Love the commitment to aero with the tririg! Wonder if you can get a lower profile cable stop for the front brake cable though...

Is the frameset coming with a rear brake included?
The builds you guys have done are looking sharp.

I purchased the dura ace direct mount rear brake. It is br-9010.

Any more reports about flexiness?
Mine is (finally) being built this week. Probably won't have it until Monday or Tuesday though...with the temps here (0-33 F) I guess it's not that much of a loss but I'm dying to ride it.

I'm not sure about the FRD, I'm sure I read either on here or Slowtwitch that the FRD would always be delivered after the AR1. I was expecting my AR1 this month, but seems the word from Felt Germany is that they're not leaving the factory (wherever that is) until February, so expected delivery for me to the UK is mid March.

nosuga, just wondering what you're using as a quick release for the rear brake? Can't quite make it out on the picture.

No quick release. My wheels are 26.2mm at the brake track. 23 mm tires. So no need to run a quick release.

Ok thanks. Do you have a barrel adjuster in line then? As I say I can see something running next ti the stem but maybe you could clarify what it is.

Aero frames aren't known to be super stiff and if I wanted to get a super stiff frame I would have just bumped up to the s-works tarmac sl4. I wanted this frame because it looked super sweet. Haha

thats a bit of a throwaway statement. compare for example my tmr 01 to the team machine slr01 or 02 and you'll find its far stiffer, where you need to develop power... (BB etc). the venge is stiffer than the tarmac....

if as another user was saying about putting 1700 watts through the frame, well you probably would encounter a tiny bit of flex... thats a lot of power...
