The weight difference is fairly insignificant at about 11 grams. I really just liked the aesthetics over the praxis.

Shifting isn’t as crisp as it was with the praxis chainrings but the mechanic is looking at some play in the B.B. which may be the culprit. Will let you know once it’s addressed.

Was going to say Alligator I links.
That stuff's a bit cheap and nasty, and can creak. The joints aren't great.

Jagwire Elite Link is good stuff, though.

Picked up powermeter pedals for the protos because I really like the Clavicala SE cranks. Required me to switch from Time Xpresso 15 pedals. So far so good. Calibration was straightforward.

What is the weight difference between your SRM Exakt pedals and your Look Kéo Blade Ti pedals?

It's all downhill from here, except for the uphills.

Sharp looking bike.

Sorry if I missed it somewhere, but what size is the frame?

They did a really good job with the proportions to make a big frame look good. Something many companies don’t do very well.
