nothing special, but i just got it built up and dialed in. figured i post it up.

disclaimer: not a WW build by any means - I've got no scales, so you get no weights. sorry about the terrible pic as well. ill try to get some better ones if its sunny out tomorrow.

as i said this was a budget build, mostly from spare parts i had laying around and stuff on sale, so its no where near as baller as some of the stuff on here but I'm well chuffed with the outcome. just barely 1k usd into the build at this point.

next purchases will be a 105 Double, 120mm stem and some less shite wheels when i can afford it

yes you do. they are 10sp centaur levers with a jtek shift mate #3 to adjust the pull ratio for shimano gearing

front shifting works decent with no fiddling, could be better but i blame that on the cheapass crank

thanks. i have considered some carbon wheels but I'm still on the fence about it. don't want carbon clinchers so id go tubular but at the same time id like to try out road tubeless so i think i might just scoop up an ultegra wheelset

a longer stem is desperately needed, steering is way too light

thanks, I'm loving the proportions of it all built up. almost wish i went with a size down 52 or got a 53cm FM-069 for a bit shorter Front Center and less stack, but i can surely deal.

been doing a fair bit of riding, ~132mi/~211k in the past two days, ~200mi/~320k in the past week and I'm seriously stoked this bike.

I've already swapped the bars to my wicked old Sakae anatomics, couldn't get into the compacts at all, felt horrid trying to ride in the drops or have a little sprint.

heres some snaps from yesterday.

I've also got a 5700 52/39 double, a 120mm stem, some fancy cables in the post! payday came early for me! cant wait to get that garbage compact off there and relegate it to single ring duty on my bad weather/travel bike

really all thats left for me to do now is work out my wheel situation. probably going to just buy a ultegra wheelset and call it good unless i get the motivation to build my own wheels up with

once wheels are sorted i will be a nice saddle and funky colored seatpost collar away from being 100% content with this bike. i foresee myself riding this bike for many years to come.

thanks for taking a look as well as all the nice comments.

winter riding is lovely, i don't get why so many loathe it.

took my first good spill of the winter riding season too. hit an ice patch rolling along around 10-15mph. slid for a good 20 feet on my ass! no bodily damage, scraped up my left lever, tore up my tape and lost a bottle though. ill have a proper update in a few days when my parts start to show up

Rule #9
// If you are out riding in bad weather, it means you are a badass. Period.

Fair-weather riding is a luxury reserved for Sunday afternoons and wide boulevards. Those who ride in foul weather – be it cold, wet, or inordinately hot – are members of a special club of riders who, on the morning of a big ride, pull back the curtain to check the weather and, upon seeing rain falling from the skies, allow a wry smile to spread across their face. This is a rider who loves the work.
Everything is all right in the end, so if everything is not allright it's not the end
