First ride today after the winter break. It's fantastic riding with a bike weighing 7,2 kg instead the 9,2 one i rode in the last months...

Yes they really do! I think it´s because the very oversized downtube :)

Sounds bad and hope you are OK! Yes the new Ultimate looks very good!

Thanks. It's a sanded FSA SL-K crankset with a Quarq Cinco spider and Rotor chainrings.

Not sure - are tan sidewalls like Veloflex Roubaix and low profile rims like Campy Neutron tubular a fine idea or not?

Low profile alloy rims didn't fit my Aeroad... the frame is simply too beefy. Had to let the Extralite's go... :)

That is a great build. Sometimes I wish I was shorter. Bikes look so good in that size.

Love it Lone Wheeler looks great with the Lightweights. I love my AL as much as my CF. Where did source the Syntace stem?

Cannot wait for better weather here in the Uk so I can get my white CF out to play. Currently debating adding a splash of green the break the black and white up on mine

Hi, Syntace stem came from Bike24 in Germany, I have used them a few times now and they have been great.
