Picked up a enve 1.0 fork for the caad9. From what others say it should stiffen the front end up and get the build down in the 14.2 range. Also a Danny Shane jersey.

Do you suffer more when you train, or cannot train?

Hey -- I pulled off more than 0.9 grams of old adhesive after taking the photo.

Soma Highway 1 compact-bend bars I removed to install these were 304 grams. I went from 40 cm shallow drop to 38 cm medium drop ergo and lost 71 grams.

That's the exact same build I am wanting to do. What are you doing for wheels?

Have a set of Hed Belgium Plus wheels that I'll be using on it. At least initially. DT Swiss front, PowerTap G3 rear. Schwalbe One Tubeless tires w/ Stan's.

The bike isn't going to be locked up outside or anything. Just want something that's not as flashy as I ride into work through some of the less savory parts of San Francisco and then take the train home.

Damn straight. The crackhead muggers in the less savory parts of S.F. will quickly pick up on the difference between Ultegra and Dura Ace. And being as your commuter bike is Ultegra, they won't bother messing with you.
