Nice bike and like the bikes paint. Your saddle looks pointing up way to much for my taste and it looks you need a different seat post. The saddle clamp should be more centered on the seat rails.

Hi ianeverton,
the painsheem is realy nice.
How do the Zero Gravity work if you compare to campa skeleton?

You should think of an other wheelset...even though the scuers fit well.
The bartape job is horror.

But I like the white seatpost.
Enjoy your bike. :thumbup:

The Zero Gravity brakes work really well thanks, however probably not quite as good as Campag SR, but I like the look of the Zeros better.

What wheelset would you suggest ?
What is wrong with the bar tape ?

Cheers

You should consider a seatpost with more setback.Saddle is clamped way forward on the rails!.

Frame is beautiful :thumbup:

I'm a little surprised your LBS did sent you home with this saddle setup.
Enjoy your ride.

If that amount of saddle setback, spacer stack and stem length are your correct setup, I think you should be riding a bigger frame... :noidea:

I could have had this size or sized up but as I like a lot of seatpost showing went for this size.

The saddle just needs adjusting as not rode it as of yet.

I like the look of the Zeros as well.

I would go for a fullcarbon tubular rim. Tubulars ride much nicer than clinchers and the system weight ist lighter any way.
My reynolds 46 are by far the fastest wheels I ever rode. But I think Boras are allways a good choice.

The electricle tape should not touch the bar at all.

Fix the saddle position and the bartape and please give us a new photo.

i am looking at this lovely build and thinking the wheels would be better suited on a canyon or suchlike but somehow not 'classy' enough for the rest of this. even a set of 'cheap' Mavic reflex CDs would be perfect. thats my first thought but i except it is overly critical and i am sure the bike feels really super to ride on these wheels, so please ignore the first thing that popped into my head when i saw the photo :roll:

Yes, Reflex and Record hubs. All time classics. Would be perfect.

what do you think of the new headset? Ease of adjustment etc? I saw your bike on Mike's website. I just paid Mike for a frame, hopefully he will get over to pick it up soon.
