The BH gets some bits!

Fresh in from Bike24 in Deutschland come the first bits that will adorn my new BH G3. This round of parts consist of a Selle Italia Flite Genuine Gel Ti316 test saddle, a Thomson Elite x2 stem and the 3T Ergonova Team carbon handle bars. The next order will be the wheelset and groupset which will be ordered in a month or two. I am still debating whether to get the 11 speed Campagnolo Chorus groupset or the 10 speed SRAM Force groupset. If you have an feeling towards or experience with either of these groupsets I would love you to let me know your feelings with a comment.
