It's still a work in progress and awaiting some parts but the bike finally seemed worthy of a quick mid-build picture.

Cut the chain, adjust the frond derailleur position, and put an edge seatpost and it's all set!
Very classy build...

Thanks. The Edge seatpost is planned but hasn't shipped; I picked up this one so I can get things adjusted and will swap it out when the real one arrives. The saddle is the SSM Aspide Superleggera Racing Team. I shortened the chain last night and need to adjust the front derailleur, install the brake pads, glue the tires, and cut the cables this weekend. I have a small bag of misc hardware left over from the assembly that I need to weigh, but by the rough estimate the final weight is going to come in at 5.9kg. Pics and all the weight info should come by the end of the weekend hopefully.

That saddle looks like it's a great design but totally useless in the real world.
I've got the same Z4 but with a real saddle and appreciate that build, nice. :D
Put a Regal or a rolls on there. :thumbup:

Actually, I used to ride that saddle on my Waterford, and found it was pretty comfy.
The carbon flexes a good deal, which works well...it was just a bit too wide for me.

Aspide carbon saddles are known to be quite comfy and durable, although a bit heavy in WW standards.
Maybe a classic flite saddle may suit better with this build?
