Wow, quite nice. Perhaps a 100mm x 60mm rise fixed position stem would suit your fit, too?

Hi SD

I use the 100mm stem at the moment. Is the thing to raise it the small adapter? I want the whole front end to be cleaner hence the bar change..It would mean no need to run adaptors on the frame.

I'll get some more pics tomorrow with race wheels on..

Wow, this is awesome!
I see you have the tt version (thicker & stiffer) of the Osymetric rings. Are spacers needed with these or were you able to just slap them on? I ask because I have the normal version (pretty thin) and I'm thinking spacers are needed between the rings to avoid chain rub, which I have in spades at the moment.

The front mech was set up by a friend with no spacers. There is however one on the mech mount to move the mech back for more clearance. 5mmthick. We also had to file the mech mount slightly to get more clearance.

The front mech is preloaded slightly for better/quicker shifting.

Shifting is perfect with zero rubbing.

I have the same set up on my road bike and again no rubbing. You just have to be careful on set up.

What size rings are you running?

As nice as it is and im sure it is very very fast but It does look a bit like something from wacky races .Im sure I saw Professor Pat Pending riding it.

I have a set of 54/42s. They're 2mm thick. 1mm less than my Rotor Q rings and surely the reason for the chain rub between rings when in the small ring.

Sweet! If you could take some pics of the single parts and maybe the inside of the pods, that would be awesome.

I have the Tula and don't get how the new one works.

Thanks in advance.
