nice bike you got there.

I like the "color theme" and it fits very well together. but in my eyes it will be better with a white saddle at the Focus -But that is just a small ting :)

How is it on the road?

noah: This is my first carbon bike and i came from a 58 alloy frame(dam bike shop jiped me) to this 54 carbon frame(proper size for me).
Ive only ridden it about 3 times so tyres are just starting to get sticky, so atm its twitchy and responsive.
Yea i dunno if i need to "break" the saddle in, but its uncomfortable atm so could be looking at a different one.

tarz: nah I only picked it up this week so haven't raced it yet, but will be out on Tuesday. Yea i know the guy that rides the same frame/colour scheme but hes in A grade :roll:

My rear wheel made for a year 12 project.
60mm Chinese carbon clinchers
DT Swiss 240s hub and DT Aerolite spokes
This is the setup i will be using to get use to the the wheel. (Fulcrum racing 5's for everyday training)

What can i do about the spoke heads not fitting flush into the hub flange(NDS)? it was hard to even fit the spoke through the holes during lacing :noidea:
