    Moots RSL

    I haven't posted in awhile and thought it was time to show off the new ride.

    Dura Ace 7970 Di2 with a DA 9000 Crank, eebrakes, King headset and PF30 BB, and Enve seatpost and stem. Handlebars are Thomson and Dura Ace C35 clinchers and on good days I put on my Zipp 303's.

    nice eh. very. the C35 wheelset is a good touch, good think you didn't go with a deep stealth black carbon wheelset to make the bike "look fast". Personally I would have gone with DA 9000 brake calipers though for their stopping power because I do lots of mountain descents

    I had both the DA 7900 and 9000 brakes. The modulation on the ee's are far superior. 9000 are marginally better than the 7900. Both the 7900 and 9000 with shimano carbon pads are useless. The 9000's are very powerful. That said I was using the 9000 with the 7900 brake levers.

    Congrats on the stellar machine and awesome groupset!

    Quick question; have you had it weighed complete?

    $640 for a set of eebrakes with pads? ugh.. that's more then some car brakes.

    To put things in persective, right now a complete Ultegra 6800 groupset (with brakes) can be had for about $130-$140 more. crazy

    Beautiful bike and very nice build! As an owner of both Dura Ace 9000 and eebrakes, I have to say I prefer the Dura Ace brakes, but that's personal preference. The eebrakes are engineered exceptionally well, are easy to adjust and use, and are very light weight...that's for sure.
