best regards,

nothing to get excited about, just, again, for the sake of completeness: frame has been repainted a year ago. i am really happy with the result, got a bit bored with the original colour, but love it with its new appearance.

nice side effect: frame-weight reduced to 848 gramm, the 3t fork weighs 312 gramm with the insert, the complete frameset with all parts now ca 1270 gramm. not bad for a 2006/2007 frame!

Like your bike! Is the fork ud carbon and the frame 3k? Like it with the high profile wheels and black bar tape. I see a different saddle on all pictures. Hard time to find the right one?

Hi,
thank you. just a modest, simple race-bike, but i enjoy the ride. ;-)

yes, the fork is ud, the frame 3k (i guess). frame does not match the fork, but the seatpost does! ;-)

i am changing saddle from time to time. but i abolished the slr, although the prologo scratch has bad prospects. ssm zoncolan is currently my favorite, further i use ssm era k and prologo nago evo (....and on tt, dash stage.9)

best regards,

Are the stickers you are now using Red or Orange? From the pictures it looks orange. try to match the color red of the Sram red shifters and please use black bar tape. Red will be to much of a color clash.

Hi,
the stickers are red, just on pictures, it looks like orange. the plan was, as you said, to match the sram-parts, this did not work at all. ;-)
but i like this light-red, maybe i try to adapt the sram-parts to the existing stickers.
just ordered black bartape, you are right, red would be "overdone".
thank you, best regards,
