just kidding of course. Does look a link or 2 too short but I have had cables that look short and brake just just so to me, as long as it brakes the same, good with me.

I am not usually a fan of aero bars on some bikes, works great on this one though and I am sure very comfortable.

Yeah maybe I'll add a link or 3 and see how it lines up.

I should just pull the trigger on some ee brakes and call it done lol

The Planet X brakes really aren't that bad - I've had this pair for ~3-4 years. But they definitely don't stop like EE. They're also a fraction of the price.. so..

I've had no issues with my planet X calipers and they stop very well for me. In fact better than my friend who has DA 9000 on his older style enve 3.4. I've enjoyed mine a lot. No reason to change other than for blind factor. I've got my eye out for a good deal, but it's gonna have to be a really good deal for me to do it.

Haha, yeah I'll be holding off on that one. IF anything, I'll be getting a new fork in the future and putting a 10 or 15mm under the stem. I'm not riding anywhere near as much as I was in years past due to my kids sporting events and I'm not getting younger.
