EPS and Boras √
Took the Ridley out yesterday for its last ride on the Bora Ones. Those are on the De Rosa now.
Pretty hot bikes!
New ride. It's a 2014 model:
I knew this one was coming. And I did think about EPS and Bora, but I really couldn't get my head around components made in Romania being any more of a fit than those made in Japan and America. Since it seems we're surely talking about geography rather than function or technology.
But, in all seriousness, the Di2 hoods feel better in my hand and that was really all that mattered to me. Is there really a debate that EPS functions better than Di2 or vise-versa?
EPS (electronic) system components are made in Vicenza, but I was not allowed to see them being made, and carbon production was off-limits for photography.
i think centaur, veloce and lower end wheels mainly come out of Romania. (If it really manners)
What color bar tape/hoods? Blue, black, white?
Old school frame/fork = old school hot - but none of the rest.
lemond = not hot
Switch out the bar tape to black. I dont luke the aesthetics of thise bars. They are too ergo for my liking. The cages are a different blue than the blue on the frame so that is a no no in my eyes. If you're gonna match up colors they need to be exact, otherwise it looks horrible. So I would swap those out for black cages as well, though you could do white if you wanted.
