Here are a couple of pics of my 15lb’er. It is all carbon with a full Dura Ace Gruppo ‘compact’ crankset… I had to get the cinelli zebra tape.
Hopefully this week, my new Ridley Noah will arrive, all 15lbs! Carbon fiber Aero frame, Dura Ace gruppo with a compact crank, Reynolds 45 mm rim wheels, CF bars, 3T stems, Speedplay pedals, Fizik saddle & Cenelli ‘Zebra’ Cork tape. Can you visualize it? I have no picture but will post it real soon, maybe next week it will be all built up! Ha.
It came with the Dura Ace 7800 crank, I am wondering if I should get a compact crank set. My stock one is 12-27 and 53-39. I am traveling at the edge of my ability but feel I can get the strength needed during the year. I have tried Lookout without too much trouble with a gear or two to spare at times; however, want to go do Mt. Evans. Any suggs, or can someone comment on the difficulty using this set up?
