thanks boys!

permon, ive had fsa's on my previous builds if you bothered checking the links. prefer non-series cranks and calipers for easier matching and better bb cup options.

michel2- good catch! was focusing on the dots when i installed. it had a pin on this side too.

bernatv- used a cap from an unbranded headset. lots in ebay and china websites.

I just keep coming back to this thread. I just simpley love this bike. The attention to details is just soo pleasing to me, i can find it all over the bike. This is what i also maintain on my own bike. I just sleep better when i know that everything is perfect, even the smallest screw. Keep up the great work, and have fun riding this beauty!

I hope Cevélo steals your paint-sheme for their 2015 R5 frame.
It looks much better then theirs!!!

I would get rid of the skewers. The parts of passion skewers do not hold a wheel and the wheel will hit your chain stay and take off your paint!

You sir have fantastic taste.
I guess there's worse hobbies than making a bike light? Right?

michel, remembered today. so tried to rotate but 180 degrees opposite is only ocp2/ocp4, using ocp3 so it has to be on the 'other' side.
