Arrived Saturday morning, ordered when the order book opened on August 1st. Think it must be one of the first few in the UK.

Rides like a dream, DA 9070 is a lot smoother than Ultegra 6700 as well. Didn't expect as much of a difference.

Weight 7.2kg, considering some lighter tubular wheels

The seatpost is called the "COBL GOBL-R"

It's an epic build list and I'm sure it's an epic ride but a). That seatpost is gopping and b). The black and silver of the full DA demands some silver (rather than red) on the frameset.

If the man wants a "Koch Goblr" seatpost, let him have one! :shock: :oops: :lol: :noidea:

Nice looking ride! Those wheels are the dogs, so don't let these fashion weenies convince you to change them! :beerchug:

One day someone will explain to me why everyone in the UK (and in some other places) thinks that a dog's testicles are such a great thing. Here they are just.... a dog's testicles. :noidea:

Personally I like the seatpost design. And if it smooths out the road then great. State of the roads in the UK I think it's a reasonable addition and fits the purpose of the bike. But for me the wheels are an odd choice. Personally I'd go for something a bit lower profile.
