Looks sharp! I have a soft spot for Campy builds with Record hubs....so I would go with either Farsports or Nemesis. Preference would go towards the Farsports because I think the profile would match the frame aesthetics.

That is exactly my thought... Just silver-ish brake track do not fit to very black & mat frame. Somewhere in net found image of Zephyr with Mavic Ksyrium Exalith wheels- looks terrific in comparison to anything elese aluminium .

I like how NEIL ride- had Nazare, but tad to small and sold it :( . Was searching for frame which will look good with low profile wheels - I'm bit tired of visually "heavy" framesets. I know it's personal, but I like wheels up to 30mm profile.

Hi stormur,

I think you will like the Zephyr. I have owned one for the past year and its been a great bike.

Just to give you an idea of the end weight, here's the build list on mine:

Frame/Fork: Neilpryde Zephyr Size M
Seatpost: Ritchey Superlogic (the original carbon NP seatpost, although matches the finish, is quite heavy. I also found adjustments with it difficult)
Stem: Easton EC90SL 90mm
Handlebar: Easton EC90 SLX 44CM
Saddle: Fizik Aliante w/ carbon braided rails
Crank: Cannondale Hollowgram Si SL w/ Stages Powermeter & Rotor Q-rings
Brakes: EECycleworks
Bottle Cages: Arundel Mandible
Pedals: Look Keo Blade 2 w/ Ti spindle
Drivetrain: Sram Red 10 spd
Wheels: Zipp 303 Firecrest clincher (F), Zipp 404 Firecrest clincher (R)

Came out to right around 7kg

Very excited to see how yours comes out especially with the Campy Record! :thumbup:

At my size 190g seatpost is very light ;) had previously 3T LTD and it survived 1 ride :( . For me reliability is on 1st place, then it comes weight.

Anyway post is so long, so it can be ( it doesn't mean I will do that ) cut by almost 30%, so 150g weight is achievable.

Surprisingly my CX bike ( Wilier Cento UNo Cross Carbon ) in approx same size has frame ( BSA bb ) just 100g heavier, that's mean it's lighter than S-Works... :shock:

I could cut weight on cables, skinny wheels, uncomfy saddle... but no. Just need perfectly working & reliable "allrounder" at reasonable weight . Only 1 "must" is Campagnolo.

Having 65%/35% power ratio between left/ right leg and (still) few kg to much, I'm still weakest point of any of my bikes ;) .
