Stock ‘low mod’ 105, stripped and built back with UDi2. Other features:

- Wheels Farsports Feder with D230 hubs
- cranks SISL2 with 4iiii power meter
- Bars Roval Rapide (AKA Aerofly III)
- CCCache mount for Kalloy Uno
- 11/32 XG1190 to help me up the steep bits!
- 31mm enve tubeless tyres

All in, 6.837kg.

The Roval bars are significantly more expensive than the Aerofly they replace; only consolation 209g (42cm) and come with the cable transition bits.

Think it might:

- swap the 31mm for 29mm tyres,
- put on lighter pedals
- change to 28,cassette
- Hylix seatpost (on order)
- 50/34 spidering (when they come back in stock)

Suspect that will get me to about 6.7 - happy with that!

Beautiful, clean and well balanaced. You certainly know your bikes.

Beancounter, I am interested to hear the difference between your 2 cockpits. Moreover, your thoughts on the 'Fasterway' integrated handlebar? It's stiffness, comfort and ergonomics now that you have the Roval and Uno stem to compare it to. Would you buy them again? What didn't you like about the bar?

Oh - and you must put the 2 bikes together for some photos and some bike porn :oops:

Can I see more photos of the bars, specifically the cable management under the stem. I am thinking about these for my Supersix build!

If I’m honest I haven’t ridden it much yet, although I did have the Aerofly II on my Roubaix and I really liked them. I find them comfortable on the hoods, and they also encourage me to ride on the tops, which I rarely do on other bars

In contrast the faster way bars are stiff! They look fabulous on the bike, are really light (less than 300g from memory) but definitely not so comfortable.

The bonus of the Roval bars was that they came in at 209g in a 42cm. I think however the massive increase in price from the previous version is a bit cheeky, although they do now supply the cable transition parts in the box.

I was going to set up a separate thread on the bars as there isn’t much info available. I bought 2 sets so will put some pics of them out of the box and on the bike.

Great build! Reading through I noticed you went with bowden tube for the housing on the rim bike. How's that hold up long term?

They’re working really well on the front, but I took them off The rear.

My plan was to run the rear cable through the frame fully internally via the headset spacer for the disc brake hoses. They worked okay but didn’t bite particularly well - It was more than likely a combination of cable routing at the front, as well as the cable angle at the back running into the EEs. I therefore took them off and put normal cabling back on.

At some point, now I have more headset spaces that I can mess around with, I will have another go using the Bowden cables.

Just one question: how did you route rear cable (and its housing) internally ? Is-it possible to route cable housing inside the frame ? No cable housing stops at frame entry ? So "no stop housing" from break lever to brake caliper ?
Thanks for your help !

I used the front cable stop but from inside The frame and then back to the rear cable stop as normal.

That bit worked ok, the main friction point was getting the cable down past the stem and into the top tube.

The brake engaged ok, a bit soft, but the release lacked snap. Had I not given up , I suspect i could have continued to improve it but gave up and got on with other projects.
