    Nice, the santa cruz gravel bikes do look spot on and good choice of colours unlike so many bikes out there!

    Did some research and took a punt on a set of chinese carbon, they seem okay for now, very stiff, run true, light at 1390 for the pair. One of the guys in the club has had these for about three years now which helped.

    Stem to come down, the nose was down a bit but it wasn't very comfortable, so tilted back to that angle and it was much more comfy, think its more the angle, its fairly flat.

    It feels quite low on the front end but thats probably because I've been riding my canyon last few weeks. Will get it adjusted tomorrow.
