More Info:
this thing is silver af. i like polishing shit. the stem, bars, and brakes were polished. the aero cover from alugear only fits r8000, i had to alter it to fit these 7000s. they make the craziest chainring i have ever seen, i highly rec. weight is around 18 lbs. a hefty boy, but i dont have many carbon components, and the wheels are pretty deep. this is my dream version of retro-modern…a bunch of practical chinese parts on a vintage frame.

min has crazy thin walls and is machined perfectly. nevrtheless it makes more nois ethan an e-bike in the biggest cog when climbing. The second biggest is better, the 3rd is ok and the forth is quiet. Hope this gets better with the time but the waxed chain is louder for sure

no problems, bolts are solid and torque the same way as any other bolt. the 1x teeth are smooth.
