Frame and fork: Ridley Noah
Groupset: SRAM Force
Wheels: Xentis Mark 1 TT
Pedals: TIME RXS carbon
Saddle: Fizik Arione CX braided
Stem: Deda Zero 100

I did a 100km ride on the bike yesterday and the bike did great.

The most spectacular thing about this bike are the wheels. The feel very comfortable, even more so than my 36 spoke Mavic Open Pro's. At first I actually thought I had a flat tire. Rough roads are really easy to ride with these wheel. The aerodynamic advantage of the wheels can only be felt at over 30km/h, but is significant.

I can't say if the same goes for the frame (with the R-flow slots). The frame is nice and stiff and the looks and the paintjob are amazing. Overal a really nice ride. Now all I have to wait and see how the bike behaves in crosswinds.
