I'll probably share my Cane Creek black/black Strados [very quiet] with Ultegra cassette from my Fuji commuter until I get another wheelset. That could help with my parking/storage issue for now.
I'm debating another $100 to get an Nashbar ISIS BB / Compact crankset that is all black
. The current BB is Ultegra but it was used and I'm getting a knocking sound from that area. The crankset is 165mm 105. I do have the Ultegra 170mm that was planned for the Mercier [tought I might keep that low cost with the 105].
Korval is Ships
See my Hyperlite 411 it's the photo model on OutRiderUSA web page
