My last purchases:

- Farsports Feder 30 mm with Farsports RD230 hubs (1090 g)
- Rotor 11-30 cassette (169 g)
- Galfer Wave CL Rotors (160 mm and 140 mm) (98 g & 77 g)
- Vittoria Latex tubes (79 g)
- Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport 25 mm clincher tires (194 g & 195 g)

Image


Now my BMC Teammachine SLR01 Disc Four sits just under UCI legal limit (6765 g with bottle cages, Garmin and lights mounts, pedals).Image

Lots of good stuff here, how do the Wheels ride? Keen on tyre & rotor feedback

You could have saved another 114G on the inner tubes if you switched to Tubolito S-Tubo (Mine come in at 21.1 and 21.4g's)
I run 140mm front and back on my Venge and no problems at all in the last 1000km they have been on the bike.

Happy with how the wheels perform. The biggest difference with my other set is on acceleration. The weight difference makes climbing easier and pushes me to stand up more often (I climb on the saddle normally).
The tires feel similar to the Conti GP5000 but softer. Probably they will last less kms.
Rotors feedback is good, less noisy and with no rubbing but the bite feels a bit less strong than with Ultegra rotors.

I feel more confident with latex tubes than with tubolito and the price difference makes me wonder if it is worth it.

I know there have been issues with this cassette but a friend of mine has put 5000 km on one with no issues. I know the shifting and durability are not comparable with Dura Ace but if you don’t test it...

As a side note, I have an Alfa Romeo, so it’s clear I like taking risks Image

I am pretty impressed with this Castelli Beta Ros
196 grams & very effective/comfy etc etc

Wide range usage depending on base

I bought extra because I know most of them will blow off the rim.

2x Force AXS RD, 2x Force AXS FD, 2x Force PM cranks (165 46-33 for son and 172,5 48-35 for me) Force AXS shifters, Red shifters, reds cause availability problems for rimbrake version, 2x Force 10-28 and 2x Rival 10-30 cassette, 10-30 for trainer purpose.

I saw the rival ad and that's what started it, I was thinking to buy for my son rival derailieurs and power cranks with force shifters because rim brakes, but this was fastest to get bikes ready :D, I'll stay rim brakes for the rest of my life (maybe), but son is growing and maybe next year it's time to get him new frame and I'll get extra wheels and shifters, so I think I'll stay on rimbrakes for ever.

Unless I want new ABS-brakes which I doubt I like to skid sometimes :D
