The skewers are POP made in Swiss and 37grams for a complete set. The same build as the brand carbon-Ti
POP also makes the skewers for Lightweight.

The Fulcrum Racing Speed XLR wheelset is approx 1325g without skewers.

First thought I had when I saw the bike in the kitchen was that it looked like my dog when it wants to go for a walk.

Im pretty sure that it is the Lizard skin DSP race tape. It is one of the best white bar tapes out there for staying white as you can wipe it down using bike cleaner to remove any grim and it remains unscathed due to its rubbery texture. And it feels great too.

Love the understated colour scheme of this bike, I think nothing looks out of place. Excellent choice you have made here. 8)

Hé guys. Thanks for the kind comments. The bar tape is Lizard skin DSP race. It is very good tape.
I have to do some fine tuning on the bike and there will be another s-works seatpost without a set-back next week. With this seatpost I am 1.5cm (0.6 inch) too far behind my bracket.
And by the way...it is not my kitchen but the kitchen of the Specialized premium bike store :-)

The wheels are awesome and the ceramic bearings run forever.
