I wish new bikes looked this good/had this much character. Looks awesome, did Shimano ever do an aero bidon?
the ax bidon was "aero"
Glad you like it! It’s actually alright. It looks steeper than it feels, maybe the photo angle. The ergo took a bit of playing with for it not to look all wrong.
Great looking ride! The 7400 groupset fits it beautifully.
Thanks, yeah I think it’s come together well. Almost as good your kestrel!
If you can maybe upgrade the whole group set to 7700 series instead? Wouldn’t look too out of place.
Only saying this as the 7400 series brakes are terrible at best (even the 7403 dual pivot isn’t that great)
Absolutely love it. Think the ergo stem sets it off IMO. Just the right amount of bonkers.
I actually pieced together a whole 7700 groupset during the slow hunt for the wheelset and that was the initial plan but for some reason then wished I’d gone 7400 and coincidentally the guy who sold me the wheels had a groupset going so bought them together.
I’ve got 7900 brake calipers on there anyway, not bothered about the mismatch and think they sort of work with this frame. Wouldn’t look right on your Look though...
Thanks. Yeah I think so too. Only after messing about with the angles tho, looked weird for a while. Flipping the middle section did the trick.
Tempted to put a TT chainring on it, but that may be the step too far. Done for now, just need to actually go and ride the thing properly...
TT chainring sounds reasonable
