My original intention was to present it when I have the final build, but being a longer project I will present it along the way...
So I started with a Scott Foil Team Issue DI2 only frameset size 56cm, then got some nice Bontrager Aeolus D3 3 wheels.
I plan to change the tubulars with a black only version as I don't quite like the look of the "classical" stripes.

Next are the Ultegra DI2 6870 front and rear derailleurs:

This month I plan to complete the electronic shifting part (shifters, battery, junction boxes, wires...) and get the handlebar.
So that's all for the moment, I'll keep you updated when I have some news :)

Love the bike and those Zipp bars! How far up are you going to tape them?

Thanks, hope to end up with a nice and fast bike :)
Just the minimal tapping, something like is in this article: http://www.bikerumor.com/2015/08/04/lon ... -seatpost/

I have a specialized aerobar and also wanted minimal bartape, so I started the normal way from bottom and finished in the side under the brakehood and then with rest I started on top of the bar, 1 inch from the brakehood and finished in the other side under the brakehood to give it a clean look. I put a piece of electrical tape on the end of each bar tape end under the brakehood to keep it in place.

The handlebar is beautiful in my opinion :), I like the craftsmanship and execution. Steam is not final, I will change it after a proper bike fitting.
Just finished wiring the DI2 setup, very easy passing the wires though the handlebar BTW :)
Also moved my Romin saddle from the current bike, bike starts to take shape :)
Pics to follow..
