Maybe its the whole "photo on the internet" thing because those boras look mighty shallow on a frame of that size and girth. I almost wonder how shallow wheels will look like.

Very nice. I would switch the stem to sth with -10 degrees. Bars also look somewhat strange but maybe that's just me. CarbonTi and WR is a great Choice. I ordered the same on Tuesday. Alpha 43 rims bring that down <1,000g.

I have 2 sets of Bora Ones (50 tubular and 35 clincher) and they are really nice. What wheelset are you waiting on?

I'm waiting on a set of WR Compositi carbon tubs (51mm matching 3k weave) laced to Carbon Ti hubs. The Boras will go back on my RXR

My new WR Compositi tubulars are finally built and on their way. The set weighs 1,235g (560g front - 675g rear). The wheels should match the cockpit's matte 3k weave perfectly

That WR compositi stem looks beefy, how does it feel out on the road?

It's very stiff. The Protos is much stiffer than my Time RXR overall so it's hard to attribute to one particular component.

The WR parts are well crafted. Highly recommend them

There are other models that align better with the C60 and I believe they also offer custom paint

This is a really lovely bike. Good job.

Slight hijack, Anyone know if WR sell to the UK or have a dealer? Can't seem to get website to work.
