Thanks folks. Yes, these are still the Enve bars. I have a matching bar and stem coming but it won't be Enve. I like narrow bars but these are just too extreme for me. Climbing out of the saddle just feels unnatural... even more than normal :)

2.5 weeks and still waiting for my bars from Ribble. Not long ago it was faster to order from them than QBP.

Great looking bike (and well below the UCI weight limit). Not bad for an aero build!

Borrowing a set of Knight 65s for a bit. These things are awesome so far!

Finally getting the setup more where I want. Weather has been dreadful in the PNW and a car accident has me off the bike... but at least the diet is working (for the bike).

Hoping to get out for a proper photo shoot soon.

I'm going to do almost the same setup. AR1, Etap, Reynolds aero 72 and aeronova. Looks pretty good on the pictures! Can imagine it's better in real life

The wheels are Reynolds 58 Aero tubulars. Vittoria Corsa Speed tires mounted on them.

I think the finish/color on these Reynolds pairs much better with the build than the Enve 4.5s.... which are now for sale!

Snowed in so I hopped over my back fence to snap some photos. The backdrop didn't work out as well as I'd hoped (and it's been a loooooong time since I fired up the SLR)

That is really gorgeous. You have nailed it. Hopefully you can get out on it soon. I would love to here a ride report.

Did 18 miles on the bike with questionable fitness so nothing much to report. It definitely feels light out of the saddle.

Reviewed my neck and head MRI a few days after that ride and the docs say no more for awhile. If I'm going to ride outside, I need a bit more cushion and probably less drop for awhile to not agitate the bulging discs in my neck. Please check out my listing in the classifieds section and let me know if anyone's got interesting in buying this thing as pictured!

That's to nice to sell put on some 28 tubs at 80psi and raise the bars for awhile.

I agree, I was just looking at your bike thinking how good it looks and might pick up an AR1 for racing. Its too nice to sell, just spacer it up or invert the stem till your fitness recovers?
