@KWalker I would love to see any pictures if you got them! :thumbup:
How would you rate it versus the stock headest?

Don't have it anymore- sold it with the bike. Honestly it worked just fine for my needs. Used the Ultrastar 2 expander with a FiberLyte top cap and they also made me a custom carbon fiber dustcap. I got the Ultrastar for cheap and needed a plug anyways so I went with it. Way better than the Tune piece of crap.

@Imaking20, I'm currently using the 3t bars to match my stem, but sooner or later when I get all crazy about the weight I will change back to save 20grams from the felt bars! I'm really curious on the design on the drop it's unique!

I was very impatient and decided to complete the build without my final pieces, so much more room for improvement! I will update as the newer parts come in.....

Dunno if you're trying to cut weight or anything, but moving to an ENVE seat post will likely gain weight over your masterpiece.

@jdp211 you are correct. The thomson post doesn't look good without the stem, so I guess I will be searching for other options.. Thanks! :thumbup:

If you really want to go ultra WW get a MFCK or whatever it is matte straight post or really any 0 offset Fairwheel sells. Also the Arione K1 would drop you a decent bit of weight

A Tune Komm-Vor or Komm-Vor+ would be nice on that bike. Great saddles both of them

@cerro, yeah I'm hoping to find a budget/used one in-case I don't like it, but definitely looking to get a light saddle! :thumbup:

@locktopus Mavic pedals have caused me NO problems and I have nothing bad to say :wink: love them, but will be changed to something lighter (no speedplay though) My co-worker who is heavier then me at 180lbs (I'm 120lbs) had problems with the plastic surface getting worn out..

I haven't updated the sl4 because running out of funds and waiting for some parts (from a friend)
