Now you just need electric shifters to match your fancy wheels ?

Also, I've installed a bit of the di2 groupset on my new frame. I will need an adapter as the bottom bracket is bb30 and the Shimano crankset is 24mm. But that's a pretty easy fix.

? (frame is di2 only)

Also, yep DT Swiss 240 centerlock hubs. Wheelset weight is 1430g, and is a 38mm front and 42mm rear.

Took it easy while you rode over 30 miles! 

Normal rides are between 50-60ish, with short rides in the higher 30's.

I did 10 miles of Mtb riding this morning before the heat kicked in

Looking sharp.  I'm liking the disc brakes.  Mechanical or hydraulic?

Hydraulic. I've decided to go with smaller rotors though, seeing as how the bike was designed with 140mm discs in mind. 

My bike runs hydraulic too.  However only downside is the stupid hydraulic "pump" mounts right in front of my bars.  Making it hard to put a Garmin on the bike.  Going to have to find a way tho.

Very nice s-works ?

My new bike showed up today...an Orca M20 Team (OMR frameset).  I'm coming from a Domane SL5, so I'm definitely looking forward to having a proper race bike, now!

So, I'm facing my fitness goal head-on tomorrow. I signed up for my first full century and I think I'm ready to go. 

As it's so late in the season, I had to make extra preparations, as it will still be dark when the ride starts, and cold as well. 

Good luck, bring lots of water, gels and leg cramp pills

Alm fork, snapped right in two just over a little jib. In a sling for 8-12 weeks, full AC ligament separation in my shoulder (collar bone). Failure was likely just fatigue related as I've had the bike since 05 and ride it more like a mtn bike than a road bike. Spin bike and step mill, fun times, can't wait to get back at it.

That break is so clean like it is a factory joint that failed. Maybe alum-carbon forks?

Either way, that really sucks. Broken body and bike, like 1 alone isn't bad enough.

I hope that you mend quickly, you seem in good spirits

Forks are all alm, will probably fix it with a carbon fork and keep it for calm days but not sure I'll trust it on some of the chunkier stuff anymore. The components are all in good shape just not really worth transferring to another frame. Best thing to do is try to stay positive and keep as much fitness as I can.

I decided to put my old aluminum Specialized to use again.

I locked in the derailleurs and removed the cables, making it a single speed, and put flats on it. It'll be my winter bike and I'm going to start training for a single speed/fixed century (I'd need a dedicated fixie though).
