So check out the new pictures of my Pronghorn! I think they're cool.

The Focus-build has suffered an unfortunate setback. I was completely finished, execpt from cables only to find that the the white plastic cable carrier in my Sram Rival lever is broken.

Do anyone know if this piece is replaceable? I have an old Sram Rival lever somewhere, where it's the paddle that is broken and thought i might be able to use the cable carrier from this, on my current lever.

Thanks!

And yea, they're nice. The clip system on them is shit tough - at least if you suffer a puncture.

Sup',

So for the 2014 racing season i'll need a new race bike.

I can either opt for a great deal through my new team/club on a Trek Madone 5.2 2014 with Ultegra 11 speed, or
I can choose another great deal on 2013 Cervelo R3 which would be build with Sram Force 11 speed.

They would both be aproxx. same price. Both bikes would be raced with a set of Zipp 404 firecrests.

Well i ended up choosing the Cervelo R3 and hit the buy-button today.

Hopefully it'll be home soon so i can strip it for parts and build it with Sram Force 22 and Zipp 404's.

As soon as there's some pictures to post i'll post 'em

Thanks

I'm also in loooove with this paint scheme over the numerous black-on-black bikes.

The ride is very good aswell and the Sram group compliment the frame so well. I would really recommend the Cervelo R3 for anyone looking for a light and stiff ride, that is yet comfortable.

Very nice bike!
Any chance you weighted the group? I found different weights and I'm confused.
