Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Just thought someone reading this thread might like to know that the weight difference between Shimano 5600 Group and Ulegra 6800 Group was about 181 grams or .4lbs. I kinda thought it would be a little more, but still not too bad. (group excludes wheel hubs).

I don't have any experience with BB30 adapters, but some time ago I was thinking of getting a BB30 frame and running it with a Hollowtech II crankset, and those KCNC adapters seemed like the most straightforward and most effective option out there.

I'll be posting a thread of a lot of detailed picts with all my current upgrades.

Upgrades consist of:
Dura Ace 7900 Rear Derailleur
Dura Ace 7900 Shifters
Alligator Ilink cables (HUGE thanks goes out to @primov8 for sending them to me)
Dura Ace 7900 11-28 Cassette
Lizardskins 1.8 race tape (LOVE LOVE LOVE this tape!)
Ritchey Logic Curve UD carbon bars (I REALLY like the new shape coming from the Ergo Superlogic bars I had. 1 thing I will have to get used to is the non over-sized top bar that the Logic curve bars lack that the superlogic bars had.)

Thank you!

Yes, I'm hoping to sell this frame off so I can get my Evo. Problem is I'm very specific with wanting a 2 year old, popular frame and color (Black and white). Its been tough to find. But, I'll be patient since I have this little Gem!

Thanks @gc3. Still a couple things I would like to do, but it would involve a very high $-weight ratio for no performance gain what so ever. I think I will just save for a while and keep looking for my Evo frameset.

What do you think...keep Logo's on or take off?

My taste? I've never liked the looks of those logos, and to be honest I think they detract from the rest of your build. You know they're Enve wheels, so it doesn't matter if everyone else does. Take 'em off and/or replace them with some blacked-out decals, would be my vote.

Debadge the Enves. Just my vote for the $0.00 that it's worth.

Curious as to how to do that. Heat the decals with a hair dryer and scrape? Would something like Goo-Gone hurt the carbon fiber?

Agree. I'm not a decal fan, and that's not a pretty decal. I would either do no decals, or one black one per wheel per side.

i second this question as I ordered ghost decals for my wheels so I'll be needing to take them off without messing it up. I assume you can just carefully pull them off and clean the surface with something to remove any residue left from the old sticker? Question is what to use.

As hot as that bicycle can be, which is somewhere between comfortably warm and hot to the touch. I bet it rides great.
