    I'd pass on a V1 even if it were my size.

    Cosmetic update to the vitesse noir

    Well, USPS finally delivered the 10mm carbon spacer so I could dress up the front end of the vitesse noir. The bar and stem are black carbon, so the cheap plastic stem spacers and aluminum top cap looked out of place. I already had a 20mm carbon spacer to place underneath the stem and a carbon top cap, but lacked a spacer between the stem and top cap. I bought a flat hex socket head M6 bolt and painted it black to match and also painted the top of the spacer, since the top cap doesn't completely cover it. This raised the stem 5mm, but after flipping the stem down, the bars are now a net 12.5mm (1/2") lower. I also tilted the saddle down slightly as it was bothering me when riding the drops.

    That looks soo comfortable. I'd ride that in a heart beat. You weight it yet?

    I haven't weighed it yet but it turned out lighter than I had expected. It feels solid as all hell and aside from dialing in a few things here and there, it's really comfortable. I may switch out the 90mm stem for a 70mm Thomson I've got sitting around because I may be a little too stretched out when out on the horns. Still experimenting!

    Rode my Leader 55 miles today, longest ride on it so far. The Tioga saddle got a bit painful after 40 miles. This is what I wore:
