That 650b is really great, just looks perfect and super useful/fun. Ride that thing any place.

This one was close enough to my size that test riding was pretty easy, and I've got to say that as much as I love Di2, this mechanical shifting is as good as it gets and the parts are pretty darn light. Really surprised by the "shadow" rear derailleur, this thing is on a serious diet from more traditional RD's.



Next is Rob's Strada Fango, setup as a 1x11 with Shimano Deore XT Di2 RD, a SRAM Force 1 crank, custom XT to Velocity Blunt SS wheels and Rob's well loved Brooks saddle. Gearing is a 42T up front mated to a super wide 11x46 cassette in the back, there shouldn't be any hill that Rob can't get up with this one! Also love this Metallic Sea Foam Green, it's one of my favorite colors. With the rear brake line routed inside the downtube along with the Di2 wiring, it makes for a super clean looking bike, imo.
