So next year is a BIG birthday for me and I'm seriously thinking about a new bike, well at least frameset and groupset. I do have a decent budget as it's been in the pipeline for some time.
I would use it for sportive rides and days like the MSR one posted here recently. I might use it for senior road races but not for circuits/crits - too risky.
Di2 - anyone using it? recommended despite cost and complications of weight, wiring and battery? Maybe the Dura Ace 9000 which has great reviews would be a better bet. I'm pretty much stuck on Shimano.
Frame size/shape - my height is in my trunk so a short top tube geometry doesn't work. I currently use a Kuota Kom M with a 540mm top tube and a 120mm stem and I wouldn't want to go any shorter.
Been thinking about the following (for no apparent reason other than I like the look):-
Pina' Dogma 2
Ridley Noah Fast (integrated brakes)
Cervelo R5 (or 5ca mk1 if budget stretches)
Any thoughts experiences greatly appreciated.
