Nah.... not like that anymore! ;-) I cut my fork and didn't know what height it would be so I placed it like that. I have 30mm now....

Very Nice!
I've got a PF ZX3 that I ride quite a bit and I'm very happy with it.
Pedal Force seems to be a very good value, and the frames are light enough to be a good WW foundation.

Someone stole my signature...

Nice!

I'm building one with Sram Force (Shifters, Crankset BB30, RD, FD, Cassette (12-27) and Chain). Using Rival brake calipers.

PF sent me the wrong Handlebars and didn't ship the seat post I ordered. An e-mail is heading their way.

The spacer selection on the custom configuration page is confusing. I thought it included a 10mm and a 5mm but only a 5mm was shipped.

I need to order 3 10mm spaces. Not sure I am going to use 30mm of spacers. I currently have 30mm on my Trek 2.3.

I'm thinking about putting my initials on the down tube using dark gray letters just slightly darker than the 3k carbon weave. Maybe put a shadow effect on them. Still designing that aspect. I will probably end up leaving it naked.

It seems to measure a little large. I went with a 56cm. My 2.3 is a 54cm.

You'll definitely love it! If the geo of your Trek is almost iddentical to your PedalForce, keep the same fit! But I dropped 10mm on my fit even though the geo of my old bike was more confort than performance!

How does it ride?

Did you use loctite on the BB30 bearings?

I have a spare set of BB30 bearings so I thought I would just grease it initially and see how it holds up against the dreaded BB30 creak that I read so much about.
