Very, very nice. Very Happy Very Happy

I hope you are a MTBE Strava Member so we can follow your routes and pace to see how the machine is performing. Wink

You also need a new colour co-ordinated water bottle to make it look even better. Wink

How about one of these:

Little update on my bike. So far ive covered just over 700miles on it and it hasnt let me down ive even signed up for a couple of sportives in the summer. I absolutely love this bike and have completely fallen in love with road biking and unexpectedly ive not even got my Banshee out since I took delivery of the planet x.

Ive made a few changes to the standard set up since I got the bike in January, I switched the seatpost for a deda superzero carbon set back post and also got a deda 90mm stem to help dial in my fit. I got a prologo naga evo cpc saddle in 134mm width for a great price as I found the standard prologo kappa a little wide for me, the bike now feels dialled in fit wise. also I swapped to spd sl from spds. here are a couple of updated pictures.

Road biking can become so addictive can't it, especially when you have got the right bike, which you obviously have. Wink

well done on signing up for the Sportives, good luck, you'll enjoy them.

I offer my usual advice for '1st sportive' riders - get out with a group beforehand and learn to ride close to other riders and not be fazed by things like elbow contact and riding two abreast.

If you've only ever ridden alone, you may be surprised at how reckless and stupid some sportive 'warriors' can be.

Bike looks kinda gore-jiss, BTW. Consider carrying your spares in one of these rather than the girle small saddle bag - nice match to the bidon:-

Thanks for the advice Smile im riding the sportives with my bro in law who has done quite a few before so im hoping that will help:) that storage bottle looks a great solution for whenever I only need one water bottle,I might have to invest in one as it would be perfect 80% of the time Smile
