Beauty of a bike. If I didn’t say it earlier, this is impressive.

Quick question about your Jagwire Elite Link brake cables. How do you like them? I’m looking to replace my creaky Aicans. This set lasted a year before creaking. The prev set didn’t last much longer, ugh. Like you, I’m on a S / XS frame and I worry about a Yokozuna Reaction making the tight bend to my rear EE.
Hi, thanks for the kind comments.

Yeah, the Yokozuna’s are a struggle, though I have used them successfully with EEs before on my previous Ultimate CF SLX frame. It was tricky to get them set up so that they didn’t pull on the callipers.

The Jagwire’s have been fine so far, but then I’ve only ridden the bike 300 miles or so - too early to make a proper judgement. I’ve used Nokons and Alligator i-links long term before without any creaking issues. I know a guy in my club who’s had them on his BMC for a couple of years and he doesn’t have any problems.

Great bike and build. In terms of aesthetics I would change the chainring bolts to black and remove the wheel decals (if removable) - otherwise perfect. Very light but also practical.

Thanks. I think you may be right on the chainring bolts. I’ve been in two minds about them. I assume you mean the decals on the Schmolke wheels rather than the Lightweights, although I actually like those. They come off very easily however - ie if you use anything other than water, so they probably won’t last long!

Damn, I wondered what had been holding me back on the climbs all these years. I’d better rush home and put on my lighter, stiffer, er...
