Currently rocking the SE premium brew with a few switched components. Not a bad ride, but I have no real frame of reference yet.
My main reason for starting the wabi build was so I will have a loaner bike. I have friends who want to ride, but are too broke, or just haven't had enough fun on a bike yet to justify cost.
So I got the wabi classic frameset in the turquoise. Love the color, I will probably spray a ghost pearl on it to give it a unique "pop".
Bling aside... I am thinking of going with a wabi wheelset, nitto bullhorns/stem combo, omnium crankset, shimano clipless or egg beaters, and a brooks saddle.
I will post some pics when I start the build, I plan for this to be a sweet ride.
I just got my bike mechanics book off amazon...a big ass book btw...I have the "level i" mechanics tool set illustrated in the book, so I will hopefully be able to get this dialed in without a trip to the shop.
I also wonder if I would be better served with straps on my pedals vs. clipless. The main reason I went to clipless on the SE was problems with scrapping on corners. Does the Wabi have this issue?
