It's been awhile. I've been spending most of my time on the C40s but threw the Reynolds on for a spin this week. They might not be quite as pretty, but holy crap are they fun!

Your LS is set up so perfect, looks great, why did you change your fork ?

Those Reynolds Aero wheels are fantastic all around wheels, it amazes me that more people dont know that.

I saw the fork for sale, but it still looks like a 3t on the bike. I'm tempted, I have an Enve 2.0 currently that's significantly heavier. How do you like the 3t?

His 3T can't clear 27mm actual tubs.

Yeah, it's a Columbus Futura fork on the bike now because I wanted to try 27s and couldn't get quite enough clearance on the 3T fork.

Both forks are good. Less common than Enve and they hold the front wheel on. Hard to make any real comparison other than one weighing a lot less on the scale.

What 27 tubs are you trying ?

I'd like to find a 27mm (BLACK) Tubular, as I've only been running the Vlannderen tires. I've slashed sidewalls and they keep rolling. Last week I was 4mi into a ride, and came to a stop light. Started to roll and heard a rotating tinging sound. Look down and there's a piece of metal punctured into the tire. I pull it out thinking the tire would release all of the air. NOPE. I went and compelted a 56mi ride. The metal didn't even make it through the punture protection of the tires... AMAZING

Veloflex Vlannderen tires hands down the best tire! Now if they could just make an all black version.

Would acetone get the gum colour off?

Changed a few things up; I'm back on 25mm tires as I prefer the handling which means I'm also back on the 3T fork. Because weight weenies. I've also decided to revisit di2 (my time with 9070 was not exactly loving) and I am absolutely blown away by the new 9150. Honestly, I can't remember the last piece of cycling kit that surprised me as much as this group is so far. While I was swapping groups, I also threw the Deda SL bars back on... for no real reason I suppose. I experimented with a SISL2 for a time (which is now on to Ryan's bike) but gravitated back to the Red22 crank because I don't care about beating it up. Last, but certainly not least, I had Fairwheel Bikes build me a set of FSE 35s on Carbon-Ti hubs. Initial impressions are very, very good. Keep an eye out for a thread to discuss the wheels (and FWB experience) in greater detail.

Not helped by the fact that we've sent more than a few parts back and forth!

FWB was excellent!
