whoever was coming up with the 2017 s works demo color schemes must've been colorblind because they are so ugly. Bright green accents with a black to red fade... even though the sparkle in the red paint is really well done it just doesn't vibe together

Eek Woah... that carbon tues

Also yeh the demo's has had some fugly color schemes
I liked that grey 2019 alloy they made, anyone own that model ?

Also the hot pink was amazing !! Eek but no where to be found anymore.

Think we can all admit the 2017 red carbon (s-works) is x Fab Probably the nicest lookin bike ever made.

I just stuck 3 adhesive wire clips from the hardware store on my frame. Something like this, although mine use a zip tie to hold the wire on and I picked them up from lordco:

Cry Broke rear wheel hub today. Thought it was a loose casette lockring but the whole thing wobbles. Eek

Now that i think of it i've noticed some slip/skipping since i heard a loud noise a few rides ago (Thought it was just the derailleur smacking against the frame)

For now it's still rideable putting the wheel back in seem's to squeeze everything together.. don't really know what to do about it tho.

Very confused new rear wheel ? new bike.. ? lol

Edit - Can't remember but did ya'll say you can use a 142x12mm wheel instead ? 135x12mm doesn't seem to exist anymore. 7mm difference.

135x12mm is the only option. Hope, DT Swiss and Mavic e. g. have 135x12mm. I would love to have 150x12mm but no way.

I have heard that the hubs are shit and fail, so got my self a Hope hub to replace it with when the original dies or the rim needs replacing, 3 years later the hub is still alive, though bearings feel like crap,rim still true and the Hope is still in it's box!
