What road bike do you have?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

What road bike do you have?

It's my first carbon frame so I have nothing to compare to, however I have not noticed any flex when climbing or sprinting. Plus it's a steal at £250 for frame and fork!

Nice... love those shallow Zipp bars. What's the weight on it now (as shown)?

PS: Are you missing a tooth on the largest three cogs? I was thinking maybe but then noticed that three were missing one. Is that a Red thing?

red cassettes have a tooth missing off each cog
