Kinesis Gran Fondo, Ultegra 6700, Ritchey Classic finishing kit and PMP on Excellights.

Feels every one of its 5lbs extra weight over the Cyfac but has a ride feel akin to steel - kind of steamrollers the road and is very smooth and stable. Love the contrast!




Now searching for a polished silver chainset as the Ultegra just looks wrong. Can't rock a 7800 with this weight and these hills! Thinking of maybe a FCR600 or 700 with Stronglight rings?

The old silver SRAM Rival chainset would work nicely:
