solid ride. not a weight weenie, yet it's something about the TIME LOL
NEW FRAME arrived. pictures will be up as soon as the the parts arrive and built.
Here we go. Finally put it together and put about 120 miles on it... feels solid. This is a different world so i stopped lying to myself that i didn't need a new bike... new technology is cool and thats what makes cycling fun. I was tired of looking at the same bike for three straight years, so I sold one of my kidneys to fund this new ride LOL
This is my first thru-axle bike, first time on Etap and RED AXS gears, first time to try SRAM, first time to try Tubless and first time to try 28mm tires, not the first set of Zipps but very first time to roll on NSW hubs.
Finishing of the this frame does not disappoint, but i have not seen other color schemes in person to compare so I'm bias. The clear coated carbon mixed with flat back and jet-black is quite cool. I love those little triangles on the top tube as I think they are the mountains?
size M with 120 stem hooked on MCFK bar. Zipp NSW 202 (2020 model).
I'm a TIME fanboy....this is my fifth TIME in the past 11 years so if you ask me..go get one!
Thanks to Excel Sports, Contendar and Fairwheels, Merlins. These guys are solid as they customer service is top notch even during the most difficult time. The fore-mentioned guys are great in communications, professional and MUCH BETTER than the ones i've been dealing with from Germany.
