Very good balance of flash and subtlety - actually perfect!

So after 3 months, this bike has been phenomenal. Just surpassed all expectations.

I recently took it to the alps for a little bit of late season training, i enjoyed it a lot and will be doing a pre-season training there as its helped my legs a fair bit.

Heres some photos from the trip.

And heres me at the top of the col du galibier 75km into the second day, i was enjoying myself a lot more than some of my heavier team-mates, thats for sure! haha

I fitted the ultegra chainset for one reason only, it was the only compact i had, i wasn't racing up these mountains so i didn't need the bigger gears, spin to win!

i hope everyones summer has had some good weather with some good riding!
