(Did you find it?)
He's riding a FEL bike.
Now my question: would you want a replacement? He has his own opinion, I'm just curious how other bike fanatics would react!
I would be lying if I said I did not run out and check mine to make sure it was not missing the T. That being said unless they knocked the price down to cost then I would ask for a replacement (a vinyl/sign shop could make a T). Even though you know the bike is legit it could hinder his ability to sell it in the future. I know I would think twice. my 2 cents
I'll be off from today until 4th January and my girlfriend has flown home for Christmas so assuming everything's as it should be with the bike, I'll have plenty time to play with my new toy. I'll book a bike fitting for January. I should be able to set it up pretty well myself but I'll get a second opinion. I might even try fabricating a bespoke rear storage container, but past experience tells me I'm more likely to procrastinate about that for a couple of months before doing it ;)
I'm not expecting the Hadron wheelset I'll be putting on it until a few weeks later as they were on backorder so perhaps no photos for a while yet. We've all seen the stock setup already.
After a few rides I can already feel the cable housing is starting to wear on the outside. Whats the best way to fix this?
You can run a Magura hydro rear caliper brake on Shimano Direct Mount rear brake mounting standard with an adapter. I recommend the 10 degree tilt version.
Can someone explain this? Provide a pic or link to the adapter. Is the 10 degree tilt the adapter or type of brake?
Where can you buy this?
Check this out. A new larger GU Pack for long course racing
Maybe this will fit into the IA box?

One thing that bothers me a little is there is no quick release for the 105 direct mount rear brake. It has a barrel adjuster by the stem, but that won't be as convenient for quick wheel changes as an actual quick release.
Has anyone tried installing an inline quick release like a Shimano SM-CB-90? Or are there other options?
I'm still deciding what kind of hydration setup I want to use. For now I've been training with 2 bottles on the frame.
It might depend on the size of the frame, the type of cages and the size of the bottles.
On my size 54 I can fit 2 bottles using the 2 bolts closest to the head tube on the downtube for the second cage. I cant use a bottle thats too tall in the downtube cage. My 22oz purist bottles fit, but there is not much extra room. My 26oz bottles won't work with a normal bottle cage. The 26oz bottles might fit with a side loading cage, but i'm not sure.
