Can't help but agree with this. My Duende is much less comfortable on my Lightweights. With your SR11 a set of Hyperons would be my choice, but stick with the Veloflex.
Perhaps a Dorico post too, or a Miche Supertype?!:
i would summarise my choice of equipment like this: do we also want to maximise the ride experience for our money, or just focus funds on the 'looks' of the fantastic bikes in this forum?
in my case i already had the wheels for 4 years.
i cannot say what people would do in my shoes - but i would not sell such a top-rated set of wheels secondhand to replace them with heavier wheels for cosmetic reasons.
i do appreciate why that is a non-relevent personal detail to other forum members purely reviewing whats in front of them.
the all-day comfort issue was solved - thanks to the forum - by running veloflex tyres at reduced pressures.
i am not against traditional wheels - i also have a pair of trad tub rims on classic campag hubs/32 spokes on a trek.
they are relatively inexpensive, uncomplicated wheels that look good and roll real nice,
but from personal knowledge they do not make every ride an 'event' on such a 'modern' high performance focused 'race' bike as the marcelo.
in pre-build i also checked out the cosmetics of black wheels with black conti continental tyres (see below).
i know people on ww do prefer all black, but in this case, i will stick with white handle bar tape and tan sidewalls.
i kept black handlebar tape on for a few months and indeed the forum seemed happy enough with that, but it was not really 'me' - at least on this build - and now i am happy i changed, because i didn't really like it, but thanks again for letting me know your thoughts
Go back to black tape, lose the lightweight logos and it's perfect for me. The only peg I've loved, the rest I've seen arent close to this bike, it's brash and beautiful. The wheels make it, lookswise. Like I say, not a fan of pegs at all but really love your bike.
hmmmm, thanks crazyerrol, thats generous of you. i might give the logo removal some thought
This bike needs some more love IMO. Had another scan through the pics today, def one of my favourites here.
thanks for your kind comments CrazyErrol.
actually i was looking at your new build and the wheel depth you've gone with would have really suited the peg too.
since my last post i am making some changes to the peg.
i've already removed the wheel logos, and now have to eat humble pie on the forum and put black tape back on
secondly, i ordered some arundle mandible bottle cages today.
i am still resisting black tyres since it makes the wheels look even deeper than they do now which the bike doesn't really need.
also coming soon is a custom carbon saddle combo from Jure Berk.
i am especially looking forward to that item and will post an update when the time is right.
Congrats on such a nice bike, nicest peg i've seen
the saddle combo weight is about 150gms with the uncut post. more important, its bespoke and in keeping with the performance this bike offers.
still with white handlebar tape, but now the white lightweight logos have gone i think i will eat humble pie and go back to black tape.
any more thoughts on the current tape colour?
shallower wheels would be better for the cosmetics. maybe that will come, but not for the moment.
i do continue to feel privileged to ride such a machine.
