    Ask me how to drop the chain into the smaller ring on a stuck 5700 fd with my unclipped foot during a climb; fun stuff. At least no dirty fingers just riding buddies saying wtf. BTW, love your new bike HOT!

    Nice looking bike. I think the bike would look much better without the wheel decals, but thats just my thoughts. Why do you have HED (Which looks like a number sticker pack you picked up from isle 7 at Walmart) on Bontrager wheels? Is 65 a race number?

    Yep the 9000 shifting especially the front is pretty spectacular, I ran it for a while while waiting for my 9070 which although I prefer certainly not necessary! You will never experience a dropped chain again so long as you're adjusted properly

    The bike as it is weighs 15.88 pounds. Soon I will probably switch saddle to toupe pro and pedals to stainless steel instead of chome mo. This will save me an astounding 40g!!! For the price of only an extra testicle.

    Hot or not?
    Only had it a month and a half and already have almost 400 miles on it. The Di2 is sweet!
    So I'm a bit of a weight weenie tho i know it makes little difference at my level of riding (mediocre but getting better). BIke weighed in at 14 pounds before pedals were added. At least the lightweight makes it easier to carry if I break down miles from anywhere.

    Took it on 83 mile strava gran fondo on mlk day in 30 degree temps. Such a comfortable bike. At the fitting they changed to a shorter stem as I've got some back issues.

    While the short stem is a little of a detractor, I say the bike looks so mean and stealthy it's hot! I am also a little jealous of your sub 15lbs....

    I agree. White stem as well. I'm not normally a fan, but it would work well here.

    Minneapolis love! Sweet bike. I ride by the Appleman and Peacock Groove shops on my way to the river, every once in a while. I'd love to peek around in there sometime.

    edit - Is your bike going to NAHBS?

    Thanks.

    No, the bike is not going to NAHBS. Couldn't wait to ride it, although the weather is really....here in Illinois right now.

    Very very nice! Similar to gc3's parlee. Love the simplicity of it. There is a lot of win in there.

    The Appleman is awesome, I've seen it elsewhere. Full custom with all sorts of unique Appleman touches.

    Originally Antwerp, but we lived in Grimbergen.
    We now live in Illinois since 2012. Wish we had a bit of your weather over here so I could take the bike out for a ride.

    Correct, Matt has been interviewed in relation to the upcoming NAHBS show and the bike was shown on a couple of websites (even Japanese )

    That's around 50km of where my dad lives. And the weather around here isn't too great either.

    Well..... the chainring/cassette combo not set correctly. Seat bag and rear reflector need to go for the presentation. Seat post, errrr, ummm, YUK! So, me no like. Nun hot.

    Ride it anyhow, and ENJOY!
