Nice build!

Can u give me the input on why u choose the Potenza levers over the Chorus ones?

And can u tell me more about how u feel that the brakes are working.

I´m looking at a simular setup but a diffrent frame, so were keen on knowing how it works!

Thanks

Thanks!

Not sure I understand your question - why would I opt for Chorus levers? I honestly never thought about it, and just bought all three together - and I really like the new style droopy thumb lever. The Potenza shifters have a much less definite shift feedback to my old Centaur, though. Not necessarily a bad thing.

Brakes feel fine with Campag levers. They were a bit of a pain to set up, but now they're there I'm having no issues other than some slight squaling. Not sure they stop any better than my old Centaur rim brakes with SwissStop pads though.

They will sure stop better in the rain.

So u wanted the Potenza shifter because u Think the shifter button sits at a better Place?

I´m between a full Chorus Group or a mix match like yours. I hear that the Chorus up-shift can be hard to push in the drops.

I got the Potenza shifters because I was buying Potenza derailleurs. I didn't even consider mix-matching my shifters.

The thumb levers are designed to work most effectively in the drops. If your bars are set up properly they are easier to shift than Shimano/SRAM.

Very nice have been eyeing up a black one of these for a while

How are the mudguard fixings? And is it a full carbon steerer?

Don't suppose you got a weight for the frame and fork?

Cheers!

Full carbon yes, of course - it's a pricey frameset!

The front guard fixings use a bolt-on 3D printed plastic adapter. Other than this I've not really looked at them much as it's summer! 8)

Lovely build. Must add a build thread for mine one of these days, it's eerily similar, down to the the Spyre SLC and the 3T cockpit.

How's the hub sound on those Novatec CXD's? I read somewhere they're silent. Sadly this is the only thing stopping me from getting a pair at the moment..

Beautiful bike. Is it yours I see locked outside my neighbour's house in Oxford?

Would definitely recommend going for some TRP Hy/RD brakes - far better than the static pad cable disc brakes. If you do, definitely read the manual for the proper setup instructions, works way better if you follow it to the T.
