Dude, your bikes are always so hot! 9.9/10 because of the 32 cassette with a 53/39 though. Yes I'm a gearing snob :twisted:
If you mean my Merlin - it's a 13-29 cassette which suits my advancing age and dropping average speed :wink:

A 29!? Well then, my eye was off, score boosted to 10/10 :thumbup:.
@Marin, for gravel you are excused :wink: Although I have to wonder, won't it have a rather short lifespan? I would think a 9 tooth sprocket would wear out pretty quickly, can you replace individual sprockets?

What do you think of my 9-32 cassette then?

6.85kg without the rear light, and that's with aluminum "gravel" bars.
I think it's a kilo heavier than my T2 was with real gearing and padding on the saddle ;)

Not that you're asking me...

I think the weight is pretty impressive, those brakes must weigh like 350 grams!

I’m working away this week and with the sunny weather in the UK, it would be rude not to take the bike!
I’ve just installed a Type S Power2Max on it so we’ll see how that goes.
Not a weight weenie though, sitting somewhere around 8.2kg.

My Mason BokehTi with 650b wheels and 2.1" tyres, not much clearance, but it all fits. Quite a bit wider than the 700c 35mm wheels/tyres.ImageImageImageImageImageImage

This is exquisite but that seatpost throws off the visual balance. Something less conspicuous would make the whole build look better.
