so Ive decided on the KCNC.. found out the rod for front new ultimate is alu... not ti. deal breaker even though i loved the white.

any ideas where I can get a good deal on these? fairwheel just sells them at full pop.

Hopefully it works, the Damo build is slowly coming along. Picked up some Ksyrium sls and found a stem so 3T bars and then I need a drivetrain and I'm set. I went with all gold KCNC ferruls, f/d clamp and plan to continue the trend anywhere I can without making it too loud.

Quinn thank you for your help!

looking awesome bud!

good to know those wheels would have looked fantastic if I'd gone with them. I look forward to your updates!

Some ti skewers, alu bottle bolts, and a very light seat collar with a ti bolt all got installed this evening in a effort to stave off the winter drudgery. Should be extra fast on the trainer now...

thinking maybe a set of these:

along with a 100 or 110mm stem (X2 again of course) in the summer... maybe some lighter tubes and bolts here and there...

I've been thinking about the same thing Quinn. I like the new blades, they look sweet. I've always (and still do) run Keo 2 Max or Keo Carbon. Let me know how you like them if you do pick up a set.

not a great picture... but I've got about 300km on the new skewers, clamp, and bolts... no issues to report. I'll do a weigh in a few weeks from now when I'm back at work. I'd estimate around a 100g drop from the last time I checked.

That's a good looking bike. I still have yet to get mine completed. I have to get a zero offset post, 25mm is too much setback for this geo.

Did you end up getting some CC's for it Quinn?

Thanks!
CC's? If you mean carbon clinchers... no unfortunately. The 'cost' on Enve rims was far closer to retail than I had expected and the price just proved to be too prohibitive, especially if I'm not really going to push them to the best of their abilities. I'd certainly still like to down the road, but I may wait and see if this road-disc thing really takes off and do it then as I feel the benefits would really come through in that application.
what I did end up building at the end of the summer was a set of Stans Alpha 340's on King r45s with sapim lasers and alloy nipples (all black)... thats whats on the bike in the picture. All things considered Im very happy with what I ended up with, but that wont stop me lusting after something a little deeper and an little more carbony. :P
looking forward to seeing yours all finished up, can you get the Olympic one in 0mm? or will you just go with a standard white one?
