    My Sette Roadie

    I recently got a Sette Primo 105. I love this bike!

    The only thing I didnt like is the gawdy graphics......Especially the PRIMO graphic on the top tube. I blacked out the graphics with a perm marker but I might have to paint over it.

    Other than the graphics the bike rides great. I much prefer the Shimano groupo over the Sram doubletap system.

    I missed the sale price a few months back but pricepoint says theyll credit me if they lower the price within 30 days.

    THanks!

    I will flip the stem once i get more acclimated to the roadie position. Which probably wont be too much longer because Im getting more comfortable in the tuck position all the time.....

    Yeah, I hear you. It`s a weird feeling (at least for me it was) going from a mtb to a road bike, now I love it. And once you're into using the drops a lot then you`ll know you're really used to the road bike!! Enjoy!

    Here's an updated pic......I bought a new seat bc the oem was hurting my @ss. Of course I had to get matching bar tape. I've also since flipped the stem and moved it down a few spacers now that Im more used to the roadie positioning.

    I'm considering a Sette road bike, and would be interested in your long term opinions.

    I love it....Its held up just fine and Sette as you prob know has a 5yr warranty.

    I did have to change the seat because it hurt though. I would also consider getting shallow drop bars but those are personal things.

    Overall I'd recommend one!
