Rk, no roblem, would love to help.

MDCatV, the cablrs are Di2 wires. When tge fit is finallized, it'll be routed internally through the extrnsions, through the risers, and into the stem via basebar. But the finalized fit may not happen for a while. In the mean time i'll just tape them to the extensions.

As for my goals, Church Creek may be too long for me this year as i'll be focusing more on the 20-30 min ones in stage races. That said, i'll probably be doing Shenandoah, at least one Church Creek, and maybe a few 40k bike relays. In any case, i just don't want to get chicked by that tidiculously strong teammate of yours.

Thanks. The Scott engineers didnt design a downtube water bottle mount that will fit both a bottle and a battery. Ugh. Down the road i'll probably go internal.

Yes, I did go black cockpit and matte wheels. Got tired of shiny colorful stuff personally.

What's your tire/valve position, the suggested psi for the tire?
?? They are GP4000S clinchers on a wide 40mm custom built wheel w/Alchemy Hubs. Butane conti inners with the longer valve stems. At my weight, I run 105psi Front, 110psi Rear. Pretty much the same for tubulars.

My race wheels are a 56mm custom wide tubular with Tune Hubs.

For the former, i'm pretty disciplined on spending when it comes to non bike and apparel purchase (only times i go to restaurants is when i have friends visiting or if i'm on a date). though that isn't saying a lot as whatever i conserve gets spent on fancy bike stuff and nice cloth. I have hoarding tendencies for consumables, esp those that i know will no longer be produced (e.g. 7x Evo SC tubulars and two pairs of Shimano shoe covers). I tell myself i won't get any new bike stuff except the following: a wi-fli cassette, a Sram long cage RD, an aero helmet, a disc cover, maybe some used aero carbon clinchers, and payment to retrofi my Lynskey. But hopefully that should be it outside of chains, cassettes, etc.

also helps that rent is cheap-ish by DC standards, and i don't have any loans to pay off.

Unfortunately i don't have any to lend you as i dipped into my savings (horrible idea btw for the youngsters), but feel free to crash at my place. I'll cook you risotto or gnocchi if you find the food at the dining hall to be lacking

hack and Ygduf,

58 is the way to go! I am 6'3 35ish inseam and sizing down has put me "ontop" of the bike more. Needed a zero offset seatpost and a 130 stem, but the fit is great!

Here is my scott addict setup for the san bruno hill climb.

Good stuff. I vaguely remember the Addict from Henleyville. I recently (last week) picked up a Leopard in a 58 and it feels great. Much more responsive (need to get used to that...) and I feel more comfortable on it overall.

Ha, sorry, I guess my question didn't make sense. Most people put the writing on the tire where the valve is, so they can easily check the tire if they get a flat. I noticed yours weren't set up that way, however, both tires are lined up...hence the question. What part of the tire did you line up with the valve, would have probably been the better question. I was assuming you had them set to the suggested psi level written on the tire or something.

That's what I thought happened, but it was too good to pass up.
