As Stunning as the SW Utah Desert Red Rock 

The New Profile-Design 78 Twenty-Four Full Carbon Clinchers.
The integrated aerobar is very adjustable and the basebar is actually reversible - here it's in the "down" position. 

Yes, it already has a little dust on it.....

The Rear Derailleur "Dura-Ace" got blurred out

The new Dura Ace Front Mech is probably the most noticeable improvement of the entire 9000 series

We love the Dash Cycles line of saddles -- This Stage.9 + Arundel Mandible combines for just 127g. 

Pretty Slick if you ask me

  1. Hi Kirk,
    Nice E118.
    I have a similar Bike. Base bar the same set up and about the same hight of stack spacers. Do you have any problems with aero bar extension to bend towards the insight in this situation? What did you do to avoid?
