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.
