    Evo bling

    _DSC5713mail.jpg_DSC5712mail.jpg

    Boyd 38CC's, Conti 4000's, Zipp Ti skewers, Praxis Works compact chain rings, Richey Super Logic Evo bars, WCS alloy stem and Super Logic seat post. And the new weight is...14.18 pounds! 15.5 the day it rolled out of the store. Lovely ride, unreal acceleration...

    Why on earth would I want to do that? I was professionally fitted and my bike is very comfortable to ride, so slamming the stem will only satisfy the BF bike police, not me. Thanks though...

    Yeah! Nice!

    Now I know how my someday-to-be black Hollowgrams will look like with Praxis rings!
    How is the shifting compared to the OEM rings? I just dropped a KMC X10SL chain on
    mine and it's even smoother than the Dura-Ace 7801 chain. Boyds...lovin' them!

    Not for nothing, but the SuSi started warming me up to Team Colors,
    but the EVO put me over the top. I'd have no problem rolling on one.

    Yeah, when I went to go pick up my CAAD at the LBS today,
    I noticed they sold my EVO that had been sitting there for months.
    It's okay, I'll wait for the next one.

    Is that a 54cm? How tall are you?
    Just looks like a very high stack for such an aggressive race bike.

    I just went from a -17 degree stem myself to a -6 degree stem.
    More comfortable, but I miss the -17er.
    I'll just have to get used to it I guess.

    When you get a chance, can you post some close ups of the crankset?

    Do you seriously think I'd spray paint it?
    I'd GLADLY pay a pro to shoot it!
    But I wouldn't touch any of the factory colors. They can all stay as-is.

    (sorry for the hijack OP! I digress. )

    Likewise. Sweet Evo Broid. Are the upgrades really upgrades?

    Were you fitted before or after you bought the bike? With the amount of seatpost and stem spacers, it looks like you could have used a size larger. Good that they were able to make it comfortable for you. Just aesthetics, though, very nice bike!

    I was thinking the same thing. Set back "and" hi-stacked stem?
    Don't know OP's dimensions, but I'll put him at 5'8"-5'10".

    Broid, stop staring at your bike and polishing it for a while and tell us how tall you are dude?

    you're gonna need more than yoga classes if you slam that stem. you should consider zumba.

    You all crack me up! Couple of other things, I also added the Shimano 7900 cassette and chain. With the chain, cassette and chain rings the shifting is very snappy and precise. Sram had already replaced the FD for me because of the well known shifting issues. I'm 5'10" and was fitted twice, first in the buying process to pick the frame size, 54cm, then after when I replaced the saddle and pedals shortly after I bought it. The guy who fitted me the second time was outstanding and really listened to me about how I ride. We discussed slamming the stem and may as I improve my form. The argument was, which do you change first, the bike or my form? Well, obviously, the form. So maybe stem later.

    Yes, I'll post more detailed pictures of the cranks, and detailed weights of the wheels on my other thread on wheel weights. Thank you all for your kind words, it as close to a dream bike as I have ever had. Anyone riding at Solvang on March 10th? See you there...

    I win!

    Seriously though, I started out with a high stem.

    As you ride more and more, the bike will force you to conform to it and
    you'll become more flexible and use those core muscles that are needed
    in cycling (if you already aren't at that level yet).

    My suggestion, practice riding with the stem in different positions and see how you like it.
    When I look at my bike, I can't believe it's comfortable to me, but it is. Much more so than
    my first road bike that had a low seat and high stem. FTR, I'm 5'9" and ride a 56cm.

    I'm just picking on you because I'm jealous! Enjoy it man! I ain't no hater!
    I don't know you, but I'm always happy when someone gets a nice rig like that.
