    Last time I had it built up I had some quite stuff rims (hplus son) and 24c tyres and it was a bit harsh. The DT rims have a bit more give, come up a little wider, and the 28c tyres really smooth things out.

    It's very stiff for a road bike - the only bike I've ridden that's stiffer is my DF3. But it's not uncomfortable. Handling-wise it's one of the most direct bikes I've ridden - it does everything it's told and you can really chuck it about.

    Tl;dr - It's stiff but smooth.

    Never really got on with the Enigma Etape I built in December, so I ended up getting Dr Bob of Colorburn to squeeze in a quick repaint of my old Canyon AL - from grubby white to RAL 5004 Schwartzblau (black blue).

    Changed a few bits, but most things ported over from my Enigma.
    Full build list:

    Frame: Canyon AL 55cm - RAL 5004
    Shifters, brakes, mechs: Dura Ace 9000
    Cranks: Power2Max Rotor with Praxis rings 50x34
    Pedals: Speedplay stainless jobbies
    Bars: Deda RHM02
    Stem: Giant Contact 1 1/4"
    Seatpost/Saddle: Deda Superzero / Spesh romin
    Wheels: DT240 hubs on DTr460 rims 32h. Vittoria Cora 28mm.
    Cages: Arundel

    Thanks to Bobby for sorting out my rather sorry frame - excellent, friendly service all round. Will definitely be sending my R5 to you at some point :)

    Excuse the wonky left lever in the photos - injury related bike fit adjustment.

    ^ mine has been buggy as hell and SUUUPPPERRR slow since the most recent OS update.

    Also - has anyone else had issues with connecting to bluetooth headphones since updating to 8 (oreo - or whatever it's called)?

    Will be coming off the North Circ or in from m25, depending on traffic. Driving from club hillclimb in Kent.

    Has anyone got any advice for parking at Wembley? I've always taken the tube before, but I'll be arriving in a car on Sunday for the eggball (off topic I know).

    Will it take me an eternity to get in/out if we park at the stadium, or is it easier to park somewhere in the local area, or one of the car parks in the industrial estate car parks nearby?
