Been waiting for a proper bike shot with the Darimo Seatpost and the longer 110 Extralite stem. I'll keep the 100mm Extralite around for the day my back convinced me that I need something shorter!

Still not a day goes by where I don't look at her in the garage and smile!

13.91lbs



And an updated photo of my pain cave now that it is finally finished (For now at least )

Video idea - I would like to hear a review of those rollers. Looked into them once, but got very mixed reviews online.

For the last year I've thought about getting CLX50, but was recently offered something similar. A smoking good deal on a used set of Roval CLX32 that are in like new condition. With the hub, they came in at 1344g. Little heavier than I was anticipating, but still a significant weight savings compared to my Enve 4.5.

-Swapped out the DT Swiss internal 18t star ratchet with a 54t. Has instant engagement and sounds like a swarm of murder wasps that ate up a Chris King R45!
-Using 42mm Tubolitos
-DA 9100 cassette 11-28 (I know I could save wieght going to a sram cassette, but it is SO much louder)
-GP5000 28mm clinchers
-KCNC TI Skewers

New bike weight (Everything minus Garmin computer) - 13.39lbs/6.07g
I'm pretty happy with that.







18t


54t



I've never been a fan of shallow wheels (Aesthetically speaking), but the more I look at them on my bike, the more I like them!

That is a 'pain cave'?!??! Mine is a converted carport that has a gravel floor, no power and spiders crawling everywhere - now THAT is a pain cave!

Cool bike!

So what you're saying is our pain caves are exactly the same

Good luck with the back. What treatments have you tried?

Not really sure what your beef is with me dude, but I didn't mention the brand or say a word about the specific part. I simply posted a photo of my bike. YOU are the one drawing attention to it here. Stop jacking my threads. If you don't like my content, don't click on the threads that display my bikes.

Nick, keep that build looking great. I'm been running an OSPW on the Record 11 for some time now since I bought it when it went on sale at CC. It was on the Storck and now its on the Lysnskey and no complaints as it shifts just as smooth as the OE pulley/cage. I'm sure the gains are marginal, if not minimal at most. Aesthetically, I love it.
