That is very nice indeed. How are you finding flex/speed wise?

This ^^^. Also, what size is your frame?
I loved my Nanolight, but ultimately swapped it in because the back end was flexing too much :cry:

Thanks for the complements! :D

I couldn't wait to build it up, so I forgot to put the frame on the balance.. :?

The frame is a size small

At first I thought the saddle was a bit to wide, but after a few rides it actually feels comfy, especially in a low triathlon position..

Compared to my previous bike (duratec cool r14) this frame is a more responsive.. So I will not complaign about rigidity. Can't wait to test it in my first triathlon! :)

Two downsides about the frame:
- the mat finish is really a pain in the ass to clean
- water that comes in the frame after a rainy ride.. Comes out very slowly (like 2 rides further)

Hi

Nice looking bike :).

Do you have the weight without the wheels?

Looking to buy a bike with similar specs, but with DA C24 wheels, and would I like to estimate a approximate weight before buying.

Regards
Erik

Why not?!

Perhaps his budget didn't stretch to a super expensive frame and the other stuff too but it's not like the N2A is a supermarket bike, it's just not a 3 grand superbike frame.

Personally I think it all looks great.
