Thanks Leonel!

It's a silcone cover and I got it direct from Garmin when I bought the 810. Here's a link:

Did you need to come forward in saddle position? Enve post does not look as good as the 3T did. But I understand position needs.
Get some help taping your bars! It is all funky around the shifters!
A1 bike! Well done-

Thanks for that boots2000 ;) Yes it was two things with that 3T post. Positioning was primary reason as I ran out of saddle rail and needed a little bit more. The ENVE was the right pick as gave me just bit, about 5mm, of set back and was able to get the saddle in a better spot for me. Also the 3T seat clamp rubbed my thighs. That was annoying and ruining my bibs. That square bracket on the bottom poked out too much. At least give me some bonus points for getting it painted glossy black to match the bike!

The bar tape is the toughest challenge for me. I changed the brake cables out in the second pic and rewrapped the same tape and did a crappier job than I did before. It's tough to hide that blue stripe. I only have one more box of the Fizik dual tape so I decided to rewrap the same tape. They stopped making the stuff and I like the blue stiching for the bike. Tape has a nice feel too. When it comes time to crack the last box I'll seek professional help!

+ for the details
Are my eyes OK, the bottle cages have some blue stuff on as well...?
If so, can you post close up pics?
The FC decals... if they were blue, that would be a big WOW ;)

Your eyes are good! There's a blue argyle pattern on the cages, very subtle though. While I was waiting on the Di2 parts (boy it was a wait) Slipstream did a limited run of the these cages and I picked up a couple for this build, it was perfect timing!

Garmin-Sharp Mandible Cages

If I could source blue firecrest decals, man I'd get them!

Thanks for the kind words.


Have a look here Russ

The argyle looks great! Needs the full enve treatment ;)

Thanks for the kind words guys! I've actually gone back to the 3T post, the zero setback was just wrong for me. Shame is that I had that post glossed over. I'm thinking about going full Enve on it because I like the stuff on my S3 so much. Here's a more recent pic after I did a little custom work on the stem adding the argyle treatment to the LTD stem. Bars have dropped a little too and I put DT 240S hubs on my 202's as well.

...levelled saddle + lower stem/bars = MUCH BETTER looking bike.
Very nice job, man! :thumbup: :up:
