Does Deda Superzero come also in 28.0 mm?

No just 27,2 and 31,6 according to Deda's website.

Yea, for this size a 73.5* STA isn't that steep. But for me it is. I normally am on a 73* or 73.25*. Not much of a change, but a bit steeper.

Thanks for the posting of the Zero post's weight. That is pretty porky! I do like the looks of the Super Zero though. It has 21mm of setback, but I could probably make due with that.

Anyone know as actual weight on the Super Zero post? They say 166g, but it's Deda... so of course that has to be taken with a grain of salt.

How about actual weight of a Record post in 31.6mm? I've seen people claim anywhere from 240 grams to 195 grams for that post.

Got the frame and built it up with parts on hand for now. Threw some bad weather tubulars on there for the build up.

I put an EC90 post on it, and I don't think it looks too bad. Clashes a bit with the Deda bar/stem, but the colors do match. (Still thinking a Record post might be better.) Put the Centaur 09 shifters that I had been using on my CX bike so I could try them out on the road.

Also installed the Zero G brakes to see what you guys thought of them on the bike. They seem to look alright, but I keep thinking Record might be better to tie it together.

Thanks! Yes, it's a 56, with a 140mm stem. I'm debating putting a 130 on it though. The new Campy hoods add a bit more reach than the pre 2009 style that I had with this stem/bar before. Gonna have to wait until I can get it out on the road to see for sure though.

Threw a King Ti cage on it to see how it would look.

What do you think?

I think I like the classic look of them. But, Elites would work well too.

Love those tires on that build. Classy.

Get some new pads for the front, change the seatpost to Record and you are set.

I think the Elite cage would look best with that frame.

HA! Thanks.. people keep telling me that. Actually, those are just the wheels that were closest at hand when I was building it up. Not that it will look bad with our Reynolds or Zipps on it :) But, I think it is fitting to have those tires on there for now.

I'm actually pretty excited, I think I can get some 27mm ones on there. I've got some FMBs that I've been dying to try out.

Record post is definitely going on there.

Thanks for teh comment on the bottle cage. I'm going to try and borrow an Elite to see how it looks. I actually just swapped on a wheelset that has Record hubs, silver DT Rev spokes, Mavic Reflex rims on there and then the Ti cage looks really good in person. Ugh... decisions, decisions :D

I know what you mean. I have the Reflex CD rims on Record huibs and Dt spokes- and the King ti cages look great with those wheels. I also have the Deda silver stem and bars and Super Record chainrings have the hard ano titanium color to them. Those ti colored accent work together.

Your bike has more black and exposed carbon weave so I think the black Elite cages woudl be more pro.

$.02 isnt worth much these days.

Still waiting on the seatpost.

Rides great.... so smoooooth. I got some serious "Belgian toothpaste" on the ride from the constant $hit eating grin I had. :D

..... I have one on order, as I mentioned more than once. It just hasn't arrived yet. But that isn't going to stop me from riding it in the interim. :D
