Middle of the year and time to update the Top 10 Kit List. Rapha continues to dominate with seven of the ten positions; no surprise there. The Gilet, the rouleur of Rapha's product lineup, is on the front of this breakaway doing the leadout for big guns like the Light Weight Jersey and Classic Softshell Jacket that are likely to come round at the line come December.
The Enigma has joined the bike page, complete with all the final components of the build. It has been a great six week honeymoon with the titanium and carbon Eulogy. I've made two small changes along the way – raising the seat about 1cm and flipping the Rotor S1 stem to angle down 7.5 deg. I was feeling like I could handle a slightly more aggressive, stretched out position and still have another experiment to make with a longer Oval Concepts R900 stem.
A new set of Ligero-built custom carbon wheels is due any day. More on the specs of these beauties soon. Upcoming features on a Madone build and bay area classic climb are in the works.
