Took some new pics. 3t post has a bit more setback than I actually need-I'm able to get my position but the saddle is mounted pretty far forward. I will probably switch to a Thomson elite 15mm setback post for a more pleasing aesthetic. Thinking about rewrapping the bars in some microtex dual black/red tape on....thoughts?

Just took final weight (including cages, speed/cadence sensor, minus the extremely heavy r540 pedals which will be replaced soon): 7974g

It ended up a bit on the heavy side for sure but I didn't exactly build it up with weight weenie components-I was going for stiffness and durability more than anything. Overall, I'm pretty stoked with how the bike turned out on a ~$1500 budget.
