Made a few changes recently, so I thought I'd share an updated pic...



Driver for the changes is that I no longer have a dedicated road bike (sold my Zanc... *tears*), so FF510 needs to be more road-capable now. Replaced the following items:
  • 1x Shimano 6800/Wolf Tooth drivetrain with new R8000 (50/34T rings, 11-32T cassette, clutch RD) and Jagwire Road Elite sealed shift cables
  • WTB Riddler tires (700x37) with Compass BJP (standard casing, tubeless)
  • Fabric Line saddle with Selle Italia SLR Superflow (taken off the Zanc)
  • Deda bar tape with Supacaz Super Sticky Kush (gunmetal color)

Initial impressions:
  • The new R8000 FD/RD cable routing is weird. The end of the cable points toward your wheel/tire.
  • Forgot how nice the BJPs ride. Not the easiest to set up tubeless (especially the second time around, so the casing was looser) but whatever.
  • First time trying Supacaz tape. First impressions are very positive: nice and cushy, good grip, and high-quality bar ends and finishing tape included.

No more changes planned. Maybe I'll ask the Firefly guys to add a 3rd water bottle mount at some point? I dunno. That is all. Thanks for reading.
