    Is that the polarizing dura ace model where they used smaller cogs+chainrings?

    What I meant is, that it's neither of those reach settings. And the shifter is brand new, so apart from it being fucky from production, I doubt I rounded the bolt

    So, did anyone of you encounter something similar? The shifter is working properly, but it isn't seated in line with the brake paddle. Aand it ain't the reach setting.
    It's possible to move the paddle inline, as it should be, but after any movement it comes as pictured.

    Thanks in advance

    Well, those I've had lying round. True though.

    But comfort was the deciding factor, not weight. Also the price. ~650e for frame, fork, headset and seatpost is a steal

    It's been said before. Climbing's all about technique; where you need to overcome the geometry of the bike, mostly the height of the front end which is optimalized for descents (otherwise, suspension is negligible).
    Ass as far back as possible, while lying down on bars, to keep traction on the back whilst not wheeling. For tehcnical uphill sections, you also need to be in a relatively high gear so that you're able to pedal over the the rocks even in case of slippage. More aggresive tyres help with traction, though there's the weight right?
    Imo there ain't anything more energy-consuming than technical climbs
