    Nothing wrong with the FSA cranks by the way.

    No, not custom built. I don't have a problem with the seatpost, though I do usually prefer a bit less compact a frame. The spacers are 3cm, probably will drop to 2cm or 25mm. The crank is a piece of ****! I don't know if you've ever ridden one but the nondrive-side crank fastening bolt come loose if you look at it, which is really not a characteristic I look for in a crank.

    p.s. I'll take 7800 over 7900 if given the choice, thank you

    no, its not.

    and you'll have the same power up the hill in the small chain ring using the proper cog to get the same gear inch as the cross chained big ring.

    I have had a similar thing happen on mine. The aluminum insert has become loose within the crank arm.
    Gonna see if I can get it warrantied.
    It's a few years old...

    I have FSA SLK cranks on my Cervelo P2C and I've never had a problem with them. The Cervelo is used in Oylmpic and Ironman 70.3 triathlons so it has to "work" for a living which means that it gets beat up pretty good so if there was an issue I would have experieced it. I have DA 7800 on the Cervelo and my daughter's Six13 and it works great. I also have some issue with the FD overshifting the 42 in front on my Cervelo but only if I'm agressive and shifting front and back deraillers at the same time. I hear that the chain guards can prevent overshifting in front. The only advantage to 7900 is that the cables can run through the bar and a slight weight adavantage but even many of the pros used 7800 at last year's TDF.

    And at this year's Roubaix and Flanders. Anyone notice that Cervelo Test Team and Saxo Bank, two teams notorious for their focus on their equipment, both switched to SRAM when 7900 became their only option with Shimano?

    Yes but I heard that was because Shimano would not commit to providing Di2 gear to them while agreeing to give it to other teams - most notably Sky.

    That may be partially true, but most of the top Cervelo riders went back to 7800 last year, citing its lighter action and better shifting performance. Saxo Bank switched to Red in the middle of last season, before Sky even existed.

    Awesome Paint on this Ritte. I am interested in some other angles. I can tell the non drive side is the blue while the drive side is black unless the inside of the frame is blue and the outside part is black. Awesome bike!

    Yep. Exactly what I was talking about. Fromt he first pic I couldn't tell if it just a left side right side paint scheme. But yes, Now I see, inside outside paint scheme. Pretty sweet.

    I recently got made fun of for using this phrase, but that Ritte deserves it:
    Boom shakalaka
    I love the paint and everything else looks good.
