    I ordered mine today :heart_eyes:

    edit: What tyres are the others using? How are the g-one's performing in wet conditions on/off road?
    I've got a hard time deciding...

    I read a test of the G-One and they had a very high opinion on wet tarmac. Anyway can't wait to see it!!!

    poppy orange! :D
    I ordered it with the x-one now. Guess i will try the g-one after that.
    If they wear like my nobby nic it should not take to long ^^

    I've done a few thousand km's on my G-ones now, and there's no notible wear to speak of. I ride asphalt, gravel and occasionally singletrack.
    One experience I've made is that if you go low on pressure, the tire is basically silent. Up the pressure and there's a very slight hum on freshly laid asphalt, but thats it.
    They are a right pain to get on though, I wouldnt recommend anyone doing it themselves, unless you're experienced in mounting tires.

    Maybe i should call them and ask very nicely if they could change the tyries to the g-one's ... :innocent:
    they told me my bike should be assembled until the 21.12

    So @Bram is right about Sram problem....

    ROSE XM 319 sw / Shutter Precision PL-8X-15 sw / shimano xt / 32l

    It is the wheelset of the black creek-6.
    I know it is not as sporty as the pro cross ones but it has a dynamo hub and it can carry my weight.

    They are driving me crazy. I want to be complete honest, I have not such a urgence but, when I wrote to the italian branch of Rose, they foresaw 3 weeks. 3 weeks became 6 and counting. If, as explained by @Bram, they have problems with Sram shipment, it would be more correct to advise the customer to choose shimano. (Thing I wouldn’d do anyway but knowing it would be better)

    Funny thing Rose send me a mail in which they notified me the shipment (including tracking number) of a wall bracket I ordered with the bike. On DHL website the shipment information are unavailable. In fact the wall bracket is not been shipped yet

    mine is going to be assembled in approximately one week. I would add your extra days on top mine to estimate a date ^^

    maybe they got a huge backlog because of the sram thing but i get what you are saying.
