Looks very nice. You pointed out the saddle issue, which is good (have you thought about trying the Bontrager RXL Carbon WSD saddle?).

two questions: why did you choose the Tektro rear brake over the DA 9010 or stock Bontrager, and how did you get the Stages to work with the lower brake (that may answer question number one, now that I think about it)?

Light and aero, can't beat that! Hope she enjoys it!

Yeah picked up a paradigm xxx the other day.. Nice saddle at 140g even with the width at 148mm. Also getting an fizik Antares 00 in the 140ish size.. Trying to replace my SLR flow that is not working out for me on longer rides.

Her oura pro is 143 and not a bad fit for me... Which prompted me to start my own search. First time I rode her bike on a familiar route I set all kinds on new PRs on strava ;) had to get better them all next week on my look695
