I’m planning change the hubs and spokes over the summer for something lighter/Better quality, also get black spokes as I think it will look better!
Also I know the photos are watermarked etc but I work in the store so it’s OK! : )

The chainrings really throw it off....Other than that. Nice!

very nice looking ride and set-up, with the exception of the front mech which appears to be set to be at least 5-8 mm too high.

very nice!

Love the lo pro look.

What could be improved is the lacing pattern up front. Only radial lacing looks right on a front wheel IMO.

Nice! I have the same bike (effectively) but w/o the carbon wheels and tubs, and with an ultegra 12-30T cassette which added 100g over the DA 12-25T; it comes up at 6.92kg so it's good to see where some weight could be lost. I'm really liking my roval SLXs though so unlikely to change until they wear out!
