Well done and what a good looking bike. You are running 53/39 chainset and BB-brake. That combination screams flat roads. Where do you live?

Thanks very much Cal. Yes..loving it. The shifting so precise and crisp. Also, love the feel of the crank and looks rather nice against the orange frame. I even went for a black KMC chain :-)

Looking perfect! Love the tight clearances between the tires and the frame.

I've always had a soft spot for the King3/XS series.. great looking bike.. a bit bright on the eyes but you've done a stellar job with the all black components..

Awesome bike and set-up, love the for the frame, the protos gets more attention, but the King XS is a real beauty. Enjoy it, and let us know how it rides :)
