53/39 - 11/21! I'm scared! I'm really really scared!

But I like the classic bend of these handlebars. How do you like them? Are they stiff or comfortable?

Thanks, I appreciate that. I am very happy with this bike and have zero buyers remorse. I especially like the fact that if I crash the frame, I can replace it for 900 bucks, including the fork.

I really like SRAM. Shifting is very crisp and I dig the 1/1 ratio. My old bike has Ultegra and IMO, I feel SRAM out-perfroms.

I hear to adjust the derailleurs are way easier and less maintenance as well. I test rode SRAM and dig the double tap

Thanks! At first I wasn't so sure about the color, but once I took it outside in the sunlight the colors really popped.

That's awesome. I regret not picking up one of these in silver and black. I just built a silly single speed that cost me more... fail lol.
