Thanks for the additional info - The Aeolus XXX 4 i was referring to though are the tubular version;

Time to have a word with my source in Tenerife to get an AIR ordered.

Cheers.

yes, i although like bor-rings.

i actually am not the biggest fan of disc-brakes, thick tubes, the sworks tarmac frame and this strange kind of rds, but somehow, this, imo, is the nicest bike for quite some time.

I dont find CLX50's all that stable in the wind... not sure I'd rate them any better then 5.6. Of my stable the 4.5AR are the best(and shallowist)... I dont count my CLX32 and G27's cuz 650B.

She is not allowed to run spacers under the stem. It must look good. It must be slammed. [...] Lol. She thinks cycling is easy. She needs to be schooled.

This thread is pleasing to the eye and informative, let's not ruin it with such idiotic remarks :roll:

How is the shifting with Di2 and the XG1190? I'm thinking of replacing my Ultegra 11-32 with a SRAM XG1190 (also 11-32).

I've been exclusively using XG1190 for years with Di2... ultegra and Dura Ace setups on 3 bikes... since I have it on 3 bikes that should tell you it works fine.

rotate the bar 1 to 2 degree upward could improve the look

Looks better without tan walls to me. That's a first! Beautiful bike.

Definitely wouldn't opt for gumwalls on this bike - but I already had the tires. It doesn't look as awful as I expected though.
