Did you get a chance to try this out? If so, what front chainring configuration were you pairing it with?

Many thanks for the report.

TooMany,

How did the ride compare to the Comotion Carrera? Also, what kind of wheels did you put on it?

Have you picked out a frame yet? We're trying to make the choice now -- it's hard to find appropriate bikes to try, so I thought it would be worth comparing notes.

Is the Bushnell eccentric already compatible with inside Di2 wiring, or does it have to be drilled to accommodate the wire?
