defiantly like it better with the DA and HED vs the Shamals and Campy, although those black shamals you had would have looked nice

How did you get the LA84s to work with the DA stem? Aren't the stems 26.0mm? Lovely bike though mate.

grunt5 says:

I ride 90% of the time clipless. But the pedals don't fit the groupset! Plus everytime I go to take photos I'm riding round town.

Ha! Hip hop slave as. Waiting for my da stem to be rebuilt so I can get back to the bullies. Sick of risers on long rides. Though they are good for round town!
