It's the angle. I'll get more level shots. There is quite a drop from saddle to the bars. I do ride with the shifters a little higher than some, but it's comfy for me and feels better when I'm out of the saddle.

Gum,

A question about the two wheelsets: Although both are great, did you consider a wider profile / more aerodynamic wheelset instead of the Enve 45s, for example Enve 6.7s, Zipps or HEDs, to be used in conjunction w/ the lightweight climbing Enve 25s? Just curious about your choice of the pair...

I thought about the Enve. I just ended up going with the standard 45s. It would probably make more sense to get that fatter wheel, but I don't Time trial and most of my rides are thru hilly areas where I'm not breaking 10mph, so I just wanted light.

Nice work Gum, really worth the wait. I think it looks really attractive, even though I'm usually not a fan of matte black - you really pulled it off. Like everyone else I agree the veloflex tyres look ace and I prefer the shallow rimmed wheels.

I really like sloping top tubes / compact geometries too, but I think they look way better with a short head tube. But you can't help being taller. ;)

Enjoy it, I bet it rides great!

Do you mean Enve 25? There were Edge 24s for a while before Edge 25s replaced them. Perhaps 24 got imbedded into your brain. Or did you really score some Edge 24s?

Also, are the valves on the Veloflex Extremes really as long as depicted, or are you using extensions or different valves? Is 36 mm the stock valve length?

Edit: Or you have AX 24s on your mind.

Sorry...yes they are the ENVE 25's.
As for the valve extenders, they are the ones that shipped with the ENVE'S. The standard Veloflex ones were a little short and I didn't feel like fighting with the to get a pump on. I could go shorter, but these were free so I out them on. :wink:
