Stick with the Arundels - look and function better.

+1. There are enough black accents on the frame to carry the Arundel's, which are excellent cages.

Very nice bike btw.

ahhh - welcome to the club from FF50 :welcome:

I still smile every time I go to the garage and see mine, let alone ride her!

Presumably that's blasted w/polished and the brown anodising?? My wife almost went insane with my procrastination on which colour to choose for graphics!

Very nice...

Thanks!! About the chainrings, first used them on my other bike since i was looking for a black chainring to match the all black build, then i seem kind of liked it especially when spinning on lighter gears it feels a little bit different than the round ones, so i decided to use them again on this build :D

Excellent build! My only suggestion would be to change the seat post collar (seems a bit chunky) and get one a bit more elegant or perhaps in matching ti. Other than that perfect w/ the lightweights!

Absolutely not!

King cages look 1000% times nicer than arundels and in what way do they function better?
Sorry mr tart that's just a bit of a lame statement..
They both top load only, hold bottles well enough that your not gona spit any bottles and weigh about the same weight. I'd even give the edge to the kings in over all strength and durability, king cages are lifers they'll out live most frames.. They just don't look great on a carbon frame :mrgreen:
But on a lovely raw Ti frame they look very sweet

I was just going to respond and say the only thing I would change are the black spacers, but it looks like that is being taken care of :thumbup:

Stunningly beautiful, well done to you and the guys (and girls?) at Firefly; they seem to be putting out some great products.
