Excellent build, the jerk really knows what he is doing, I have become a fan. I think that looks like a very solid setup, M5 brakes, ventoux's, 595, campy, really rock solid extremely dependable parts. I was wondering what the new ventoux finish would look like and am still undecided on what I think about them, I think I like them though. Congratulations, should be fun to ride! Lastly, weight please?

13.5 lbs. I think I like the 6K weave better than the 3K. The weave really stands out. It's really hard to describe how awesome the Ventoux's ride.

There's a small magnet attached to the spoke right up against where the spoke enters the rim. I couldn't get my computer senser that high so I had to add the extra magnet.

The Ventoux's are exceptional wheels. Solid, very stiff laterally and they seem to roll by themselves when climbing. The combo frame/wheels are perfect together.

The bars are Reynolds Ouzo Pro's anatomical 42 cm. Best bars I've used to date.

It is amazing to hear such good reviews of these products especially from someone that already has a ton of amazing builds. They must truly be exceptional if you like them that much over your other great bikes. I saw that you have standard spoked carbon wheels on one of your other bikes, and read that you do a lot of climbing. Can you tell me what you think of each wheelset and which you would reccomend because I am looking at the differences between standard spoked and lightweights, and live in similar terrain, thanks.

No,

Mine are average for my Height. I wear a 33 length shirt. I just like longer stems on my bikes.

I measured 55cm although it's supposed to be 54.5. I may be a little off. I could probably go to a 140 length stem but the bike feels so sweet that I don;t need to change. My balance on the bike is spot on.
