Thanks that's very kind!
I really like the main colour now.
I find the frame a bit 'busy' if I'm honest, too much going on with words, acronyms and graphic lines. I've considered sanding some off but it has grown on me over time. Plus I can see the expression on my wife's face already if I even mentioned taking sandpaper to it!

Good luck with your build :beerchug:

I can see how they'd be great if you had long cable runs but with mine being a small size the runs are short, so probably one of my least favourite purchases. Plus the combination of the aero bars and cabling up for 'driving on the left' makes the rear particularly tricky but I could have been doing it badly.

Now they're on though... the difference is minimal if I'm honest.
Look good though!

Do you have a breakdown on how you got the headset saving? Just wondering if there are some cheap grammes there


Depends what expander you have already. The current model of KP017 weighs 16g and is roughly £17. The older model is about 50g. You probably already have the lighter version. Looks like this

Nice looking build. Can't go wrong with orange and black!

You're right, I have the lighter one already. I see from other builds that there's options for going lighter still but only by a handful of grammes.

Thank you too :beerchug:
Mine supersix is evo in glossy black, I would like to change it but everyone tells me it is beautiful and the trend for black bikes will come back sooner or later :D
I think I will have to introduce myself and my bike in close future (when I will find a little more time to do that).

Cheers!
