I've been without a road bike (eh...) for almost 3 weeks since I sold my CR1, so I've been doing most of my training on the MTB (yuck), Fixie (also yuck), and TT bike (not bad, but it has 20cm of drop = ouch on long rides).
Sooo, I was very happy that the build kit finally showed up today to put together Mr. Felt! The components seem kind of random mish-mash-y, but I purposely chose all of them for whatever reason...
Red Shifters, Rival Brakes (w/ Swiss Stop Black pads)/Rear Der, Ultegra Front Der, DA Crankset (or SRM when it's back from Co. Springs), KMC X10-SL Chain, Thomson Stem, Deda Newton bars, and a Spec. Toupe saddle.
I took it for a quick spin around the block tonight (it was dark by the time I had it all together), and it handles a *lot* better than my CR1 (though I was never a huge fan of the CR1's handling). Seems stiff, but we'll find out more as days go by!
Anyways, the pics suck because it's hard to take good pics indoors w/o good lights, but they'll suffice until I get it outside tomorrow!
