Hi, This is my first build. I've been reading this site for a little more than a year and I've really been inspired by all of the creative projects I've seen here. Prior to this build I was riding a Cannondale Six Carbon Five with a number of small upgrades. I got that bike down to 7.3kg, so I started this project with a goal of sub-7kg, but I was having fun and the weight kept dropping.

I started the build with a Pro-Lite Cuneo frame purchased on ebay. I discussed the anodizing vs. powdercoating decision in this thread: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=99123&start=15#p842266 In the end, I had a net gain of 2g after bead-blasting and powdercoating.

Looks beautiful!

I'm glad that thread was of some help. Powdercoating looks great!

With the Edge 1.0 fork...When/if I cut the steerer tube further after a few long rides, is it best to have a spacer on top, or can I cut it a few millimeters below the stem?

You should be OK without a spacer. My 1.0 fork is about about 1.5mm below the top of my stem and I'm using a KCNC Team Issue stem.

Nice build...

Have you any feedback on the bottle cage?
It looks nice and light... I'm just wondering if it holds on to the bottles well...
Thanks
