Just to break up the time, here's that irish green and signal yellow epic I was putting together 99% finished. Its fast too, picked up a 1st in Age category at the Epic on weekend.
Going to put a few small GT3 touches. Red steering wheel marker on the black grips. A manual 6 speed gear stick marker disk on the stem and GT3 Small logo from the wheel hub.

i have 10k miles on 2016 SL5 s work tarmac. it's a great bike. better than most italian imho and i had most of them.

prior to purchase 2017 SL6 s work tarmac ultra light, i tested F10 as well. the tarmac was better for me. lighter quicker twitchier (i ride one size smaller than i should) and only run 100mm stem.

it is way better than SL5, how much better? well i bought one 3 weeks ago and i bought another today

pink bar tape and orange bar tape

Good to hear. I'm waiting for the disc, motorcycle roots demand it. I've been on a SL5, want to run 28mm tires in the winter when it's wet and slimy but they rub on the old frame. Looks like your on both 23 and 25, fondo set up?

Very nicely done, tan leather saddle unexpected touch. Looks like you had fun designing the look and kit, the part I enjoy quite a bit. How do you like 1X with that cassette?

^ thanks. Was fun. One of key reasons was actually see Irish green and couldn't be happier. It is a green thats hard to represent. So fingers crossed for PTS on the gt3 incoming.

Been with 1 x cassettes now since they come back into vogue last few years. I don't think I would go back. Simple and clean. 1 x 12 is no problem, although has a tendency to go out of tune more so then the 1 x 11 on previous. Gear range is no issue. Gold looks the part

Had a great bicycling weekend. Was not planning on doing the Sourlands ride the day before NJGF (3300 ft elevation ride) but decided to join another rider as he was planning to do both.
Wanting to see where I stacked up compared to when I did NYGF back in May.
Shaved off 1hr and 22mins, covering 7 additional miles (granted elevation was an additional 89ft at GFNY).
