If it rides half as good as looks, it's a great riding bike.

Also, those DA 9100 levers have the longest reach I've ever seen, including 7800, which is saying something.

I noticed that, yes. The hoods feel great.

These work really well on raw Ti. Actually works well on all bike finishes.

You never answered my question from before...is that an old school Flightdeck? Works with 9100?

Oops, your right. I must have missed that.

Goes along with the whole " never gonna go electronic " vibe, doesn't it?
