Looks perfect. It is the look I'm going for.
is that a j&l Seatpost... and of course, what's it weighing in at?

I'm all for a racy position, but that frame looks too small for you if your saddle to bar drop is really like that.

Yet at the same time you have a relatively short stem and the saddle pushed forward on an in-line post.

You may well be the ideal candidate for a custom frame.

Yep. I don't really notice the drop until I see photos of it.

A custom frame would be nice, I almost put a deposit on an Indy fab ssr until I saw a recent one and wasn't really impressed by the welds. They were ok, but the welds on my litespeed were miles better and less than half the price.

+1 -- the outlined decals are fine.

Thats very nice, Enve decals look pretty good as well.
How much does the seat post weigh? May be tempted to hunt one down for my ti as it looks great.

Wilson, just weighed the seatpsot and it came in at around 185 grams. Yeah im pretty sure its j&l, i got it off ebay and cant remember much about it. My last seatpost on it was a deda magic stick which weighed a ton and didnt even clamp the saddle level from side to side. I had to file it down just to correct this. The deda bar is ok, but id probably go with something else in the future, like a zipp or something. The integrated cable routing is a bit of a PITA. The deda stems on the other hand are really nice, i'd definitely buy one of those again.

The total weight for the bike is 6.958kg. Im pretty happy with that, i wasnt expecting it to come under 7kg to be honest. That is including the garmin speed/cadence sensor.

Added a set of extralite hyperclinchers with foss tubes and veloflex corsa 22's. Courtesy of a forum member.

Has bought the weight down to 6.65kg. In addition to this, these are incredibly nice to ride. They feel so quick to spin up. I only weight 60kg so i don't find any flex in them to be honest (even then, it would be buried in the frame!). I think they suit the bike nicely.

Superb bike.
New photo shows a 'healthier' drop.
