Its a great choice of bike, I have an 06 S10 with the same peals, neuvation M28aero3 wheelset, michelin pro3 tires and a terryfly saddle. I did 100miles yesterday and the bike was comfy all the way through. Look into those pro3 tires, they make a world of difference compared to the conti's that came on my scott. Oh and dont feel bad about dumping in the driveway, we've all been there.

Good color combo (same as my Felt :)).

The bike's even better if those are beers on your table behind you.

Anyway, enjoy the ride. Looks like you have a winner there.

thanks guys, yeah i wanted an ultra fancy, i just spent $2k on my bike colour...but when i saw the soloist team online, i thought....simple and elegant , i like it..

to be honest i wasnt too big on the bit of yellow, red would be good...but i do really like it, i hear this anodized is more durable too...

i only wanted 105 kit, but this was $1700 full ultegra, so i paid the 2-300 more than i wanted and got it...ideally i wanted to be around $1200....but unless used, was not happening

thanks, both shop guys said the same thing.....the stock rims should suffice, AS LONG AS i keep the tires inflated1!!, thats what my maiden voyage was, to the shop to pick up a pump...lol

although i am researching tires/rims should i need ones...

my stock rims are 16f, and 20b....so well see.. watching the rimset for $500 thread closely
