    Shiny...how much does that beast weigh? :ohmy:
    And isn't the gel seat cover really uncomfortable over long distances?

    Alot but so do I!

    When I setup my new road bike its going to be the exact opposite i.e. as minimal as possible.

    Who says it was too windy? It was just a bit bracing.

    I'm a wuss when it comes to wind and rain but I can tolerate the cold much better than most.

    Surely all that stuff on the bike makes it super stable for windy conditions :whistle:

    You know Vickster you have a point. I bought it when I first bought my bike and changed the saddle when I was doing really short rides round where I live ie all under 10 miles and I completely forgot about it. Need to try without - thanks.

    The bottle cages and bottles are new and I think they really suit my bike.
