Notes on the frameset:
Setup was fairly straightforward, no cable stops so you need full length housing, which is fine, shifting and braking are wonderful.
Elbow pads came with double sided adhesive, it can be removed just have to be careful it does tear the foam.
The amount of adjustment of the front end is amazing for this pricepoint, it was hard to get used to the straight extensions because I was used to the ski bend.
25mm wide wheels fit but 25c tires do not.
Front end doesn't seem as stiff as it looks, that is pure observation, plenty stiff though.
Initially getting it painted matte black, but realized I don't like matte paint. So I polished the frame which turned out nice, should have gotten it cleared to begin with.
Just need to get some black SI bolts.
A friend let me borrow the wheel without cassette for our state TT, and it's not 11sp, so I had to figure something out. every other time I ride my 50's with the 6800 11-23T cassette, as seen on the Allez. eventually I'll get an 11sp disc
great build. love this frameset!
Here's a couple shots of Darkness before the Mt. Lemmon Time Trial. I decided to try out the full aero, 310 watts for 40min. Went out a bit too hard then the heat and elevation gain got to me the last 5 km and my power faded.
