Good work with that. It must be testing when building the same model repeatedly, but the customers no doubt appreciate the consistency and quality finishing.

Re pricing. The sl7 frame in UK is down to £3750 in some colours. So 5500usd isn't @ knockout deal these days unless you get the rest of the bike :)

I know, sl7 can be purchased cheaper in UK.
But I am located IN EU so I have to pay all taxes when shipping bike to my country.

hey, guys
Does anyone own a new Roval Rapid Handlebar?
size 40, for example, is it size between drops or hoods?
I need 38cm between hoods and 40cm between drops.

Could you please measure the rapid handlebar between hoods and drops?

I've got the Roval Rapide in a 380 with the DA9200 hoods. 360 between hoods, so you'll need a 400.

Just had an SL7 built up, I noticed the bars can turn and will hit the top tube, do these frames have nothing to limit the travel of the bars? Or am
I missing something?

No worries. See photos below for exact measurements:

The DA hoods with the inward tilt really do reduce the width if you're on the top of the shifters

I've got a 54cm Tropical teal and a set of 38 on order also. I can't wait to see "real" pictures of the colour. All I've found is this picture on Instagram but it's in low light https://www.instagram.com/p/CXnZ_ymPO7O/

This describes every bike I've ever owned. It's not a huge problem. Frames with internal stops, like the S5, seem to have more issues.

Hehe, looks like we might end up with the same bike. =)

There's a new video on YouTube btw.
