Here is a quick pic with a black Aliante I had in the parts bin. Probably need to get a carbon braided one but this will do for now. That Pina saddle was killing me.

I put 430km on it in the last 5 days. It is a very nice riding bike. Very impressed how stable and precise it is going downhill.

EPS takes very little to get used to. Not sure I will get addicted to it though.

I am considering getting a Dogma F8. The question is would I be better to get a lighter bike. I am 190lbs (loosing weight) but still a big guy. I live in a town with several big climbs 1hr+/-. In some respects I need all the help I can get.

Main reason for a new bike, tired of my 07 madone. Love the looks of these, and I test road one. The bike feels so solid, and great transfer of power. I rode an Emonda as well, It definitely felt lighter and rode really well for a light bike. Part of me just wants something different then the big 3 brands. Also I wonder about the old arguement of light versus planted feel.

TIA

Newbie.

SR EPS
Bora Ultra 35 black
Prologo evo nago nack black

You should not be disappointed, i really like mine and it gets the call most of the time compared to the other bikes.

Some more recent pics. I now have 4000km on it, this is a great bike. I am also liking EPS quite a lot as well.

I put close to 1k miles on it but then I hurt my back a few months ago so I have only put 20 miles on it with these wheels. But I still love it. I really like the new wheels too, it really adds to the snappy feel.

Outstanding bike but still can't live with any Pina forks :S These are definitely better than the old though !

The new F8 design made me also switch... the old ones were too fancy for me with the curves in it... behhhh.
But the F8..... hmmmm
