Man. The level of "if you got nuthin' nice to say..." around here is remarkable. That was actually what I had on hand for this morning's shakedown ride and I was sure it'd be a jumping-off point for a brief round of hilarity so I took a picture.
Oh well.

In other news, climbing sure is a different experience.

Not bad. So when are you going to install the rest of the C-Record group?

IONO, dude, it just whooshed right over my head. If it had been a B66 I would have got it.

It was an "OK, boomer" moment.

5600? 6600? With a compact crankset? I like the swoopy carbon fiber and the semi-integrated seatmast. Several years ago, I bought a '16 Trek Emonda ALR6 frameset. Built it up with 7800 components, but 7700 shifters. Silver '17 Raleigh Grand Sport (or similar) wheels with a Campy freehub that I put a 9-speed cassette onto. It got a few groupset combos after that but it worked great and was incredibly light.

6600, the "ice grey" Ultegra SL introduced in '07. 10-speed. This bike checked off most of the boxes I had for my first foray into CF, and the compact crankset is nice... gonna have to go more "compact" than this 50T if I actually wanna use the whole cassette though.

Right now things feel a bit sluggish from years of sitting unused; time to tear this sucker down and get to work!

Oooh, I like SL. Had a set of 6603 shifters and built up a bike to be sold. Incredibly snappy and sharp. Crummy cables/housings replaced and some spray Tri-Flow lubricant in all crevices of the shifter mechanisms should work a treat. Brought back some 7800 shifters (and 6400 before that) that "air shifted" in below 40-45 weather. Big fan of Tri-Flow, even if Dumonde chain lube (dark green kind) smells better.

Thanks for the tip. Was planning to research options for de-gunking the shifters, will go with your recommendation.

You're welcome! Spray and shift them up and down a ton just to work it all the way around. I had problems finding a good lubricant as WD-40 has the spray and de-gunking feature but is definitely not a lubricant. Other lubricants were bottle/dripping in only, which doesn't get to where it needs to. It's a messy process and the Tri-Flow will spend a little time re-dripping out of the shifter (down the brake lever blade, naturally) after a good session. If you're planning on replacing the bar tape, or keeping it, removing it and all the cables, yet leaving the shifters mounted, may be a good idea as you still have access to all the slots and holes of the shifter (for spraying into) while also having a sturdy platform to actuate shifting up and down as you spray. I would think it wouldn't need more than about 30 seconds to a minute of spray and fidget per shifter, but every shifter is on a case-by-case basis and you'll hear and feel proper snappiness when you do.
