Nice 8) How’d you do the v-brake at the rear without a cable stop?

If you just run a single outer all the way, that works.

Haha, Aero QR position ;)
It does shift. It's top end is decent enough. Thought it'd be too big for me however on tarmac its fine. Front end is a little high despite being slammed.
Compact chainset on this however the cassette is spot on. It can outrun a taxi in town and that's the main thing.
Tempted to run a road block and a short cage mech however if it's not broken don't fix it.
