Hi All,

Been browsing the site for a while as I have been building this bike up slowly. Here are some very amateur pictures of the finished product and a list of everything I used. I don't know the weight. I am hoping under 7kg though

Also, I have put some red tape just where the cables are rubbing until my little frame protector goodies show up.

Complete bike specifications
Frame: 2013 S-Works Tarmac SL4 Redline 58cm
Stem: Zipp Service Course SL BB 120mm
Handlebar: Zipp Service Course SL-80 SS BB 44cm
Handlebar Tape: Prologo Double Touch BLACK
Front brake calliper: Dura-Ace 9000
Rear brake calliper: Dura-Ace 9000
Brake / shift levers: Dura-Ace 9000
Front derailleur: Dura-Ace 9000 Braze-On
Rear derailleur: Dura-Ace 9000
Cassette: Dura-Ace 9000 11-25t
Chain: Dura-Ace 9000
Crankset: Dura-Ace 9000 39/53t / 175mm
Bottom bracket: S-Works ?
Pedals: Shimano Ultegra
Wheelset: MAVIC COSMIC CARBONES SLR
Front tire: Continental GatorSkin 23
Rear tire: Continental GatorSkin 23
Saddle: Prologo Nago Evo Pas 141 Tirox Saddle Hard Black
Seatpost: S-Works
Bottle cage: Tacx Tao Light Bottle Cage Black
Computer : Garmin 510 / Cadence Sensor

Future Changes -

I have just purchased a set of ZIPP 101 Wheels that I will train on and keep the Mavics for racing. Just waiting for the new cluster to arrive before I can put them on. Also got some GP4000s Tyres coming for the Mavics and will put the GatorSkins on the Zipps. Also ordered a Stages Dura-Ace 9000 Power Meter. That should be here in 2 weeks. Probably change out the cockpit also in the near future to Zipp SL145 and Zipp Carbon Bars.

Very nice job. I think it's definitely less than 7kgs

Next time I am at the shop, I will get them to weigh it. The bike I was riding before on was a Orbea Orca Gold with Campag and the bike before that was a 1998 Cannondale CAAD3 SAECO Edition ( TEAM ) with 9 Speed Dura-Ace.

Thanks - I am not crash hot on the decals either. I am currently looking for ZIPP 101 BLACK Decals for the new wheels. Not a fan of the white ones.

For what its worth....I switched the stock S-Works seat post for a MCFK and definitely noticed a improved ride quality.

I never really considered swapping out the seat post ? Are they average or just that the MCFK is really good ?

Now has the stages, and 2 x ZIPP Alumina Cages. The TACX cages are shit. Broke 2 of them. Got the Zipp 101's on and have been great. End up keeping the cockpit the same and the bike has been great,
