More Info:
Nowhere to go from here for me She's just about perfect. Repaint in a few years ? Potential new aesthetic changes: Rose gold anodized chainring bolts, and copper rivet/rail version of the same brooks that is already on there. I've decided I love the crane bell and use it a lot, so I want add some other accents to go with the finish of it. I may also get some rose gold anodized valve caps as well.

Blackspire ring has been lovely. Deadens/absorbs drivetrain noise actually. Dead quiet, the tire noise against the pavement is louder than the bike itself now.
