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.

Are you ever going to try out clipless?

Posted about 10 years ago

grunt5

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.

I prefer the Shamal set-up.. BUT this is still one of the best looking bike I've ever seen! woww

Posted over 10 years ago

grunt5

grunt5 says:

I still love the shamal set up.. However having clinchers and more spokes means this bike gets ridden alot more. It's my daily ATM. So I'm happy with it! Thanks man.
