Did not plan on getting another bike but I saw the price of this baby and simply could not resist. So I sold off my MTB, gave up the idea of upgrading my wheels, squeeze my kitty and bought it
Unfortunately, due to my budget constrains of $3800, I have to use a mix of new and 2nd hand components and training wheels. Only the frameset, shifters, front dee, BB, pedals, tyres, chain, cables, tubes, bar-tape are new. Current estimated cost is $3775.
Currently waiting for 11speed to come back from holidays so that I can get the shifters, front dee and BB.
A side question: The ITM Millenium Carbon stem, I understand it is carbon bonded to aluminium. What is its lifespan like? I have it for nearly 2 years (no crashes). Should I ditch it and get another stem (would be a $19 alloy stem though) instead?
