I'm still waiting for the rear derailleur, front derailleur clamp and derailleur cables.

Weight of all the parts that I have so far (including chain, front derailleur and bar tape not in the pic) is 6.3kg.

Here's how she looks so far:

Have you used the LICOS bars before?
If you have, what are your impressions? Are they stiff?

Yes, I had the Licos on the Geos that was stolen. I'm not exactly a monster sprinter so don't generally have a problem with flexing front ends, but I found them extremely stiff. I quite like the shape too.

Both look great. How long is your stem? Planning to buy the same if the listed weight is accurate.
