hi everyone.....

opportunity came up for me to change to the Mondrian (from the 586) so i took it (of cos i had to :wink: )

groupset - SR11
Chainring - FSA (opted out of the look chainring as it had the metallic sound when shifting which i find uncomfortable. The FSA had no sound at all)
Handlebar - Deda Presa
Pedals - Time Titan (i know....i know)
Wheels - Bora 2 / Bora 80
(the bora80 arrived last week)

Will be switching the stickers for the bora 2 to the dark label version (but not sure if its the right move as i love how the original sticker looks) as i want the colors to match for both set of wheels.
Running different colored wheels looks really funny!

anyway...here are the pictures of both setup.

had a little bit of spare time last night and decided to get down to changing the col of my bora 2 stickers.

i actually thought of leaving just the CULT stickers on the wheels after looking at it. looks good actually....but went on with the pasting of the dark label nonetheless.

will take pics of the new col scheme on the bikes later with the different combo setup.

Looks good without the decals. No doubt what they are, either...

Nice handlebars on the TT bike. Straight extensions are the only extensions allowed on TT bikes :thumbup:

Good amount of saddle to bar drop too 8)

yeah....love them too. started out using other wheels but once the boras were on...i knew they were keepers.

my previous handlebar, also straight extensions, doesn't feel as good as this. the drop in height for the base bar is really good when i need to power out off saddle. and yes....only straight extensions for me. :D

Really sick bikes. Hoping to build a TTbike next weak with Super Record, but not with a Lookframe.

I went for it!

everything is already up and running and some fine tuning needs to be done. But so far so good. Precise, fast as confirmed by most users. Shifting for the front D is just amazing. I can only smile.

However, its a headache thinking where i should mount the battery but it will sit there for now till something else comes about. Had to custom a seat tube bottle cage adapter so that i can mount 2 cages as its a no go for my frame (XS). I might mount the battery below the bottom tube but its a wait and see for the time being. let me get the smile off the face first.
