The crank blends pretty well with the frame. Nice :thumbup:

Curious how you will find the S-Works Toupe saddle. I was tempted by one, until I saw it in person and realised the padding is basically painted on!

Thanks! I was thinking of getting some Praxis rings to save some weight, but I'm not sure if it would look or function as well as the original chainrings.

I tried on a pair of new Castelli Bodypaint 2.0 shorts and went on my first long ride on the Foil today. I finally found a combination my backside agrees with.
Plus my Toupe weighed in at a 110 grams :up: Some people have said the S-Works feels significantly different from the normal Toupe ... I remember trying a normal one a few years ago, but didn't love it. I guess I prefer minimal padding on the saddle and more on the shorts?

Oh please do. I would be curious to know how the new Yaw FD would perform on Praxis rings as I'm also contemplating on buying Praxis. If you do, please report back here. Thanks!

Yeah, I've been contemplating switching ever since that one member weighed the outer ring at a 150 grams! I'll definitely post back here if I decide to switch.

Before you do, I would doublecheck that praxis rings are compatible with the new quarq, as I don't believe they worked properly with the previous one.

Thanks for the warning. I'll shoot an email to Quarq or Praxis to find out.
