    Evo Bling Part 2, new weight

    Here is the latest on the Evo bling fest. CNC brakes installed, the weight of the caliper and the new bike weight, sub 14 pounds! That weight includes bottle cages, clincher wheels and tires and not the lightest saddle in the world. Very happy camper...headed to Solvang this weekend...

    See the original Evo Bling thread here...

    Very nice! Those CNC calipers look like the Planet X calipers. Where did you get them?










    Umm...ah...err...did you slam the stem yet?

    I just got them for my Felt AR1.
    they *look* awesome.
    they are probably more aero than my prior SRAM brakes, since they are much smaller and don't extend beyond the bike's frame.
    they stop the bike just fine.

    but they are a ***** to set up and keep centered.

    Well, so far so good for me, but I don't have that many miles on them yet. I installed them, and then took them to my LBS of choice and had them fine tune them. Riding more tomorrow and a half century this weekend, so we'll see. But initila road tests were great, stopped like Sram.
