Apologies for the shadows in the photo. It's was taken quickly. I'm about to strip it and sell it to build up a Mosaic TT-1.

This was my first dream bike. It was also the first bike I purchased new. It's been through several iterations. At one point it had a Lynskey inline seatpost, a SRAM Force groupset, an Arione VS saddle, 3T bars and stem, and Mavic Kysrium Elite wheels. Then it had a Fizik setback post, an Arione 00 saddle, R1 stem, R3 bars, and Velocity A23 wheels.

It wasn't until the final iteration you see here that it weighed sub-6.9kg. My favorite part of this build is the combination of the lines of the frame with the angular seatpost and bottle cages and the industrial brakes.

6.57kg includes Garmin, out front mount, cages, pedals, powermeter, etc.
