As far as cages, black cages. There is already a lot of blue, you don't need more matchy matchy, specially because the blue on the cages will not even match the frame.

Nice frame and very nice build.
yes

New legs are in bound for next Friday. These were the result of many months of hunting. Capture__40082.1502998016.jpeg

Excellent choice! My off-to-paint Alliance allroad will wear similar shoes, albeit Ones, in tubular disc mode. Same 35mm profile, dark label

After loving my Shamals I'm just imagining how good the Boras will ride!

The between terrible weather and a recent cold I've not ridden the new Boras yet. I did install a new Brooks C15. So the net weight loss is zero! It did get down to 15.74 with pedals, cages and computer mount.

My buddy Nelo installing the saddle after I tried about 12 before choosing the Brooks. It called my name!

Im loving it. I really think every road bike should have a chain hanger. I like how yours fits the chain perfectly. The kink/bend in the CS looks really good in the pic where the saddle is being installed.
What size are you riding?

That’s a beautiful bike. I really dig the paint job.

Always liked the paint scheme on your ride. And great to see that someone is still active with Livestrong!

Thanks Rob. We had a blast yesterday. A very fast century of 4:15. The group was well organized and friendly.

It's interesting to see how the organization has changed over the years. It's now mainly affiliated with the Dell Medical Center.

There was a good turnout too. The weather was ideal and the ridership was the largest I've seen in several years, at least it felt like it.

Oh, and the tri bottle thingie didn't work. My bottle launched into space at mile 12. So much for good ideas.

I use a rear mount system since I use a track bike for Road - Arundel Mandible cages have NEVER let me down - you may even tweak the angle a tad should you wish to keep current cages.

That's always been a very sharp looking bike. I like the level top tube (unless my eyes deceive me) and the 44mm non-tapered head tube. I've always thought the tapered 44mm head tubes look odd.

Thanks man! It actually has a 4 degree slope. The ground isn't level there. Max and I discussed top tube angles and it boiled down to his recommendation of 4 degrees. I said, "Okay." I figured he knows more than me on geometry, tube-mix, ride quality and intended use.

The input I gave him, "I like to ride fast centuries." He made all the calls on the geometry once I decided on db tubes.

It's funny, every time I ride the bike I'm simply thrilled with it.

Today I'd not ridden in two weeks, family, school, work...I looked at my hand position, bars over the front hub, cadence, my shadow, how I felt and thought how well the bike and I fit and work together. I've had 5 custom bikes and this one nails it.
