Yeah, when I first started looking at hydro brake sets the cost seemed really high.very nice. wish I had gone with the carbon fork and hydro brakes - but the roadie hydro levers still cost a friggin fortune after the fact!
That's a sweet build! I am looking to build almost exactly the same minus the Di2. Did you request no decals? I would love to hear your thoughts on how it rides/feels. What you are comparing it too.
Before buying I was in the same place you are. the sales rep at Lynskey told me I needed a small frame and I thought there was no way.. Once i compared the dims to the dims of my Domane I realized they were right. I even called them back to discuss hoping to get a different answer but they reassured me that was correct. They also promised that if the bike didn't fit well they would swap it out if needed.I just read this thread from the top again and realized that you have the small frame. I am trying to decide between the small and medium. I'm 5'7" and I feel like I could go with either frame, but the stand over on the medium has me a little nervous. Would you care to share how the small fits you? Thanks!
