Here is mine. Dirty bar tape but that is what you get when you ride it everyday I guess.

there's dirty and there's... uhm... dunno what to call this...
rather put some black bartape on this, you do have a black saddle, so it would actually look better also!
Nice bike!

Sweet build!

I agree though this would look better with black bar tape to complete the stealth look.

what pedals are those? old looks? :?

Yeah I might have to put on black bar tape. No matter how much you clean the bike the white bar tape always get dirty and riding it to work and at lunch each day means you get the bar tape dirty really quick. I will try out the black bar tape on the next round.

Yes they are the old LOOK's. I have been wanting to make the jump to Speedplay for some time but just havent had the time to get down to the bike shop to get new ones. The bike shop always gives me a hard time about my 'old school' pedals. Oh well. This frame is the best riding frame I have ever had. Highly recommended.

That is a really nice build. The best of all worlds- UT cranks are light and stiff, force shifters are so comfortable in the hands, white SLR and white bar tape with level bars. Super sweet wheels without the decals. Great tires fi you pump them up everyday. Nice job!

Could you tell us how the campy front Derailluer with SRAM shifters performs without the trim function?

The Campy on the front works just fine without the trim function. I can shift easaly 9 of the 10 in the back. So no issues there. No trim makes shifting upfront even faster (at least it looks like that). I understand the RED may get the trim function and may be a reason to change.

Campy cranks are really very good. Feel stiff, which again may be a reason why they work well with the front derr. No wobbeling in the front.

Bars are Syntace Carbon.

Tires came with the wheels and indeed need some (a lot of) air every single day I ride. The combination of the red brakepads is a terrible combination for the ears. Makes a lot of noice (howling), but makes you stop very easy. Will have to change to other pads soon, to avoid that my fellow triders know to well when I am on the brakes.

Super bike to ride!
