So far Iíve indexed the gears - very, very easy to do with Di2. Iíve spent quite a bit of time getting the saddle height and tilt close to what feels good and this needs a bit of tweaking.

Iíll be getting the brake lever free play and reach set up soon.

The brakes have phenomenal stopping power. The bike is quite light and feels stable and planted on the road surface. Itís quite easy to pedal and gear changes are very smooth and fast.

I can only compare it to my previous Roubaix SL4 Comp Disc road bike. Itís definitely less twitchy. Comfort-wise, and based on very limited test rides, it feels a little smoother, but this may be down to the wider tyres.

Iíll be doing my first proper rides over the weekend so will have a better idea of the ride quality soon.
