Always look forward to your new threads, so a bit disappointed we won't be seeing more ;)

Glad to read you've found hopefully what is "the one" for a while. Look forward to more photos and perhaps any small changes along the way. :beerchug:

Haha thanks man. Honestly besides not having too much spare time it's been about not getting emotionally attached to all those bikes I've owned recently. Also got tired of taking photos in my dumb garage with not enough lighting and going outside to take a photo of it makes me feel like a tool (introvert things).

But I will definitely try to populate this thread when I can :)

beautiful bike. i can relate to you about the emotional connection. don't really have it for any one bike. for me it's all about how the bike performs. if it rides exceptional, it is a keeper. if it really doesn't do anything for me in terms of performance, i will trade/sell it.

Just ordered the post. I really need a zero set back and was about to order one through my shop.
How long did it take? Still happy with it?

Took quite a bit. Couple weeks or close to 3.

Yep. Took it to long bumpy rides 4 times now. 0 issues. Really csn’t believe nothing’s coming loose with such small tightening torque.

I heard some of you don't like black bikes. Fine :mrgreen:

Couldn't pass up -$500 from retail, free shipping and 0% tax.
I love the white Evo with 105 di2. I do have another 9200 group but gonna leave it 105 and make this my travel / train / everyday bike.

Why do you have two of the same bike?

Second bike cause I don't wanna take the $15k bike on overseas trips etc.

Same bike because I kinda tried everything I've been curious about in the past few years.
I love how it looks, rides, most importantly fits me.
I also like the idea of having a bike I'll have all the spares for I can swap over etc.

That actually makes a lot of sense, nice bikes, even 105 12sp is still really good.

Just took the Evo 3 out in the rain for some interval training and loved every minute of it.
Sometimes I do wonder if we need all the top end stuff. Probably no good answer for that one.

My reach is effectively 30mm longer on the evo 3 with the stock parts compared to the lab71 stack is a bit higher because of stock stem’s stack and angle. I don’t mind the stack too much. I do like the lower Lab71 but I’m very surprised I wasn’t bothered with the reach. it was a 2.5 hour ride with some efforts so middle of the ground. ~4.5 hours endurance tomorrow and if I’m still comfortable I might do some rethinking about my bike fit to make it a little racier on the lab71 to match the evo 3.

How are you liking the Sigeyi direct mount hanger? Any issues? I have used on other bikes (Aspero and SL6) and tempted to get for new supersix evo 4. Thanks for info!
