Looking mighty stellar there with those new wheels. Can't go wrong with CK, and Enve.

She's doing. Got here back down to 13lbs dead the other day. I rode with guy last Thursday who was riding a Evo Ultimate, going to ride with him again tomorrow. That is one bad ass piece of equipment.

I have a super six and was looking at the c50 wheels - does it ride well with them.

7900 shifters, 7900 RD, DA 9000 brake and shift cables with Alligator Ilink cables. I also hadn't touched my Enve wheels since I bought them. Last weekend I wanted to see what tubes she had put in them. Come to find out I had been on tubes that were 135g each! threw on some ultra light tubes at 80g/tube as well as replaced the rim tape with veloplugs. After the 7900 install, I'm hoping to see 14.6 or better!

Lovely bike and a great write up.

7900 is a lovely set up, worth researching how to set up front changer as they can be a bit finicky regarding cable tension.

Quick update. Got my DA 7900 in. Got a KILLER Deal. Not sure if the alligator ilink cables will work right now because I dont have the liners needed and Fairwheel is out of stock. Will probably just use my shimano Cable housing this time around and will keep an eye out for the liners, then switch them out in a couple months. I hear the DA9000 cables can be difficult to work with.

Finally a black RD instead of the silver Ulterga I had. The black will look so much better with my bike

Nope. I got the Shifters and Derailleur from a guy on another forum. Screaming deal and they are like new. He said he used them maybe 4 times because he got more involved with Tri racing. After selling my Ultegra shifters and RD, I was able to only pay a difference of $60. Not to shabby!

Thanks! I like it also, but when I see some of the other bikes on here, it makes me wish I had a bit more money to drop into it.
