    Time will literally start going backwards over the next week or so

    Sounds like a superb build.

    May have missed an earlier post, but what frame did you get?

    Sounds cracking value...

    I know. On top of that when I've enquired about the status of the order I was told that unfortunately they have run out of the Mavic wheelset that I ordered. They are going to receive it in 10 working days!

    Good things come to those who wait

    You are aware that the frame finish is 'raw' carbon? It looks a little patchy in places and is the only aspect of the bike that I'm not too keen on. I don't get why they didn't give it a nice even finish? It's only an aesthetic point as the bike itself is excellent.

    Be interesting to hear how the disc brake version...with carbon wheels rides when you get it.

    No, I wasn't aware of that but I think I can live with that. I'll share my experience, however, I don't think I'll have anything but praise to say. I have been riding an entry level road bike for the last 3-4 years and that would be my only point of reference. The only downside would be that, I predict, I'll have to get used to is a more aggressive geometry.
