Yeah good luck. Really I mean.

Let us know if you find a source - I suspect it's a common problem.

Thanks!

Nothing new on the bike, just took it to the local crits over the weekend (raced early, then watched the other categories).

Yes! Do you race in New England? I'm headed to Longsjo this weekend.

I'm in central mass, used to live in the Pioneer Valley. I have't raced in several years. Keep telling myself I should get back into cross and mtb, but haven't. I recognize some of the locations you've posted: Quabbin lookout tower, fields in Deerfield from the D2R2, and Greenfield.

Hello,
May Indeed, I actually got to ride it home from the shop in Boston.
It was great getting to work closely with them on it.

That looks ace.

I'm not normally a fan of the Sram Red chain rings (except perhaps the latest etap black rings) but they suit your bike really well. Nice.

Seeing RyanH's filthy new build made me feel like posting an updated build list on this thing - only a few things at this point (derailleurs, handlebars) are the same as when I bought it. A few bits have been replaced like-for-like (cassette, cables).

Got it to 16.9 lbs. but honestly, I'm a bigger guy and don't care too much about getting it lower. I have a Hylix seatpost, lighter saddle and an UNO stem in my parts bin, but the slightly heavier Thomson/Brooks option just feels better to me.

Only changes this summer have been swapping Veloflex Master 25's for Vittoria Corsa and I snapped my Barfly in the crash back in May, so for a couple months just rode with the stock mount and recently threw a cheap SRAM Quickview on.

In a ridiculous act of vanity I decided to mimic a few others and see what it would look like with the Red touches "blacked out".

Stenciled, cut and applied vinyl tape to the shifters, brake levers and cranks.

I like the way it looks, but if I decide I'm noticing the feel of it too much or see any peeling I'll just go back to red.
