750mm saddle height
Your build should be fantastic though pretty loud with Boras! The 2012 Boras in black label would be awesome (or just resticker Boras if you are swapping them over). I have to say the Cofidis build with Fulcrum Racing Speeds is a litte too much for me with the clashing red...

Not sure my femurs are unusually long but maybe! It's a steep seat tube and I went for a smaller frame to get the right drop which meant slamming the saddle back. Not ideal but needs must!
I'll take some for you, yes... In the meantime:mpower wrote:Can you post some photos of the Di2 areas like BB, RD, FD, battery and front cable entry point?
Front cable entry - right side port on downtube immediately behind headtube
Battery cable exit - top of downtube just below upper cage bolt
BB - nothing exposed and no holes needed given enormous BB entry for fishing cables!
FD - cable exit 3-4cm below braze hanger, c10cm above centre BB
RD - cable exit 12cm from centre of installed skewer on outside of drive side chainstay
Stiff, Light, Aero - Pick Three!!
Looks a bit odd with the dark labels, bad mix of "stealth" fashion style and Euro loud n proud. Wheels need a bit of white to tie in with the frame or maybe just totally destickered. The gray doesn't work IMO. They're a bit mushy and the rest of the bike is so well defined with its outlined paintwork.
You can always send those tired c50s my way!
Btw, Bora seems to cut thru cross wind better with the G3 spoke pattern. The place I ride along the coast line have strong wind. I've Fulcrum racing speed Xlr as well, but sold it. Bora also command much better resale value. Both wheels have nearly similar stiffnes. Btw the 2012 Bora feels very much stiffer than my 2009 Bora. If u try to move the wheel sideway with a digital scale attached, it requires 3nm more to flex the wheel side to side. It also have less travel side to side. Btw, I tighten the wheel bearing caps, so nothing to do with bearing plays. Stiffness is much improved in the new version. I heard the new 2012 shamal have different hub flange spacing that is wider.
They aren't light at 1490g actual but they are very stiff, solid and - with 16F/20R spoking - nicely aerodynamic. So definitely not as good as a LW for most purposes but a lot more practical based on my own experience with full carbon wheels.
I had a close call with a cheap set of Zipp 404 Firecrest tubulars last night but have resisted! Some custom stickers would have been needed but on weight/price/performance they nearly had me!
