I edited with updated pics and specs...

I was finally able to acquire my dream bike, a Meivici! This should compliment my 03 Odile nicely. Projected weight is around 14 lbs. Not all the parts have come in yet, so I'll post as they come and when it's all done. It will be built with the following:

Campagnolo Super Record 11 (2010)
KMC X11SL Gold chain
Chris King headset
PRO Stealth EVO handlebar and stem
Crank Brothers Eggbeater 4Ti (my mountain bike roots)
Woodman Carbo EL seatpost
Extralite seatpost clamp
San Marco Aspide Composite saddle
Reynolds MV32 UL tubulars
Can't decide on tires, either Veloflex or Conti GP 4000 SR
Vincero bottle holder
Power Cordz cable

UPDATED:

Once I dial in the saddle position, I'll probably make a call to Jure to make me a Berk combo!

I really like it! Its carbon weave looks so classy.
Tires should definitely be Veloflex.

My old Meivici remains the best bike I've ever owned (although I've not ridden my Baum yet). I'll be impressed if you can get down to 14lbs though, mine was over 15.5lbs with Sram Red, USE finishing kit and 46UL's:

I ogled over your meivici many times before pulling the trigger on mine. Yeah, it will be close. I'm optimistic :roll: . I'm at around 4394 grams without wheels/tires, pedals, and bar tape. I have a set of Reynolds MV32 UL coming with Conti GP4000 SR tires. Just got some Eggbeater 4ti pedals.

PRO Stealth EVO, 42/120. Weight came in lower than expected, 396g, only 40g more than my 3T/Easton setup. 8g just in those 2 computer mount bolts. Those will be replaced with rubber plugs.

Awaiting a pair of Veloflex Carbons, bottle cages, bar tape, and an Aspide composite saddle. Almost complete! 13.2 lbs as it sits.

Oh yes, that's something beautiful (and beautiful riding) right there. You've completely stunned me on the weight; never remembered mine as particularly WW (and the way it rides it doesn't need to be) but that's deeply impressive. Is it a 55? Tempted to lose the rim logos?

Beautiful. Such a shame about Serotta's problems right now. Can't help thinking that they won't be around much longer. As Churchill once said, 'This isn't the beginning of the end, it isn't even the end of the beginning, but it is perhaps the end of the beginning.'

Nevertheless, the Meivici is a stunner. Since the bar rotation isn't adjustable, just make sure you bring the levers further up before you cable and tape them.

Yeah, once I have the tires mounted, I'll put it in on a trainer to make sure everything is fit and proper. Thanks!
