Thanks @MIller76. Agreed that the Highroad color palette was dubious. I tried for a while to convince myself it was cool...

Black is super functional and always looks clean. Timeless.

Hi @grid256 :

There is a neat custom silver shim in the lower stack with a 2degree rise.

Hey @tetonrider :

Love your SHIV by the way. Your Nokon solution inspired mine. Agreed I have some work to do there.

The angled pads are not an issue for me. Very comfortable setup.

Yes, USAC has a very liberal enforcement of the UCI tech rules. I saw some very dubious decisions in the minutes before the TT start in Bend this year.

There is a huge difference in the HED H3D and the HED Stinger 9 fronts. The biggest is the H3D has no vertical compliance but offers a very small frontal area. If the roads are smooth you cannot beat this solution. But it will beat you up big time if the roads are rough. The Stinger 9 is great solution for rougher roads in low to moderate winds. High winds, I go to a Stinger 4.

Could you help provide any details on the exact paint color and clear coat used? I'd love to have mine repainted that exact color if possible.

I think it looks stunning. Great job! Are the decals under the clear? I'm considering repainting my frame and trying to figure out a decal solution.

Love this bike, it came out great!

I'm looking to do the same thing on my S-Works Tarmac, can you PM me the name or website of the guy you got decals from?

I'd also be interested in that site.
