How do you manage not to slip off the tip of your saddle and hit your nuts on the top tube?

How do you like the wheels? There was such hype about these FSE wheels when they first came out, but its been kind of quiet since. I still don't know if it's ever been proven that they're actually filament wound.

Looks better with the new wheels for sure. I am surprised that you're running an AX bar and stem while using other heavy parts like your saddle, post, cassette, etc.

Omg, that saddle tilt is huge, surely that can't be right/comfortable.

LOL its the design of the saddle to be nose down. Its only 6 degrees. It is the best saddle setup ive ever had.

One step at a time.

The saddle is actually fairly light but, I am more interested in fit more so than weight with my saddle. The post is a propreitary shape, it's shaped almost like a D. The casette is on the list of upgrades. I was looking at the Recon casette.
