Very well done. The colors don't work for me but its not my bike. A painted ARX LTD would look great on your bike too.


If I did it again I would have gone for a complete ENVE front end - if only for the integration.

Trying to find a garmin mount, for instance was a real pain in the back end.

The specialized stems are a little thinner, and would have given me more real estate, but they are so skinny :/

New hoops thamks to Wheelworks in New Zealand. New ENVE 4.5s (with updated brake surface) laced to Chris King Ceramic R45 hubs. I am stoked!

You need to flip the front wheel because the Wheelworks decals do not match.

Just kidding, great build. :thumbup:

Thanks! I had the opportunity to race it two days ago. New wheels and tyres are sublime.

Love the bike even more!
Noticed you swapped from Alligator to the Jagwire cables. How do they compare?

You have a very good eye!

It's chalk and cheese.

I was getting considerable stretch from the wires on the alligator i link. In addition, the gold was chipping off, and starting to look a little unsightly.

The Jagwire Elites appear to be a superior product. They come with better instructions, and they do not stretch anywhere as near as much as the Alligators. Also, they come with neat little inclusions, like gold cable stops and neat frame protector rubbers (the Alligators had ugly orange frame protectors).

I have another bike with regular shimano cables, and rode it the other day and could not believe how superior, lighter and quicker the shifting is with the Jagwires.
