Ha ha ! Actually, It was just a photo shoot and I had a couple of glass of wine. I asked my 12 year old dougther to take some pictures of me.

I also wear cotton socks... ;)

What a collection you've got, class man chapeau. I can't even say which one I like best, they're all that nice. I have the same wheelset build coming up as your nemesis + record hubs. What's the length of those dt spokes you're using btw?


Nemesis rims 32hole and Record hubs (black) with DT Competition spokes I've built several sets with the following spoke lengths:
Front wheel: 302mm
Rear wheel DS: 299mm
Rear wheel NDS: 302mm (301 would have been ideal but 302's worked just fine and I didn't have to have a third length for the build)
On one build I experimented with DT Revolutions on the rear NDS. I thought they might stretch a bit more and went with 300mm length because of that and any lengths longer than that were difficult to get at the time. The 300's are fine, 301's would be perfect and 302's would work too.

Glad you're enjoying your bike. If I were to go sloping that would be the size I'd go for, 56s. What is your saddle height as shown in your pic? Just curious. Looks like it would be higher than say 81cm which must give you a pretty aggressive drop to the tops of the bars it looks like.

Maybe a bit off topic ... or maybe not ...

I am building a Colnago Super modern build ... and I hang around here to get ideas .. so .. why do you people prefer Deda Stem and handlebar and no 3ts ... ?

Personally I don't care what finishing kit someone uses as long as its one they like rather than what they think others will like to see photos of on the Internet.

I have both Deda and 3T cockpits. Like them both, depending on the build. But I really prefer a classic bend regardless of brand. Had a set of Presa's but didn't like 1) the bulge on top which had to be angled just right or the edge would dig into my palm 2) I do not like the RHM shape, I prefer a significant flat section in the drops before it curves upwards and finally 3) the internal routing of the Presa's is a pain in the ass. I gave them to a friend for Christmas.

I can't understand why 3T have their logos positioned so half of it ends up under the bar tape though.

The Arx stem is perforated and the bars have contrasting colour on the clamping area so it will be very visible from the front.

The logos on the bar are usually covered by tape or the computer mount anyway
