Lovely ride, the red firecrest decals go well with the frame. Would be nice to see a build list for this project.

Cheers.

Rca frame, rotor power cranck, zipp 202s, da9000! :thumbup: That bike is function all the way without loosing anything in aesthetics! Just going through the components Im sure the ride is amazing. Stiff frame and crank, light wheelset and ergonomic and functional group >> Recipe for the ultimate bike! I wouldnt mind adding that one to my stable for SURE!

I knew I'd get "slammed" by the slam the stem police but my 49 year old body can only take so much after hour 4 on a long ride. :-) It's comfortable to me which is all that matters.

The build list is pretty functional and meant for comfort and durability more than weight savings. I had an R5 VWD that was lighter but not as comfortable. It's a 3T cockpit and seatpost though I'm planning on replacing the Ergonova bars for a Tornova. Aerozy got the rest right.

WOW! I absolutely love your bike. Really like the white accents, i.e. white spokes. Out of curiosity, does the RCA only come in Di2 or is it available in mechanical shifting as well?

Super build looks lovely, nice and clean. agree about the spacers, is the frame the right size for you?

Anders, looks like he had them made at wheelbuilders.com since they have their decal on the rim.
