Evening all,

Removed the ENVE logo on my stem and seatpost for a more 'custom' look and really happy with the results... Started with 400 grit paper then 800, then 1200 then 1500 then rubbing compound then UV protection car wax polish.... I think it matches the frame tubes really well (but then i guess it should as these are also ENVE)! ?!?!?

Cheers,
Lig.

I've got a question about your derailleur setup. Are you using a 10sp cassette, do the shifters work well with the rear derailleur or have you moded the shifters to accept 11 speeds?

Hi LS,

Yeah I am running a 10 speed cassette, 10 speed shifters, 10 speed chain, 11 speed rear mech - it works perfectly, but then its the shifters that are doing the work.

Cheers,
Lig.

Stunning bike. Looks good without the ENVE logos.

LittleSprinter, those ERGOs are clearly 10 speed.

IMO looks better without the Enve logos. Well done; would also de-sticker the wheels. Very nice bike.

I might be a little weird. I do like the look of the stem. I also think it might look good having some Enve ghost graphics made.

Hi chaps and thanks...

I think you have a point there KB, I have 'blacked out' the LW logos before and i think your right I will ponder and maybe get onto it tomorrow.......

JMT - yeah - I just quite like having them totally 'unbranded' I would also then have to clear coat them as i dont like bare decals, they just look tatty quick - but i like your thinking....

Cheers,
Lig.

Thats strange tho, 11 speed uses a different pull ratio then 10, the derailler should not be 'perfect' with those shifters ?

Did you use a black permanent marker on the wheels?
