With my Contis I put half a bottle of Stans sealant in each tubular, run 3 sets right to the canvas without a flat. Adds a little weight, but well worth the benefit of not getting a flat so far.

Very nice Nismosr, the new build does look very nice but in my opinion i prefer the previous build with the white saddle matching the stem and bar tape and tan tyres with shallow Hyperons.

How does it ride now with the Bora's and 2015 SUper Record compared to the Hyperons and 2014 Super Record? Do you notice any difference?

Looks nice. But I prefer the white saddle/tape combo. I thinks i just looks so much nicer, classier more euro.
It would be better if sloping geometry to IMHO.

just a sensational looking bike. be interested to hear what you think of the different wheel sets you've run on it. lightweight, bora, hyperons, ambrosio's.

So far I've only had 1 ride on the new group, but noticeable improvement is the front shifting it's smoother and faster shifting from small to big ring than the previous model.
and I know the manual says use the adjuster barrel but I skip that one and tune it the way I do the older model. I had Bora's before the Ultra Bora older version and I love it, sold it to get the LW which is stiffest wheelset I've use so far. Hyperon are not bad either Ive had them for about 5 years now and Broke a rear spoke last year on a climb (195lb) I find them stiff enough for my weight, never noticed any flex on them compare to my 808 rear on my S5. the Ambrosio with Veloflex is smooth - comfortable wheelset.
