Finally completed my Evo build. 13.61 lbs. Not the lightest but I am happy with it... maybe when I get the $$$ for a superlight wheelset..

Looking good!! Love the white frame even though it is the heaviest of the Evo's. :beerchug:

Go for the rebuild.....could be done cheaply with some CX-rays and BikeHubStore hubs and you'd be pretty set. (However hub and spoke weight are pretty inconsequential in real-world riding....but don't say that out loud on this forum!) :unbelievable:

Wow nice bike!

Do you prefer the Nokon cables with DA ?
I didn't like it because with my bike it doesn't shift that smooth

Hey how's the TRPs with the DA7900? I'm thinking of going down that road myself.

I am actually using Alligator ilinks. They work quite well together. I have worked with Nokons before on my wife's bike and I fond them harder to install/work with than th iLinks.


The Trp960s are quite good. They modulate as well as the ultegra 6700s I used to use. Haven't tried DA brakes though so not sure how they compare.

quaman26, oh i meant how the TRPs work with the DA levers, because of the different pull ration (unless I'm confused).

The TRP960s work with the DA levers, no problem. I have used it on both the Ultegra 6700s and now the DA 7900 levers. Both works fine.

Nice weight. There is too much red for my taste but I'm sure it rides beautifully so enjoy it

You are right about the red. I think I went a bit too far with it. I am going to start by changing the bar tape to black and see from there. Thanks

Hi,

What is the stem angle of the climax handlebar?
And what is your review on it?
Thanks
