Weather is kind of crappy out here right now, was suppose to snow but it rained a little bit. I saw a ray of sun come out and did a quick 13 mile loop to get the bike dirty.

so far so good, rides amazing. I was scared that I did not have enough setback (and to get a more setback topper custom made by English is $600 which I don't need to spend right now). The fit seems right on, might need to cut the ISP a couple of mm (I hate it on the lowest right now) but I am still deciding on that. The bike is stiff where it needs to be, its lively. The campy shifts pretty great (which is weird because it shifted pretty poorly on the stand), love the new front shifter.

Anywyas, I need to ride it much more but I am very happy right now.

they are similar to Tune AC14s, closed cam but still pretty light (not as light as the other stuff). However they don't seem to be tune and the only image I have seen of them ever before was on Contadors bike a while go so I am not really sure. I got them on ebay.

wheels are absolutely fantastic. They look good, light enough, great braking, nice to have power meter back again, definitely recommend.

How was the process working with Rob? Thinking of jumping in the queue sooner rather than later.

Not custom to myself, I bought it of the original owner, got lucky as it fits me very well.

I heard Rob's queue is rather long so I would probably jump on it. I kind of want to do the same
