Sweet bike! I'm a DA guy myself.

Couple observations...esp since your username IS OCD.

-if you're gonna post a pic of an awesome bike on ST, get the driveside crank arm at 3:00!
-get the crank in the BIG RING for the pic!
-non-aero cage on a superbike???
-How big are your hands??? That bar tape on your aerobars looks about 12" long!
-Usually people mount their tires w/ the labels opposite the valves so you can find where to remove the tire more quickly if you get a flat during a race

Otherwise...awesome bike:) :) :)

Typically I am 10min late, so that was my personal touch. And...those are the longest valve extenders they make- duh...

That has to be one of the coolest looking bikes (brand be damned) I've seen.

Thank You for saying so. Actually pretty stock with the exception of a few attentions to detail. FELT made a great Di2 host for me to work with. I am super excited to build my relationship with this whip.

Gorgeous! You did a wonderful job on the build. Any chance of posting your set-up dimensions with us? Frame size, AP stack and reach, AP drop?

I've been looking at the Felt DA1 for a while and these pics might just put me over the edge.

Thanks for sharing!

that's a lot of IsoTransition action going on. I love the shoe to race in too, but damn.

You can't go wrong with the B16 for the price. Spend your money on wheels, helmet, and the engine! (Oh, and get rid of that bottle cage on the seat tube, go behind the saddle).

It's just a plain ol' disk cover from wheelbuilder: http://www.wheelbuilder.com/aerodisc.html

I drew up the graphics on photoshop and printed it out on big sheets of adhesive vinyl. The only tricky part is applying the graphics on a slightly conical shape without getting any air bubbles.



I also did the "Vitruvian Man" graphic a couple years back and it turned out well.

That's a great idea. Thanks for info, I might try to do the same. Now I just have to decide what graphics to use!

Still working on fit. Current dilemma.

stick with the white xlab cages? or get black xlab cages?

or

arundel mandible black cages? or mandible white cages?

Aesthetics. Definitely more important than anything else.

Is that a matte finish on that bike? If so the new CHIMP cages in matte would look awesome. They come in the natural carbon color. You could also consider the dual-tone white cages that we came out with about a month ago. Those would look pretty sick!

Black/Carbon cages.
Rims look nice and clean w/o decals.
Cut the extensions down another 2 inches and then the cable housing about 6 inches shorter, add an inline adjuster for the rear brake to ease wheel-swaps.
Loop the front brake housing behind the stem, not in front of the fork and below the stem.

Tell me about your choice to ditch the Metron shifters.
