And here is the lighter, slinkier update.
Tarmac SL Fork vs standard S-Works fork
AC BB vs Stronglight Twister SL
KMC SL Gold chain vs Record
Stronglight CT2 chainrings vs standard Stronglight chainrings
Tune chainring bolts vs standard Stronglight bolts
M2 Racer Skewers vs Bolds
Tune Lockring vs Campag
Cycle Dynamic 11-23 Ti cassette vs Record 11-23 Ti.Steel cassette
Rolf Elan Aero vs Ksyrium SL2s
Yet to be weighed but I reckon I've knocked off 0.5kg or so...
Thanks to those who helped out getting stuff across the pond
Overal it feels much lighter, the M2 racer skewers look great when looking from the cockpit and the Rolfs make a lovely sound on smooth blacktop...
If the Rolf are give brake shuddering it's due to their uneven finished rim braking surface.
Solution;get a ski tuning gummy stone ( also called de-tuning stone) or the expensive Mavic version for bicycles rims that sell for 5x the price as the ski version.
Put the bike on a work stand or upside down on the floor so you can freely spin the wheels, run the stone on the braking surfaces. It might take a few sessions of running the stone to make the problem go away.
Will post close ups soon...
Vibration is a wheel problem, just on the lookout for a gummy stone. Tip, don't type "gummi" into E-bay otherwise you get a lot of interesting non-cycling related clothing
