Didn't set out to build the lightest possible - just for once in my bike life I wanted to do a build where I bought exactly the spec I wanted - no upgrades required - or lusted after!

Felt F1 2013:

Groupset: Shimano Dura Ace 9000

Bars: 3T Ergosum Pro 44cm

Stem: 3T ARX Stealth 100mm 6 degree

good-looking "no-nonsense" bike, consistent settings. you could save some weight by using carbon bar of 3t, but this is not important.

That looks awesome. At that total weight you don't need carbon :-)

Like the geometry and the 1k CF of the Felt.
Looking forward to the slammed stem look.
Well done.

Krull - your spot on: a good solid "no-nonsense" build is what I wanted - have spent too many years with MTB and Road mucking about with oddball set ups - a good solid, consistent bike lets me get on with the job of trying to pedal her faster :)
