    Yes.

    Holy smokes, that's pretty bold to chop up a high buck ring like that. I'd be a bit worried about flex under load.

    56 inch frame, 90mm stem (I tried the 54 with a longer stem but it did not ever feel right). Why do you ask? If it looks weird, it may be that my SRM setup is a 54/39.

    My height is 5'8.5"

    Here's my new bike. Ridley Excalibur with custom team paint, SRAM Force & Zipp 303's for racing & Williams Wheel System 19 for training.
    Total weight with 1 Al cage is 6.69kg (14.75 pounds) with the Zipps and 7.25kg (15.9 pounds) with the Williams. My first sub 15 pounder

    Initial likes/dislikes with SRAM Force.

    Like - looks great, no shift cables sticking out.
    Dislike - brake pads are a pain to swap out (cork pads for 303's) - When I put the cork pads in I can't reinsert the holding pin. Is this bad? I would think it would only be a problem if I were trying to brake while rolling backwards.

    The Zero G's and some of the other brakes I've seen don't have pins or set screws. I don't ride backwards very quickly (although I'm sure if you look back on the hills it can look like that at times) so it's never been an issue.

    Nice looking rig and pretty much goes with the kit, Eh?

    Might try the Q rings on the Tarmac this weekend. Gonna need everything I can find in the way of speed.

    Pizza I got tired of swapping out pads so I just bought another set of the pad holders and put the CF pads in them. Now I just swap out the how deal, it's faster and easier to deal with.

    I will use the IF for both races this weekend. I'm hoping to be on the new bike for next weekends race. I ordered a 2006 Fuji Team Issue frameset. I'm hoping it will be at the shop today for me to pick up.
