    I'm a "long back, short leg 5' 10 3/4" riding a size Large.
    A couple of things to note. I'm running the front brake hose differently than most as I didn't like it crossing through the fork. My chain has Blue side plates(Wipperman teflon) and I've already worn the "XTR" off of the Left crank. Is it my fault I had to ride in the mud with booties on?
    I also changed the cable housing for the rear deraileur to one piece from the rear der. to the back of the top tube as I was having some ghost shifting issues. I haven't had a ride yet to see if it's fixed but it looks like the way to go.

    I take it you have not had anymore shifting issues? Is that a long or med cage derailer?
    Also how did you route the housing for the rear derailer?
    Thanks

    I had shifting bliss for awhile but then things started to go awry but I'm working on it.
    There's a nifty trick posted here somewhere about using zip ties and plastic hose to make cable guides so I used that idea to tie the cable housing to the original holders plus one in the middle....same idea I used on the front brake hose except it slides in the guide.
    The rear der. is long cage.
    Sent the whole spring, summer and fall working less and riding more and having way too much fun(for my age).

    Great bike dude, love the blue ad ons. Maybe when your links start to worn out, get the blue version that Ibis going to offer and change your QR seat collar into blue.

    Dont forget to post a pic of your bike into the Post your Mojo pics here thread

    I ordered all the Blue bits and a chianstay protector last week....should have been here already, maybe Monday.
    I also just installed a Cane Creek Solos headset in Blue. Nice.

    Darren - you will lose ability to easily adjust seat height won't you?

    I set the height and go. I only ever loosen it to remove it for transport....not an issue for me.
    I've got bolt on skewers too so there's usually a 5mm Allen wrench handy.

    Daren,
    What kind of bolt on skewers do you have and why do you use them? I almost never take my wheels off my bike and wonder if the bolt on skewers would help lighten it up.

    I bought then from Torontocycles on Ebay. 66 grams for the pair, I think. I did it mostly for security but being Blue didn't hurt either.

    Nice bike

    Do anyoe have tips on finding a blue color that gives a eloxed-look ? Like on the spokes there.

    My bike is now a SL in the matte Carbon but most of the components are the same.
    Looks like this.
