Nice bike!

dat drop.

It looks more extreme without context. In the real world, I would take more. Saddle is a few mm up and bar is now on the cap but I still could go down 2cm. My arms are too long and I get lazy sit up instead of keeping elbows bent.

How does the bento box fit when the stem is so low?

in case you were wondering, the 36 spoke nashbar special wheelset is every bit as heavy as it looks.

that is a proper set of training wheels

what mini-pump is that? How is it?

Fudgy, have you had any trouble with the seatpost clamp? Did Scott get that figured out?

I had originally a 2012 frame and yes, plenty of problems with the seatpost clamp. That was warrantied when the little clamp-plug pushed into the toptube carbon. The warranty frame had a bad bb shell that was too loose. Eventually the whole bb moved around. That was warrantied and they sent a 2013 model frame. This one has been relatively trouble free, though I did discover last week the seatpost had slipped a bit. I cleaned it, re-pasted it, and re-torqued it down and it's held for ~100mi so far. Only time will tell for sure.

It's still a ****ty over-designed interface that puts way too much structural responsibility on the pushing-strength of carbon.

Otherwise, I love the bike. The ride is great, it's very stiff even when I'm swole to 185lbs.

REx, it's a lyzne road drive pump. I give 4/5 stars. Nice flexible hose, gets to high pressures, only dislike is that the tube doesn't give much of a handhold when inflating. Thankfully I don't use it much.

Not the best photo but I wasn't seeing much other Ti so I thought I'd add my '05 Merlin. For racing it wore other wheels this year ( well thrashed Ksyriums and later some Easton), but this has been my go to rig for hard training and my foray through Cat 5 and into Cat 4. The frame has probably logged 25-30k miles by now ( not all by me...I got it as a retired racer/trainer a few years ago) and the Record 10 group is going strong I guess on the 3rd right shifter rebuild (?)...love this bike even though I have a "plastic" bike or two that most would consider a more proper race rig.

almost looks like you are running a > 17 degree stem there. and no cane creek bars either

Herbie53 10-12-13 02:23 PM

fancy JRA rig Shovel.:thumb:

shovelhd 10-12-13 07:43 PM

Chappy, correct.

furiousferret 11-01-13 07:03 PM

She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid. I've made a lot of special modifications myself.

It's the bike that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs. I've outrun Specialized bicycles. Not the low end beach cruisers mind you, I'm talking about the big Di2 Shivs now.

I got some all black Jet 50's that really make it pop (except they're on my TT bike and I'm too lazy to swap the cassette to Campy)

Ygduf 11-01-13 07:29 PM

what frame, or frame mold?

furiousferret 11-01-13 07:35 PM

Pedal Force RS2. Comes out to about 16.5 lbs.
