How did you remove the logos on the RXL stem?

If you're referring to the 100mm stem I had on first, it's actually a 2013 RXL matte black on black decal stem. Probably one of the coolest stems Bontrager made.

I've heard complaints about the stopping power of those bontrager brakes since they use more internal pivots than the standard brakes. Would you agree?

Not at all. My old bike (the CAAD) had Rival brakes, and I'd say my current brakes are a little better than those. At the very least, they are equivalent, and certainly not worse.

against rival, but not sure against ultegra brakes? I was about to get a 5.2 until I heard complaints about the brakes so I was just trying to get some more opinions. Guessing the bontrager saddle was uncomfy so you went with the spec right?

The only way to know is to go into a bike shop and give it a test ride. I never even rode the stock saddle, but my friend who has this same bike complains about it.

Rear brake?

The rear brake is placed near the BB shell. A few other companies are doing that these days.

Never thought about that. Is it hard to reach/maintain without removing the rear wheel?

deliciousc4ke says:

It's not too much different. Changing brake pads on a standard caliper requires removing the rear wheel anyway.
