great looking bike with great components!

How is the Nerius 36t small ring working out for ya? Still shifting and holding up well? I just got a set of Campy Chorus compact cranks and I am considering getting that chainring in a 36 just like you.

Does the finish match fairly well compared to the stock chainrings? Shift OK?

Guys - thanks for the kind words! :)

It's an unusual colour scheme, but I like it. Done 1500km on this bike this year so far and I've grown to really like it. Feels like an old friend and I have a lot of confidence in it. It's also an INCREDIBLY smooth riding frame.

I'll post an updated pic this weekend. Changes since photo:

- Deda Drittissimo post (to match bars, stem, tape and cages)
- Fiziki Antares Carbon saddle
- 130mm stem fitted in place of 120mm
- Scirroccos and Zipp 202s now available as well as Boras and Shamals

Pedals I use are Keo Tis. I'll weight the bike again this weekend with pedals. IIRC with the Shamals it's around the 7.1kg mark with pedals and around 6.9kg with Boras and 6.7kg ish with Zipps. Weights to follow!

36t Nerius ring on the Super Record crank shifts perfectly. The finish is different though - I'll try and post some better pics at the weekend. That said, an inner ring with a slightly different finish is no disaster IMO!

@mdnpod - frame and fork are T800 full carbon
