Figured since I wasn't putting this one together too quickly I'd do a detailed build thread for it. Not 100% sure what I'm going to use but I'll figure that out as we go. Seems like the best place to start is with the frame. 54cm 670.8 grams including the hanger.

Interesting choice of frameset considering your past aversion to their products. What made you change your mind?

Without going to deep in the details, you are completely correct that I have had serious issues with them in the past. As I'm sure most people know Ax went bankrupt last year and was taken over by a new owner. Axel who was a large part of the problem no longer has anything to do with the company. The new owner has been responsive to the problems from the previous owner and already taken steps to correct them.

Although I feel like I'm getting over the stealth black mode, I would stick with one of the EE options - those white fibulas look too 70s blingy

Possible to list what parts you used to replace the stock headset items?

Yes, please, list, if possible:
1) how was the headset modified (except the EE topcap, which is self explanatory)
2) how were the EE's tuned
