Those are fine looking bikes!

Patriot1. I was just noticing the photo of the stem cap. I’m not sure if my Roll is different but it looks like your stem cap is like the one on my Trek FX3. My Roll has a much different stem. Not sure how to describe it but certainly not round on top. More like a one piece design with a slot running down the center and sloping down the entire length of the stem. Just curios if there are different Rolls. Mine is a 2017 0r 2018 model and the Comp X1.

Thats a good question, surely sounds like a different design. Our Rolls are 2019ís according to our lbs and the color choices. Interesting.

Sure is. Look at my photo on post #43 where I was asking about a mirror. BTW I have settled on a different one I took off another bike I had.

Thanks ! The bag is waterproof which is important for my purposes. Both the rack and bag are Axiom products.
