Carl, Here are the pics of the bike. (sorry these are SO LATE) First, I want to say thank you for building me the nicest riding road bike I have ever owned…period. The cream color looks great with the brown Strong logo and ENVE logo and brown King headset! It is built with all Campagnolo Super Record, ZIPP 303's, Thomson post and stem, Easton carbon bar, etc.,etc.. I am in love with this bike and that, my friend, is an understatement! Thank you again and I will cherish this work of art till I cannot pedal it any more!!!
Hey Carl and Loretta,
Material: carbon fiber
Ok, no second thoughts on this purchase! I put her together Tuesday night, took an hour ride last night to get use to it and make some adjustments. I didn’t get along too well with the SMP seat and as you can see from the pic I swapped to the Fizik which is what I use on my other bike. I just happened to have this black/white seat that a friend dropped off as he didn’t need it. I think it looks great on your bike.
I enjoyed my first ride last night but tonight was the group ride and it was fun! I just had a blast, I told myself to take it easy and stay in the back. Somehow I found myself near the front and even pulled in some sections that I normally hang on for dear life!
It’s such a pleasure to have a bike that just feels right. It’s so nicely balanced, responds quickly, and handles like a dream. I also like the SRAM and had no problem adapting to it. Notice I also have the Speedplay pedals you recommended and I do like them. So, it appears you have another happy customer Carl.
Hopefully I’ll have more pics from the Big Dam 100 ride coming up the 29th. This should be a challenging ride with some good hills.
