Were those photos taken before or after you had your wicked way with it in the bed?

That's after I had "rough & tumbles" ( play fighting) with Ewan after I got home from work :-)

Is that a genuine 3T Aeronova? I'd been looking at that combo, but thought the weight was higher for the bar, around 220g?

How mush did the stem weight?

sweet ride though.

Yes they are .... Weight on scares is wrong - 209g - just reweighed them - had them touching the microwave for balance before lol ( and the scales are shit too)

Think the claimed weight in 205g - so reasonably close

Not bothered to weigh the stem tbh

Too excited to get it on the frame lol

Only reason why I've chosen that combo is a) I love flat top bars - I detest round bars.... Horrible on the hands ( I rarely ride the drops but on the top / hoods 99% of the time and b) I wanted to get a Garmin and have it out front on the stem

No other reason ( and it looks good too)

Getting chorus online as it's cheaper by nearly £85

Delivered to me on Monday

Bike build in the 5th perhaps next week if a slot becomes available

Really pleased the Doc is onboard. Was going to swap the bars and stem for fizik set up but I'm really not a fan of normal bars. Love the flat top sections so going to keep em. Kinda goes against the Dr's meticulous & fastidious methodology but it's my bike so he's cool with it.

Can't quite believe the wife has given me her credit card !!!! :lol:

You can't get a seat post to match the bars?
I had fun once. It was awful.

Just more cost

Cash which i don't have.

Give it s couple of months and I'll swap the seat post to a carbon 3T one if I'm bothered

Groupset ordered and will be here in 3 days.

Build starting and finishing on the 5th Feb
