    I just picked up the same bike, barely used (300 KM).

    Stock other than Fizik Arione saddle and 28c Conti GP4000's.

    I ordered an Ultegra compact crankset for it today and am considering carbon wheels for it too.

    No ride report yet.

    I sold because I didn't like the ride quality. I was coming off a Cannondale Supersix HiMod and in comparison the Solace felt wooden and dead, with very little comparable damping of road imperfections.

    I'm 137lbs and I think if I were a bigger rider it would have been perfect, especially with the sloping tt allowing for plenty of exposed 27.2 seatpost. For me it was just too harsh.

    Well, they're different frames aimed at different applications / riders, different, geometry, etc. The SuperSix is a full race frame, while the Solace is more sportive / endurance oriented.

    Perhaps you should have gone Addict for a closer one-to-one.

    Have you extensively ridden a Solace Disc, an Addict HMX and a Supersix HiMod?

    I was completely aware of the changes in geo and purpose when I picked up the Solace. As you say the Solace is intended for "endurance" use I bought it because it was billed as a comfortable frame with plenty of damping. All of my measurements and contact points were transferred to this build down to the millemeter.

    My point was, the ride quality was worse than the Supersix. I think this is down to less sophisticated layup and lower-end carbon, but that's pure speculation. In any case, the frame, for me, did not live up to its purpose/marketing copy.

    This isn't a phenomenon the current SuperSix Evo is frequently reported to be more comfortable than the Synapse, which is a little long in the tooth now.

    Very sharp! How wide are those rims? I'm curious how much clearance you have if they are 25mm wide (assuming you are still running 28c tires)

    I've since updated mine too with Ultegra 6870 Di2 (which was quite straightforward btw. and there's no going back )

    I also cut the fork steerer tube and added FSA Energy compact bars and neon yellow and black Lizard Skins bar tape.

    700C ASD ROAD DISC BRAKE BIKE RIM Suppliers,Manufacturers,Factories

    from the graphic, 22 internal, 28 external.

    I am running 28c Conti GP4000 and they fit, but i can't go any bigger on the Solace, but i don't need to.

    I have some photos of the clearance.

    I bought them wide because i wanted to be able to use them on my gravel bike as well if needed.

    Really nice wheels - It definitely looks like those are as big as you can go. Nice rim. It will be interesting to see how they hold up since they are supposed to be more uniform spoke tension with Asymetry.

    A shame they discontinued the Solace. I ride an Addict but there's been a 2015 Solace on clearance forever at a LBS I consider every once in a while (the one with the white/orange scheme).

    As requested, here are some pics of my bike in it's current state. Sorry that it's a bit dirty, but it is well maintained and ridden hard and that's the main thing for me

    I used the Scott Solace Di2 Cable Guide kit, which I got off ebay and that made it a bit cleaner. It includes a different cover for the headtube opening, bottom bracket, rear chainstay and a grommet for the front derailleur which makes it very clean.

    Di2 is fantastic. The front shifting is so good I smile every time I do it. It happens so fast I'm still amazed. Just click and it's done. Di2 is awesome because: Shifting is effortless and perfect every time, the front derailleur automatically trims as you shift the back, it never goes out of adjustment (no cables to stretch) and the new sync modes automatically shift 2 gears up or down in the back when I switch the front (no more double shift when shifting the front). It's simply brilliant. I'm on my second charge since November, but will likely charge it again soon. It will go about 1K miles on a charge (apparently).

    You can find the cable guide kit here: https://www.westbrookcycles.co.uk/sc...4-2017-p298014
