just kidding of course. Does look a link or 2 too short but I have had cables that look short and brake just just so to me, as long as it brakes the same, good with me.

I am not usually a fan of aero bars on some bikes, works great on this one though and I am sure very comfortable.

Yeah maybe I'll add a link or 3 and see how it lines up.

I should just pull the trigger on some ee brakes and call it done lol

The Planet X brakes really aren't that bad - I've had this pair for ~3-4 years. But they definitely don't stop like EE. They're also a fraction of the price.. so..

I've had no issues with my planet X calipers and they stop very well for me. In fact better than my friend who has DA 9000 on his older style enve 3.4. I've enjoyed mine a lot. No reason to change other than for blind factor. I've got my eye out for a good deal, but it's gonna have to be a really good deal for me to do it.

Haha, yeah I'll be holding off on that one. IF anything, I'll be getting a new fork in the future and putting a 10 or 15mm under the stem. I'm not riding anywhere near as much as I was in years past due to my kids sporting events and I'm not getting younger.

Looks sweet, love the gold chain and sidewalls. Just enough contrast to offset the blackout. Plus, the super duper photoshoot - those environs could make my winter commuter look great. Congrats!
