Nice bike, how does it ride compared to the two? Should be as aero as Madone, wondering if you can confirm that, at least feel-wise

Neutral wheels? Who says you should only be using these amazing wheels (Bora Ultras) on Campy drivetrain only? I don't get some of these bike stylists. I have a TCR SL with Dura Ace and Bora Ultra 35's and a Bianchi Oltre XR4, also with Dura Ace, and Bora Ultra 50's.

The F8 is a nice bike! :thumbup:

But you will have to take away all these spacers :wink:
And the stem looks quite short. Which size is the frame and which size is the stem?

That’s indeed a very short stem for that size!
Especially for an « aero » frame like the F8.

The F8 has a « short » top tube and I bet you will take out all these spacers and put a 120 or 130mm stem, right?

Yep, this just reaffirms my view on the Dogma frame. Curious to hear how it compares to your other bikes.
Fantastic looking bike!

Wether or not a frame is aero doesn't change his contact points on a bike. 90mm is perfectly normal on a 51, what are you talking about.

That paint scheme looks pretty nice markyboy, what year frame is that? The Boras bring the color scheme together nicely. Nice touch on the bar tape too.

FYI:

1/ If you go for an aero frame then you usually want to have a more aero position. And this is usually with a lower stack and a linger reach....hence with a smaller frame (lower stack) and a longer stem (longer reach).

2/ For a 51cm F8/F10 (they have a shorter top tube than the C60 for example) you would most probably use a 120-130mm stem without spacers. If you need a 90mm stem then you should have taken a smaller frame....
