i can somehow understand the disliking of the gold, but it looks much better in real life.
the saddle , although very hard, is paradoxically very comfortable , it was a surprise for me to like it
the forks are absolutely inferior to pace and judy, but they have two strength points, they are much lighter and they feel better in corners. i think because of the parallelogram technology they are stiffer when cornering
it's my first project and i learned a lot during the process, my goal was to somehow mix the good of the retro tech with the good of the modern tech and although i like this bike, i must say that the proshift derailleurs are quite shitty and that the kcnc brakes really suck
(conparing both of them with previously owned xtr groupset). i also read bad reviews about the spinergy carbon wheels braking into pieces at 40km/h
so, i spent and learned a lot with this project and in the future i probably won't try to mix the old with the new, but because of the effort put in this one , i am still like it a lot.
