PM me, my brother has quite a few of them and I can get you his contact information.
Build was no drama, frame finish is pretty nice. Internal cable routing a typical pain, not looking forward to replacement.
Also purchased the integrated bar and stem, unfortunately forgot to weigh it.
Wait was around a month, but that was mostly due to the bars, supposedly.
Will ride it today and report back.
@jwts not tried a hed, but did try a 404fc(wide rim) and a campy neutron (wide spoke angle), both were fine with a 6700 caliper. Used a 25c gp4000 clincher for the zipp check.
Just rode the bike. Initial impressions are that the back end is uber comfortable-very compliant for how "sporty" the bike handles. The front end is very stiff, maybe a bit much in comparison to the rear. The steering is very quick, whether its too quick is a matter of taste. Didn't descend with it, so not sure how surefooted it is. It does accelerate noticeably quickly, particularly up little power rises.
It seems like quite a bargain for what it is, but time will tell.
I'll try to remember to check clearances tonight when I adjust the fit-I've got some that are 25mm on the way, so yeah, I guess I should check.
I concur with your comments on the ride. The steering is slightly slower than my Cervelo R3SL. It descends fine but I seem to be ok with a wide range of handling on descents. I thought my Vitus 979 was fine too, just don't make any sudden moves.
You might want to put some padding on the rear brake cable inside the frame. I didn't and mine rattles on the frame. I need to remove it and add some rubber donuts or similar.
There's a good amount of tire clearance on the frame.
Has anyone mounted a Quark on a BB30 one of these yet? Where'd you put the magnet?
I used to have it on the chain stay near the bottom bracket, but clearance was pretty tight in there, and it eventually fell off.
