Tell me about it, so annoyed with hydro for that reason only!

Cheers bud, really chuffed with it. Can't get over how decent the ride quality is. Was wandering how it would ride compared to the C60, the GEO is so similar it's all based on the steel and braking.

Off the line clearly not as fast in sprints, took it round my local closed track and it handles so so well, but riding from a slow hairpin you can note the weight. Saying that descents are absolutely out of this world, the discs give so much more confidence and obvious performance. Shaved circa 5 seconds off some fast fast descents locally and will keep pushing.

What's the final weight?

8 Knee operations and donor knee cartilage mean I drop crank length to help with strain through the joint. Tried 177.5/175/172.5 and now 170mm which have been the best so far...

Wow , didn't see this tread until you posted on mine... but I really like the colour of your bike and the rear drop-outs look beautiful. And about the Berk Lupina - I love them so much that I have one on all my bikes.

Thanks man, got the steerer to cut next week right down and the Berk Saddle should be arriving today via Starbike - annoyingly I won't be at home but hopefully a neighbour will sign for the DHL package!

I rode one the other day (Lupina) and it was like riding a leather Eames chair, so damn supple. So instantly had to get one!

To do list:
-Drop stem 10MM and cut steerer, I know I could do this immediately but thought may as well wait for the carbon steerer Park Tool blade for the chopping.

So, shopping list over the next few months will be as follows:

-Nokon Gear Cable Set - Black (cutting cables as too long!)
-Schmolke Headset Expander
-JRC Components Front Mech Clamp
-Ti Spindles for Speedplays + Ti Butterflies

That should give me approx 250gs saving for not a huge outlay at all.

Most improtantly however is riding the thing!

Replaced the SS Speedplay spindles with Ti units, about a 45g saving over the SS units and 60g over the Chromo. Had these spare so thought I’d try. Will go ahead with Ti butterflies eventually.

Your cables don't look long enough.

Thanks man, hadn’t noticed them until you said that. Glad you did.

They are getting cut in a month or so following adjustments.
