New Bike, Part 2

Finished bike is just over 15lbs ready to ride. : )

I'm really happy with the ride itself. The bottom bracket is absolutely huge, so there is no flex at all in it. However, the ride is genuinely vertically compliant, resulting in a less than beaten back end (my previous road ride was a scandium alu frame). It climbs extremely well either sitting or standing. It also sprints very well with that stiff bottom bracket. I think the oversized front end contributes to the good sprinting characteristics.

I need to ride it some more to get it completely dialed in, but I'm very happy!
