Vectors require a crows foot adapter for your torque wrench right? perhaps thats what they were lacking.

On topic this is an awesome build! Nice color balance and amazing component choices! Very jelly!

All sorted. Went to their sister store which had a torque wrench and the crow claw adaptor.

I think that is the original Oltre Nero. It's a beautiful build, but it's not mine.

Thanks anyway!

Thank you for the comments. I'm pretty happy with the current position. So I will be trimming down the steerer over the next few days. I will have some proper photos taken and post them up.

Hey that's a beautiful build you have there. How do you find the ride compared to your previous bikes?

It is incredibly compliant for such a stiff bike which I must admit was somewhat unexpected. It's very responsive, fast and basically down right cool. This btw is in comparison to my other bikes which for the record are a Cervelo SLC-SL and Time RXR.

I lusted after an rxrs ulteam for a long time!

I get the same impression. I really expected it to beat me up but I have been surprised. I'll be taking her on some B roads this weekend so that should be a good test. I really love the way she changes direction.

Time RXR has been a very nice bike, but was time for a change :D
