Thanks. I had the same problem with my Tune Skyline skewers with Serotta F3 fork. With My F3 i have to put a small spacer to avoid my Gen2 Obermayer sticker(near the hub) to rub with my fork.

Wow Steff, thanks for posting. I think there is a big WW crowd in France but generally don't post here (Velo Optimal usually). So thanks for sharing globally.
Since this build is pretty epic, I think it would be interesting to all, and valuable to some, to also include where you live [Dept.]/usually ride? (What distance, how much climbing, is this a race-only bike or everyday, what's your weight, are you a racer or a WW aficionado)?
Chapeau!

Wow awesome bike Steff! With those lightweight stickers I would remove two of them to just leave two - I think four stickers is too busy.

I live in France (franche comté) where we have small climbs (often less than 10 kms) but I prefer using this bike in the alpes and specially in the famous one (bonnette , galibier , alpes d'huez , madeleine...)
I'm not keen on long ride 4 hours is good for me
I have 3 cervelo so this one doen't use more than 3000 kms/year
I weight 64 kgr :oops: (I weighted 61 when I race)
This bike always be a 'holiday' bike because it is too expensive to race with

Thanks and you will have the same crank soon :wink:
for the stickers I m agree with you but I wanted to try but it is too 'flashy' for me so I ordered black :roll: :noidea: stickers instead

Perfect. :thumbup:

How do you find the braking with the corima red pads + lightweights?

I really liked them with Campagnolo Boras, but my next wheelset will be lightweights...

I have changed title so I would like to introduce now my old soloist that I just 'repaint'
In the beginning I would like to have carbon aspect so I remove all the color but aspect didn't satisfy me so I have decide to paint it in black
I would like to have nice bike less expensive I can so It cost arround 2500 euros with used parts
I will receive clavicula next week to put on the soloist

I don't know the French for porn, but those two are awesome examples of the bike variety!

Just a little paint sure makes your Soloist look much more updated. Great job on your rides.
Let's finish the ride with a 20% grade.
