    Would you switch to Shimano only to get the bike earlier?

    No way my dear friend...
    I had Campagnolo groupset and a Sram/Microshift. Never on Shimano. Nothing personal I just don't like the design.


    and just to let you all know:
    WE HAVE A SHIPMENT!!!!
    (and 2 minuts ago arrived the wall bracket thank the Lord I was just coming back from work)

    nice!

    edit:
    the design of the shifter? I chose the 105 because I wanted 2x11 and the sram version was to expensive although I love my sram x5 mtb

    Both the shifter and the crankset althought I never truly accepted the shift from 5 to 4 arms in the cranksets

    the 4 arms are indeed something i was wondering about, too. I destroyed a chainring on a citybike once... but to be fair it happened only once and not with my mtb which had to endure a lot more.

    After spending a night in Freucht (Germany) it seems she's arrived in Italy (I don't know where)

    Let's hope for the best

    So it wasn't easy but we have a BIKE
    What I like:
    the paint is amazing, beautiful color in particular at sunlight. The wheelset is astonishing, good tyres. Althought I have not measured the weight is seems light. I tested for a minute but the idea is that this bike is a tank.

    What I don't like:
    I requested the stem in "sport" position and turn it seems quite dificult.
    The saddle is not so comfy for my butt, for now.

    So I'll probably go to switch it with the set I have on the other bike

    Looks awesome! Congrats :). You'll get used to the saddle, its a question on milage to harden your butt ;). And I cant imagine you'll be dissapointed with the tires, they work very well on my bike.

    Today first kms...

    First impression is a very comfortable bike. The wheelset is beautiful and run smooth. Wide tyres allow a very good bump on our destroyed roads. I have to fix the stem asap.
