Finally found some Lake MTB shoes in my size and colour locally.

Initial feelings wearing them (not riding) they feel comfortable, hoping they will be a bit more comfortable for my toes compared to my current shoes.

Got the same shoes, sooooo comfy! Tempted by the new CX201 for the road, supposed to help for my flat feet and wide toes

I know it’s not light but I love the look of these

just how heavy did it come out ?

No idea, will weigh it this weekend.  Not going to be light though, the wheels are burly (though did come in at 1.89kg's, but with the 2.6 tyres and 150ml's of sealant in them, they are not light).  The bike was built more as a budget build, but still ended up spending more than I wanted to, our hobby has become very expensive.  

I must say though, I'm very impressed with the quality of the new Deore components, average Joe like me does not really need XT, the Deore stuff is great.

Please keep us updated on the ride.

I have my eye on one of those frames.

Will however only happen later in the year or early next year.

Ps referring to the Rapide Tigre frame and build.

Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue!  
 

Hopefully some motivation to ride a bit more again!

I am glad you putting the "round tuit" money to good use. Enjoy it.

I've been wanting to play around with Silverback's Scarosso aero bike ever since I first saw it.

It was released a little while ago and one finally arrived. I'll be testing it before I offer it to my customers but so far it looks on the money!

Is this part of the frame or an add-on? (It looks like a different colour/pattern?) I quite like the result either way.

This is probably what Look wanted that horrendous older model 795 to look like at the front end...

It is part of the structure but has been given a matt black painting - I guess to hide where the carbon lay up gets really messy there. It does limit the turning of the bars and there is already a mark on the other side where the stem has contacted the top edge of the raised section.

I really like it but a short torso/long leg guy like me needs the spacers under the stem. A long torso/short legged physique can probably run without the spacers and that would make for a pretty awesome integrated look!

So after chasing the dragon trying to build the perfect bike for me I’ve done a full 360

3 bikes, a long thread. Some lost money and a lot of aggravation mixed with fun I’m back where I started 

There are some colour issues I need to deal with like brake hoses but I had no alternatives for these brakes - black hoses on order as well as new seatpost and bars to dip the weight well below it’s current 11kgs with pedals cages, garmin mounts and sealant
