That would be awesome, but it looks like it's just got cable stops not DT shifter braze-ons..

This bike has the full group, but anything will work. My other bikes have 9000 Dura Ace. Always DA chains and cassettes.

I honestly don't remember where I got this group from. I think some small bike shop on the east coast...recommended by someone on here. Early on when the full groups were scarce.

A few questions as I get ready to order a speedvagen.

What size did you get?
What is your saddle height?

Based on your previous bike sales, we probably ride a similar sized bike. This one looks nearly perfect to me in terms of proportions. Hopefully I'll be posting pics in July.

It's a stock 62cm bike. Their biggest.

Saddle height from center of bottom bracket to center of rails ( right now ) is 75.5 It can go up a couple of cm's.

I sent you a PM.

Thanks!

Thanks for info and pm.

No sharing ISP bikes. Even though I'm shorter than you my saddle height is quite a bit higher.

I don't know why, but speedvagens talk to me.

It's my curse! I have really short legs and a long torso...

They speak to me also. Their pedigree is in racing. After riding it for a few hundred miles now, I can see why they would be really popular with racers.

Last week, I ran out of r.der. battery. Fortunately, the chain was stuck in 21 and I toggled between 34 and 50-tooth chainrings to get home fairly comfortably. Now, I am keeping track of post-recharge mileage.

For the future...you could have swapped out the charged one ( front ) with the rear...

I know, but I was finishing a climb (half a mile remained), then had a 2-mile downhill home, so having a functional front derailleur seemed more important than rear, and I didn't want to keep dismounting and swapping back and forth. After getting home, I ordered two more batteries...

Steve, do you know whether SRAM is planning to bring batteries with greater capacity to the market? I ask, realizing that carrying extra batteries is minimally burdensome.

Do you use a Garmin 1000 or 520? It gives you a warning when the batteries are pretty low...so, you could have swapped earlier and made it through the ride. This happened to me once.

I don't know. Haven't heard anything. Minimally yes. Haven't had to use it.
