Went out for a 50km spin yesterday. Felt so good I tacked on an extra 100km. First 150km ride I've had time for in years. It was AWESOME! Except for the car crash that nearly took me out and the sunburn I came home with.

Yes they are. Unfortunately I can't run them on this bike... not enough clearance for the di2 wiring with a 30mm crank spindle. I am limited to a 24mm spindle so am using a standard Dura Ace crank now.

So, for only the second time since owning the bike, I had to adjust the front fork headset. I think it is the only downside to this bike. I love the clean look but it was a 30 minute process to remove the front brake, adjust the compression, and reinstall/center the brake. Fortunately it seems to be a bi-annual occurrence so it's not that big a deal.

Only other complaint is the finish I chose for the bike. It is not holding up well. I will likely have the bike stripped and repainted when I get back to the U.S. later this year.

Please feel free- the more people who see it, the better the chance that we'll raise a meaningful amount of money for Rob.

I just read this. That is very bad news and I will link to his and help out. I have one of his amazing bikes and hope he gets back on his feet as quickly as possible. Great guy and great talent.

Ugh! My bike seems to have died. Di2 is completely dead. I tried charging it overnight with no results. And of course, tomorrow is a holiday. I leave Saturday morning for 5 months and was so looking forward to having my bike with me. Blah! Happy New year my ass.

California Bicycles Inc. in La Jolla, CA built me a brand new custom internal battery in time for my trip. Unfortunately, upon arrival, I discovered the front shifting was gone. Turns out the front derailleur has failed and was drawing on the old battery enough to kill it. New battery is fine and holding a charge with the front derailleur disconnected. Now I have to find another 7970 front derailleur.

It looks like there was more going on than just a bad derailleur. The fault might have corrupted the system. Bike is on its way to CalBike who will disassemble it and troubleshoot the system. While it's apart I am having it repainted. Depending on my budget I may upgrade to the new 9070 di2.

I managed to score a 9070 di2 group (including cranks) for $1400.00. My bike is enroute to CA where it will be disassembled, stripped, repainted, and rebuilt with the new group.
