Just went around the block on the bmc

I can’t clip in? LOL I don’t know if i fuxored up my cleat installation or if it was something else. However, even pottering around not clipped in going at around 10-15km/h i can tell that

1. The bike is silky smooth. It really is silky smooth and compliant and comfy. Insanely so. I purposely used the fujis wheels and pumped it up to a similar pressure to what i would normally ride on the fuji and it is easily more comfy by a big margin. It could be the result of the thicker bar tape and the carbon bars but i can tell that the force transmission through the rear end is definitely a huge difference.

2. The bike is pretty light.

3. Di2 seems to shift fine with rotor q-rings.

4. I like the fit! The drop is actually bigger than the fuji but i feel at home on it.

Now to solve that clip in issue so i can apply some power.

EDIT :: took apart the cleats and read some guides. Apparently too much torque on the screws can cause it to clip in retardly. I backed off on the torque and i finally clicked in. It’s still hard but it is getting softer already. So of course i had to go down and lay some power down. It felt good but there is only so much i can tell you when i am riding around the block in my boxers with my sidi’s on. I can’t wait to ride it once it is all ready!

  1. It took about 2 weeks for my speedplays to ease up so it was easier to clip in. They will ease up, but they always feel tight.
