I've only been able to do 3 zwift sessions on the saddle. However, one might be able to argue that trainer sessions might be an even better way to judge the comfort since you are sitting so much more than out on the street. Regardless, so far it is just as good as the power expert I was using. The first 5 minutes or so, I can feel that it is a new saddle that needs braking in. The padding is still super stiff, so I'm sure over some time it will be even better. I do like the softer nose when I get down into the drops and spin it out.

I got the adaptor on and installed. Much better clearance now. Dont think I need that protective take on there but threw it on for now just to be safe. Also got the steering tube properly cut and left a 2.5mm spacer above, but man it looks so much better.

Nick, I didn’t expect any less from this build and it’s obviously come out perfect. Well done my friend. Enjoy the new ride!

Hey,
What a sweet looking bike! Enjoy!
BTW, I have a diffferent bike than yours but the same brakeset and the same wheels and the same cables. But my brakes dont stop very well. I mean they are carbon but my previous Reynolds carbon wheelset stopped really well. I had initially thought that it was because of the cables (not known for their stiffness) but since you have the same cables, I had to ask: how well does your bike stop?

maybe my brakes were not set-up well by my LBS? Or is their anything I have to know regarding cane creek brakes?
thanks!

Hmmm that's intesting. I don't know what would be different in the set up. Are your brake cables old and stretched? Maybe set them closer to the rim surface so it has tighter feel. Toe the brake pads in perhaps? Not really sure what else to suggest. I'm using jagwire brake cables BTW.

The Di2 aluminium cover is a high sheen black which stands out on a matte finish frame. Used a matte finish vinyl over the plate and now it matches the frame perfectly! #Allinthedetails
