Rich, I'm planning some updates to my Allez over the winter, How are you running link cables to the rear brake? I'm sure mine is currently full housing all the way without a cable stop in there.

After about 120 miles, I decided the Sitero was not for me. I had previously tried a Power saddle on my Venge and it felt very good, but only in a very aggressive position. I figured, the TT bike is basically a constant aggressive position, so I thought I'd give it a try again. It feels so much better than the Sitero. I've had 3 separate 2 hour sessions on the bike since the change and it feels great.

I believe there is link housing doing through the internal, upper routing... but, to be honest, I'm not 100%. I've never done link cables and was apprehensive that I could get it done correctly, so the awesome mechanic at my local shop did it.

I gave my mechanic a shout last night... he said there are cable stops for that internal routing in the top tube.. no links inside.

Not a road bike.... and not WW at all, but here's my latest ride for the fall/winter months. It is a 2016 Specialized Fuse Comp... upgraded with full Shimano XT M8000 drivetrain and brakes, Praxis bottom bracket, Race Face Atlas stem, Race Face Next carbon bar and Rockshox Pike RCT3 fork. I've been having a blast on it.... so much fun.

Now that I've got the bike all set for race mode, I figured I'd bust out the good glass and take some pics.

Made some changes to my Tarmac... some custom printed vinyl logo with the pattern I designed for the team/club jersey.

Nice, I like the custom graphics.
The cables look a little long to me, how do they look when the bars are turned all the way round? IMO they should only just make it round without rubbing the headtube.

By the way, real men don't smile on the start line, it's a sign of weakness! :wink: :D
