pretty frustrating.

Haven't decided on a replacement yet, might get something with a bit of colour, this bike was a bit plain :)

Ventoux all the way!

Shallow(er) wheels are looking better and better to me every day.

Sorry about the rotten luck. What's the plan now?!

I am actually thinking a venge or contador SL4. A bit boring really.

I liked the gold. Those wheels aren't exactly subtle - why not go for it with the gold decals? Looked good!
