Thanks. Here is the not fully completed front wheel on the bike, just for the looks of it.

Wheels are finally laced up and mounted. I bought a Park Tool TM-1 tensiometer which is extremely helpfull in obtaining an even spoke tension. I will recommend this even to just check your wheels once in a while and it's great value. The wheelset came in at 1430g with Schwalbe high pressure rim strips. I'm waiting for some Reynolds Fourty Six decals which I think will look great.
Total bike weight is now 6.64 kg. Still wondering if a SRAM Exogram crankset would be nicer, maybe with the MKV chainrings. I'll take some better day light pictures in the weekend.

I have been looking for a matte seatpost to replace my 99g New Ultimate. As an experiment I wet sanded it with corn 1000. It looks completely like matte clear coat and I would recommend this method if you want to keep your decals.

Got the decals applied. I think it really completes the bike.

How comfy is that saddle? Always loved the looks but don't know if my butt could do it cuz I need a 143mm and if I'm not mistaken it only comes in 131.

Do you know who made those hubs for Specialized?
What size bearings do they use front and rear?
What was the weight of the front hub?
