So, this year I will go aero. Hence, I have built a Boardman AiR/9.8 with my favorite parts.

Build list:
Frame: Boardman AiR/9.8, size SM. 1122g
Fork: Boardman AiR, tapered. 376g cut
Seatpost: Boardman AiR. 184g cut and tuned with ti bolts
Seat: Parts of Passion. 61g
Stem: ENVE 130mm. 126g
Handlebar: ENVE 42 c/c. 203g
Group: DA 7900 with ti bolts
Pedals: DA7900
Crank: ROTOR 3D+ with Power2Max and Aero Q-rings
Wheels: ENVE Smart 6.7 with Vittoria Evo SC tubs and PoP QR's

Total weight as pictured: 6.740 grams.

I will either paint the seat white or put black bar tape on. Either way, it's going to be Lizard Skinz there.

thats a pretty decent weight for an aero bike with deep section wheels.

Very nice, they only thing I don't like is that the frame is overcrowded with stickers. Other than that it's great!

I like the ride. I actually had a chance to ride the last race last season on the bike, so it has been tested a bit. The geometry is very neutral. Not too twitchy or stable. It's front end stiffness is of course not as high as the Storck Fenomalist I came from, but it feels a lot more stable than the aero Cervelos I have tried and didn't like. It's not as narrow as the Cervelos, which I think is the reason for the better compromise (IMO) of aero and stiffness.

How come you moved from the Storck. Maybe you fancied something different but I would guess the fenomalist is better hands down.

ive heard a couple of people mention painting the seat, do you really mean paint it?
How? Is it durable? or did it just get lost in translation
