How is it treating you? What's you weight and is it stiff enough?

The Ritchey colour is just classy.

F-ing hell.....that is about as good as it gets. :podium: :thumbup: :beerchug:

EDIT: What kind of clearance does that frame have with the Belgium +? 25mm a squeeze probably since they would measure 27+ on the wide rims?

Looks good, are those Veloflex 25mm clinchers?

And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

They're Vittoria SC clinchers. 23/25, but measure 25/28 on the archetypes. Unfortunately my fork won't clear a 27, so I've gotta downsize my front tire.

Thanks all!

Size 55.

Plenty of space for tire clearance. They advertise room for 28s and I believe that to be true.

I'm on the light side, 6'1", 155lbs and don't have much of a kick. I find the bike to be plenty stiff. Especially in the front end. Using a Ritchey C260 Carbon Matrix stem and aluminum EvoCurve bars. Solid.

BB, there is a bit more flex than my Wilier. Not something I really notice unless I'm looking for it.

@michel Weight is around 7.7kg depending on wheels. BB is PF30. On the one hand it's great, because I can use my SRM with it, on the other hand PF BBs are losing their luster with me.
