thanks for the compliments!
now to ride it and get some miles.

meanwhile, roadtesting the vincero design bottle and mount. initial feel is that the magnet is too strong. good to secure your bottle of course, but there will be time where your bottle scrapes your frame first rather before youre able to slot it in because of the magnet pull. maybe it takes getting used to.

OP, may I ask you something. What headset are you running in the frame? I too have a Bura and have had to locktite the bearings into the frame as they move a lot and make a horrible cracking sound. This was on the advice of my LBS as the mechanic there had the same issue with his Time frame and it was solved by this method. Have you had any issues? I did bring it up with the guys at Neil Pryde but it wasn't acknowledged.

@wiggins,
stock neilpryde headset. slots in just right and no movement even if run without a topcap.
locktiting bearings may just be a band-aid solution to an inherently ill-fitting headset.

Yeah, that's what I thought. I may try a different headset before looking at sending the frame back for a swap. Kind of wish I could fit a King in there!

Hope you enjoy your ride with the Bura.
Like or don't is not what I can question.
I have read all posts and have only to ask: Is everybody ok with the positioning of the rear brake cable entry and IMO the much too wide gap
between TT and rear brake cable routing level?
This is solved much better by bunch of other manufacturers.

thanks krull!
bura- yes. as ive said in my first post, it could have been better if it was actually routed internally. and youre right, if external, theres quite a gap bet toptube and cable.
but it wasnt a dealbreaker for me obviously.

@farmlim sorry omitted your comment on top of the photo.
What I meant is ,even if the routing is external this could have been solved much better and probably will be changed by NP in the future.
BTW , NeilPryde has grabbed my user name without permission. :-)

Nice looking bike!
Have you had any chance to riding the 42's yet? If so how do you like them?
