Hello

I am riding my new bike for a month I think. We couldn't hang out much together because of the bad weather, but I am planning to have a stronger relationship now.
I was riding a 2009 Specialized Tarmac Expert frame before that, and after bought 6800 group and new wheels, I wanted to have a new frame too.

Here is a part list;

This is the first, complete built.
7050 grams in the picture including Garmin, bottle cages and pedals.

After 80km's, the cheap carbon saddle cracked so I started to ride with my old, favourite Romin Evo Expert.
I also bought Garmin Edge 510 meanwhile.

Image
This is photo from today.
Pink tape for the Giro.
120 grams heavier saddle and 30ish gram heavier Garmin.
7200 grammish. I don't have the exact number.

And this is the bonus :P photo, me;

the fm066SL is one of my favorite framesets at the moment. Looks like a cervelo r5-just better!

good, solid build, consistent settings and decent appearance-i like that!
just bottle cages are not so great, in my opinion.

good ride,

Thanks for the answer.
I started to really like the frame. Even better than my beloved Tarmac.
Climb really well, light and also comfortable.

Bottle cages are from hongfu too, but I am not so happy neither.
They send one lefty and one righty cage.
I use my left hand while taking the bottle, and using the righty one is quite hard.
They also don't hold the bottles well.
I think I will change them quite soon.

i think you'll find both cages are the same? it's just when mounting on the down tube and seat tube, one is reversed.
you actually need a left AND a right to have them both usable as left hand cages in those positions!

Okay I felt a bit stupid.
I've never thought about the sides of the cage actually.
I put both on bike and saw one is wrong and said, okay one is wrong :)
They sent one left and one right.

I ordered DOVAL chainrings so now waiting for the post.
I will get 50-34 and aero rings.

Here is a representational photo :D

I will add photos when I get the rings, and write a small review.

I thought it was just me that had trouble with the reversed cage. I've had mine for a year but have given up on adapting and am going to a center split cage like a Mandible. The Hongfu cages are "side entry" but they don't take a bottle from the side, you need to hit 'em dead nuts on with the bottle, worst cage I've ever used. I've not had a bottle come free though.

I actually wouldn't call them side entry, since it is almost impossible to do it during the ride.
Side-exit is a better term I guess.

When you use your proper hand to take the bottle, it just comes so easy. Putting the bottle back is the same procedure like the regular bottle cages.
But as I mentioned before, I didn't enjoy them really much. They don't hold the bottle really strong, and also I need to use 2 different hand to take 2 different bottle.

The FD is quite close to the frame but there is no problem on setting or installing it.
I have 52-36 crankset. Maybe on 50-34, FD will be lower, and can cause problems.
There was no problem also with 53-39 neither.

60 grams heavier than my standard 52-36 chainrings with bolts.

The look is not the best, nor the weight. But ride is different and I kind of liked it. I think I will keep them on my bike, but keep the standard ones just in case too.

Not as good as original rings, but acceptable. It is still better than my old 6700 group and 6600 crankset.
It never missed shifting or dropped chain. Only a bit slower while going on big ring
