I run XTR race hydros on my Yeti SB.

Can't see Campy ever making a dent in the gravel/mtb markets at this point.

Nor would I see them caring for that matter.

As for a road version, I'm not holding my breath.

The op's Firefly is totally droolworthy as it stands.

Incredible bike in all regards.

well the new campy hydros paired with a potenza long cage derailleur will be perfect for the gravel market. I am pretty much running that but with athena and spyres.

I know campy does not care bout gravel but I like their stuff and I will make it work for what I need it. Its bound to happen, I will be surprised if we don't see campy hydro next year.

except this one doesn't have an ugly fork. This firefly is amazing, they can't make a bad looking bike.

I've done that as well with Campy cantis on my Merckx.

Work as well as Tektro 720s with Kool Stops.

It's the Parlee cx fork - had it painted and asked the bearing cap to be painted as well because why not.

Haha I do! Last one was brushed with polish logo. I wanted the logo to stick out more this time so bead blasted with polished. As much as I love their ano stuff - especially the purple shades - knowing myself, I'd tire too fast on it so I kept things simple and timeless (in my opinion). Besides, my team kit is already bright enough with its neon green accents haha.

Today is the first day I can ride the bike - bummer it's raining

Pacenti SL25 (I think) to white industry hubs. Tires are the 35c bon Jon pass from compass. I have the38c Barlow pass on my other bike which are lovely but thought I'd go for something less wide being this is now my only road bike - although with the rims they come close to a 38c on skinnier rims.
