Thanks!! Yep it’s definitely scary but seems to hold tight from my pulling on it tests lol
Right now, I'd be more afraid of the garage door.
Haha I made sure it clears by about 2 inches

Even if you're sure it clears, I wouldn't make it a habit of driving in and out with the nike on the roof. Seems like an easy way to forget and then you end up wacking the bike on a different garage door too or something that is slightly lower.

Agreed, I know too many bikes that have been destroyed that way.

Well, i have those wheels since last year and there were on my Tarmac SL5 !
I choose those wheels in place of the Campagnolo Bora One because i have a Shimano Dura-Ace groupset...
Fulcrum's wheels are for me a good quality/price and efficiency !
They weight 1395g for clincher 17C...

The Roval's was a little more expensive !!! for the same performance...

Now i have the 2 bikes with Fulcrum, the Speed 40C on the SL6 and the Quattro Carbon on the SL5 :P

I'm not too fond of the LBS sticker placement. :(

I will not keep these LBS stickers at all! (in some countries you can see many people who keep these however)

How tight are the stand’s jaws?

Sounds a daft question but my LBS has the same scales. We weighed my bike in the same manner as you did. Initially I was sceptical of the reading and went to release the scales. As I loosened the jaws the recorded weight of the bike reduced by over 250g!!

Make sure the jaws are only suspending the upper body of the Park Tool scales to get your best reading.

Not even just bikes. I had a customer trash a beautiful Kline that she was first owner on,,, totalled her new-ish 4 Runner and broke the garage door header. I have no idea how she did that much damage, but the insurance claim was HUGE!!!!

Be careful, I've seen Sea Suckers move as they get older and if your clearance is tight, a shift in position could be all it takes.

The bike fits easily on the rear seats inside. Definitely the best place for it.

Is it possible that somebody post some pictures of size 56 with saddle height at 71cm from bb?
I want to order one but Maybe it looks a bit strange with seatpost only at 21 cm

You so realize a saddle height that low will probably mean a cut seat post. Why wouldn't you use a 54?

71 is not even gonna look at that high on a 54. Worse on 56.

I know the feeling though . I need long top tube vs seat tube too

You need that much stack? You'll hardly have any drop at all...
