I know you've seen lots of these but here's mine anyway;

Apologies for the spacer tower, just too old and stiff.

Nice. Forget about your age. Slam that stem.
I do like the sloping top tube of the Cervelos :thumbup:

Sweet ride and low weight. I like the low profile wheelset. Congrats.

That Easton post is a prime candidate to be replaced by carbon candy from MCFK, AX, etc.

How are you making out with the Vuma crank? I've happily had mine for >4 seasons and counting. Outside of updating it to the latest 10/11 rings and a new BB along the way, it hasn't been an issue. I'm bummed out Zipp / SRAM discontinued it, but I've got a got a spare Vuma BB just in case they get hard to find in the future (hasn't happened, yet).

I have the same post but removed the decals with a razor blade. Good looking bike I don't think the stem height is too bad.

Thanks for the comments, I just took a quick picture because the sun was out so the matching New Ultimate post and Zero G brakes which are usually on it are on another bike just now ( normally weight closer to 5.6kg ).

The Vuma Quads have been trouble free so far (fingers crossed) just had to replace rings a couple of times and they've seen service on 4 different frames and 15000+ mls.
