No OSWP. It's a weird fad. Keep the bike classic, lightweight and sexy.

Agreed, OSWP will take the eye away from the frame. Something so large and out of proportion destroys the visual harmony of one of the few beautiful modern frames. Actually, they look awful on all frames but if form follows function...

I don't know about the Ceramicspeed stuff, but check out SLF Motion.. US made stuff from the heartland. He can set you up with pulleys for your current set up, or do you up an Oversized setup with a new set of cages.

Yeah I haven't always been a huge fan of them, therefor I hadn't done much research on them. Thought maybe someone would have some good reasons to push me towards them. The more research I do, shows that its not always an upgrade piece and can cause issues, especially with etap.

Personally I've opted to go with standard size jockey wheels with ceramic bearings in all of my road bikes. Currently, I like the BBinfinite sets because they can regularly be had for about ~$100 with coupon. Combined with quality BB bearings it noticeably decreases the drivetrain friction when spun by hand. On the road t "feels" faster to me, and while that might all be in my head, the placebo effect is a powerful one.

Interesting. Sram Etap uses Cermaic bearing pulleys and mine spin fairly freely. Probably not as much as the BBinfinite pulleys, but Id be curious how it would feel. I like that they use a rubber pulley wheels so you dont have to worry about metal pulleys being loud as it rubs against the chain. I'll keep my eye open and do some research. Thanks for input

Pulleys should probably be replaced more often than most of us do, but those BBinfites recommend every 4,000 miles.

These are an ultra-high performance racing part designed to give you an edge on race days. We recommend changing the pulleys every 4,000 miles, or about the life span of two chains, for maximum reliability and performance.

Doesn't feel like an upgrade to me for how I ride. I would need to buy 2 per year.

Well good news and bad news. Bike is built up and it looks absolutely stellar! Having issues with the shifting on the chainrings but will bring back into have then try to dial in and fine tune. If not, ill simply go with praxis, no problem. Other thing is that it is SO much heavier than i imagined it would be!!!! 14.4lbs with pedals, cages and garmin. Not happy about that AT ALL considering the parts i have on it. But i knew the enve 4.5 clincher and saddke would be a weight penalty.

Im looking into swapoing out the power expert for the sworks power mimic which is no different in shape, has carbon rails and shell with the level 2 padding i want which results in a 70g savings.

Will get a picture up in the morning.

Do you have a target weight for the full build you’re shooting for?

You might want to weight until you’ve gotten it out on the road to judge the weight. I know it won’t change the gram total but some bikes I’ve had ride lighter than their weight, if you know what I mean. See how she rides. It might also give you ideas where you could shave weight without impacting ride quality. Super psyched to see photos!

To be honest, I was hoping for 12.8-13.2lbs. Maybe I had unrealistic thoughts, but with the uber light weight parts I put on it, I thought it was going to be noticeably lighter than my evo. It's heavier. BUT I do love how it looks and the build quality of everything together is superb. I'm still super positive about the investment, but just a little disappointed in the weight. I'm a bit concerned with the chainrings as well, but hoping it just needs an adjustment. It was dialed in on the bike rack, but when I got it home, it wouldn't shift to the large or small ring at all (On the rollers or on my bike rack). But I'm trying not to stress over that right now and just assume it is a tweaking thing.
