Brakes/levers/gears: Shimano Ultegra Di2
Crankset: SRM DA7800
Handlebar/stem: stock Ritchey
Cassette: 105 11-28
Chain: KMC X10SL
Bartape: stock Canyon
Bottle cages: Arundel Mandible

Ready to race in the UCI 1.2 Hadeland GP race Saturday. Some of the roads are full of potholes so I thought I'd bring out some wide tires :-)
For Sunday's Ringerike Grand Prix I will use more normal wheeels/tires!

Looks awesome with the current wheel/tire combo, and certainly won't slow you down!

Thanks for the compliments :-)

Roel: It's a personal timing chip. Issued by the cycling federation here and used in most races. However coming off for the weekend, mounting the race organizer's transponder.

It's a size 58/L. Weight unknown, I'll check asap.

Same size as mine.

I'm considering a 2nd Ultimate AL. Unfortunately the 2013 paint schemes are not that fantastic. This stealth look in combination with the clean and neat components makes it really attractive.

Weighed it and the weight says 8,2 kgs. Which is quite porky.

But the wheels and tires are fairly heavy, as is the Ultegra Di2 and the SRM crankset. I will try to make some modifications to lighten it though.

Planned: replacing Ultegra brakes with DA7900 brakes from my old bike.
Wishlist: replacing Ritchey Evocurve aluminium bars with 3T Rotundo LTD

With Mavic CCU the weight should be significantly lower.
