I bounced around with the color of the hoods, at one point I was going to go with green. I'm doing white tape and white hoods so that it all matches. I didn't want to do black tape, and black hoods with white tape doesn't look great to me.

Quick update. Got the cranks, they should be here in a couple of days. I will be ordering the derailleurs next week and then the build will be completed.

Cranks finally arrived. They're so well made, and light! Check out the weight with the rings installed.

I assume the crank is BB30? That is a great weight! My GXP version came in at 425g for a bare crank.

Quick update. I ordered the last pieces to the build. Hoping to have the derailleurs by this weekend so I can complete the build.

Hahah, it's actually been a year since I started. Almost there. Had a 6 month delay that was out if my control. Thanks for sticking with it.
