Ordered these from Shopee (it's like Aliexpress but localized for the Philippines). I'm really not sure whether the 105 PD-5800 are original/legit, since these were sourced from China (paid ~USD60 for the pair); they sure do pass the eye test. Hopefully when I clip on them tomorrow morning they won't fall apart (fingers crossed).

Also, after a long time not being able to visit bike shops because of the pandemic situation here in our city, I was able to today and grabbed the chance to buy NOS Chorus 11 chains (paid ~USD45 for each; ended up buying two).

Knees doesn't hit those cages?
No, not when they're pushed all the way up, but it is tight! I could move the base up a slot for extra clearance, but I feel like it's better supported using all three bottle bosses.

I have seen the crank tank, an aussie mate sent me a link last week, like the look of it, but not sure how it'd fit with the flat topped down tube of the Exploro. Shipping to the UK makes it fairly expensive too (although my mate might be sending me his orange 5 to sell here, so might get hom to chuck one in the box to try if that happens).

i had hoped to be able to fit the double bottles and my apidura frame bag for overnighters but sadly not...

A gold PYC chain, some grease, an Uno stem, some Ti bottle cage bolts, a torque wrench, cable cutters, Supacaz tape, and some shallow Specialized bars for the build I'm working on.

The gold came off my PYC chain pretty quickly unfortunately. Maybe it just didn’t like the degreaser I was cleaning it with.

Yeah some degreasers can ruin the golden finish

Selle Italia SLR Boost Superflow Kit Carbonio. Size S3 (130mm).

I've really liked the Endurance SLR Boost I have on my BMC so I'm trying out the top end version on my Wilier. 128g on my scale. Was too hyped to get in installed to take proper in depth pictures.

Thanks for the heads up, do you remember what degreaser you were using?

It was the orange Zep brand from Home Depot. Works really well. I used it on my KMC gold chain without issue tho.

Will definitely report back, love the look of it and it would be good to have an alternative to the Arione
