Great to see that the EE brakes work with size 50 frame. I had trouble installing them on my size 47 F8. Might need to consider size 50 for next build.
I'm 5'6 if I standup really straight :)

Having had my F10 in operation for a number of weeks now I can completely understand when you mention how your F10XL puts a big smile on your face. The interesting thing is how it continues to reveal with new discoveries, like the ride, decending, and a very perceptible jump in efficiency from my other bike. Very glad yours in working out so well for you! Its a real beauty!

Still loving it? I echo everything you said, it's just such a pleasure to ride, when I ride one of my other bikes, or a buddies bike I feel like its a serious downgrade. I just love everything about the F10 for sure way more machine than I am rider, but it certainly convinces me to try and go faster! :D

New to this sport/hobby. I did the San Diego century ride (65miles one) a few months ago. Beautiful weather all day long
I was born in SD but I do like corona, it just gets warm in the summer

It has been almost a year, do you still like your F10 X-Light as you initially bought it? Any pros and cons to share of long term usage?

So it's an XLight and my only road bike although I have a gravel and a MTB my road bike gets the most use by a lot. I was worried about the longevity and the weaker carbon layup. However, it's been flawless in terms of the frame.

I've owned other higher end road bikes, and none of them compare to what an absolute weapon the F10 is in any condition, climbing, flats, cornering, or descending. It's so confident.

I have had to replace the headset due to sweat and moisture but that's the only thing included with the frame I've had to replace.

I'm not too happy with the Enve wheels, and wish I had gone for Zipps with the new hubs or Lightweights. I just blew up the rear on a climb and my buddy snapped a spoke on his enves the very next day too?

Bottom line, the F10 makes me smile every ride.

Thanks for the updates. Looking into the F10 and X-Light but wondering whether should hold out for F11(?). It's a big investment and F10 is a small improvements to F8.

F8 was launched in May 2014 and F10 was launched in January 2017. If the launch cycle are somewhat similar, we are likely to see some new Dogma in 2019.

That is surprising. Care to elaborate more? Thanks.

the prince climbed better and felt like it can take more speed, whatever you throw at it.

Me too, especially after I blew up my rear enve a few weekends ago and had to have it rebuilt. I just can't get past the price tag.
