Hi @Imaking20 - I have asked previously on what your thoughts were on the ride characteristics between your previously owned Wilier Cento 10 Air and your Pinarello Dogma. Only just realised that you have had a Factor O2 and was wondering as to how that stacks up against the Cento 10 Air if you wouldn’t mind providing a few comments?

I ask as I am torn between a v2 Factor O2 and a Wilier Cento 10 Pro (evolution to the Air) The Dogma i have now gone off due to reading a few negative reviews and it’s portly figure!

The dilemma which i have is that I can pick up a Factor O2 frameset with integrated handlebar/stem combo for £2650, on the other hand though the Wilier would cost me approx £4000 (upgraded colour option costing £450) Or, I could pick up a Cento 10 Pro rim brake for approx £3900 fully built with Ultegra Di2 which i would remove and sell on.

Appreciate your thoughts, thanks.

Yes, both my Zero 7 & Cento 1 SR do ride very nice, the latter is more stable and holds the speed better on the flats but its noticeably slower on the inclines. I was looking to try and better the ride feel and stiffness with the Factor O2. The fatigue testing of the O2 which i saw on the GCN channel when they did the factory walk round was impressive. That coupled with the reviews which i have read has swayed me towards it. Well, that and the fact that the Wilier’s are like trying to source hen’s teeth!
So, these Factor O2’s at 50% , where do i find them 🤔

Thanks for the response.

Just got a Tarmac disc, is it ok to hang upside down from hooks (carefully, of course)? First hydraulic disc brake bike, seems I saw something about that once so trying to make sure - thanks in advance!

systems are supposed to be sealed... but sometimes air can drift from the res and into the lines. So on occasion a bleed my be necessary. Personally I try to avoid it. Friend on mine had a flat, turned the bike upside down to change the tires and his brakes felt spongy afterwards. when I get a flat, I leave the bike upright.

@Imaking20, what top cap and expander are you running? Also, how do you get in contact with this Boris from Brooklyn person?

Stunning, and impressive weight for a disc build. Hope no harm done in the spill.

The part number any specialized dealer can order for you is S170500003.
