Hi guys,

After a lot of deliberating I have decided to go out and purchase the Hakkalugi in Phlemish Green.
Was just wondering what people would change from the standard build.

Frame Ibis carbon
Fork Alpha Q CX20, carbon
Rims/Wheels Easton Circuit
Tires Michelin Jet, 700 x 30c
Crankset SRAM Force
Chainwheel 50/34
Front Derailleur SRAM Force
Rear Derailleur SRAM Force
Rear Cogs SRAM Force, 10-speed: 12-27
Shifters SRAM Force Double Tap
Handlebars Ibis
Stem Ibis
Brake Levers SRAM Force
Brakes TRP Eurox CNC cantilevers
Saddle San Marco Zolcolan, Titanox rails
Seat Post Ibis

I will opt for the SRAM Force which is a good all rounder, and I will most def. change the wheels to Mavic Ksyriums, but not too sure if anything else is worth changing. Oh and I do like Dugast tires.

I am consisdering going for disc brakes at the front, any opinions?

Thanks in advance,

Mike

It should come with an Edge/Enve fork not Alpha Q.

If you're going to race you want tubulars and switch the chain rings to something like 48/38, 46/36 or whatever works for your courses.

I think worthwhile disc brakes are at least two years away. I wouldn't bother with them yet.

The stock bar/stem/post should be easy weight savings and then as you've already mentioned wheels. Everything else seems to be reasonably light weight.

I agree, proper cross chainrings and tubulars are a must if you're going to be racing.
