Those wheels look great! What weight did the build to and what hubs did you choose? ChrisKing maybe?

Archetype hoops, pink CK hubs, sapim lasers and race (DS). 1510g. Heavier than I would have liked but oh well.

I know I am biased but this frame looks amazing. I like the new setup as well.

Opinions wanted:

I am thinking about swapping the Zipp bar/stem combo in favor of a 3T Ergonova/ArxII Stealth combo. Reasoning being weight, variety, and getting rid of the noise from the internal routing in the bars.

Any thoughts are appreciated!

The 3T Ergosum and Ergonova are my persoanl favorite bars. I just really like the way they fit and feel, especially in the drops. Considering swithing to Ergonova ones for the wider tops. If weight is of concern I believe the LTD is the lightest offering and it should still match nicely with the color scheme you have going on.

I spend a lot of time resting my forearms on the flat part of the bar so the wider area is much appreciated. I understand the LTD to be lightest (~175g IIRC) compared to the 196g claimed for the team (201 on my scale) but that still trumps my Zipps at 240g. Also, I have an Ergonova stealth bar sitting on my workbench :)

I'm not a big fan of the Ergonova's side profile look, but man do they feel great on the bike. Like plpete said, great in the drops.

I kind of like the side view of the shallow drops. I still have my PRO EVO Stealth carbon bar/stem combo. Probably one of the stiffest and sexiest bars I've ever ridden, however, I could never get comfortable in the drops with their ergo bends. Went with the 3T stuff and loving it :thumbup:

I've always lusted for the Ergonovas... I even put a pair on the wife's bike recently but have never ridden them myself.

Time to find a stealth Arx II stem...

I should apologize that my photos are always just phone shots. I don't have a decent background at my house so never feel the urge to dig out the DSLR.
