Check out the Mavic Cosmics or Cometes, particularly the new tubeless model.

Split the difference - took the Kirk, but got just a little chalant out there..

Just under 60mi, just over 7,000ft of climbing - a couple few PRs despite my current largess and "heavy steel bike". A grand day out all told.

Think I'm taking this one out today though

Dan,

I just bought a frame with more drop than usual. Where is this post you mentioned?

Was just referencing my first post above..

If you have the flexibility, it's possible to ride a shorter TT with more drop and a long stem and have your body in roughly the same cycling position, albeit activating slightly different muscles, as being on a bike with a longer TT and less drop. My Kirk has a 60cm TT. This one has a 58.3cm TT, but the angles are slightly different, and this one has significantly more drop. Both are a blast to ride. The Kirk is more like driving an M5 and this one is an M2 - amazing cars each, just one is light and feels like a stripped down track car, the other is more planted and feels mature and refined. Both are fast and fun. Just different experiences.

Late night rebuild and she's ready to rip again..

Lost a gear, added five teeth, and got that power checker.

Solo 46mi and 5k-ft. today. Massive PR on a long local climb 26:00 --> 22:00. Power PR too. This bike rips, but there's no denying that pushing a 39/29 up 10-15+% is not all that efficient for me or good for preserving legs on a long ride. They're gears for tears I guess . I probably could have gotten through another 20mi or so, maybe 30 --- that's probably the upper limit for this one as far as position, stiffness, and gearing goes though. It's fun to ride this bike fast.

EDIT -- I still love it, but after multiple close calls on my ride today and having "the talk" with my better half, I'm selling it, and am going to concentrate on gravel and MTB from here on out......have too much I still want to do with my life to roll the dice six times a week with drivers.... Maybe if I lived in a more bike-friendly place.....someday.
