So, I had a BMC RM01 that I've attached in the OP. Loved this bike to pieces but had to move to the other part of the world and this one had to stay, so I sold it and now I'm building my dream bike :D

I had a custom groupset with me for quite some time for a Titanium bike that didn't come true so I'll be using this with the new frame parts are:
- Dura-ace crankset 52/36
- Dura-ace brakeset
- Dura-ace FD
- Ultegra Shifters
- Ultegra RD

For the wheelset I bought a Mavic Cosmic Pro SL, never tried carbon wheels on the road and the reviews on braking with this wheelset were so good it convinced me to finally try full carbon rims.

I'll be using my old Spz Toupe saddle that I love, it's the same as in the pic bellow.

I'll update this as parts arrive and I get to building the bike, in the mean time here's my old bike :)

Very nice bike. Can you tell about the ride, and perhaps a bit about the reach (of the h11 cockpit). Thanxs.

Great bike, will have one one day.

It's a midcage, I thought it was nice to have an option to fit a 32T if I wen't alpine climbing but later on I saw that you could fit 32 to short cage mechs :-/

Thanks, and tbh I never really liked all black bikes but the Canyon promotion only had the black frameset available so that's that. When my bartape wears out (and lizardskins wear out very fast) I'm thinking about fitting a Cinelli Caleido to give a subtle splash of colour, nothing too big.
