Second that... Noice!
Looks racey. Stem is long, and slammed.

The Romin looks great in white too, much better than I imagined it'd look for some strange reason.

how does it ride?

Compared to previous set up - better?

Any particular reason for SRAM Red?

Setup is pretty much the same as before.
Only changes are red22 instead of red my12 , romin saddle in place of toupe and bontragers instead of 404s.
It has meant a weight increase of about 250g. But it looks better.

I choose sram due to weight and brand loyalty.ive not had issues with it and prefer the mechanical clunk to the finesse of DA.
