Yummy! But that is quite a bit of tilt on the hoods...

Like it. Think that seat post might cause some trouble we you jump on it a few times.

i like the hoods high on my cross bike......just my thing. i have actually used the KCNC post for 6 months now...even on MTB trails and it has been fine! i only weigh 145 and ride smooth, maybe that helps

IMO you have much more control when in the drops. Especially for descents.

Nice bike :)

How do you have your temporary cage mounted? I have a X-Night with no holes for a cage and I am looking for a solution.

Nice ride, but I'm definitely with the person above that the handlebars are weird, and I know they would never do in the races around my neck of the woods.

why are they weird.....the drops are just trimmed down. i have raced on the bars for 2 years now in the elite division. i have never used the drops in a cross race, so why not save 40 grams!! :P

Yeah, I feel much more stable in the drops on fast bumpy descents.
