So for the last few months I've been saving up to buy this bike and riding this in the mean time:

Anyway. I wanted to size down from the 52cm frames I rode previously for extra #slamthatstem:

So I figured I can either get a 48cm CAAD 10 OOOR why not look at China carbon? I've been anticipating this build for a few months and I was pretty sure I was gonna get a FM066SL or a replica Venge, but in the past few months, these have popped up and I'm more of a climber than flats sorta guy, so I got this instead of a Venge. I already have had SRAM Red and Dura Ace so I figured why not try Campy? Here are the specs:

Headset - " - 58g
Fork - " - 328g cut

Chain - KMC X11SL - 216g cut
Crank - SRAM Red Exogram 172.5mm 130mm BCD Sanded/Stronglight CT2 53/39 - 493g (502g before sanding)

Group total: 1596g

Misc.:

Stem - 3T ARX Team 120mm -17 Stealthed - 134g
Bars - 3T Ergonova Pro 38cm Stealthed - 239g

Bartape - Cinelli Caleido White - 58g
Bottle Cages - China Carbon - 55g

Misc. total: 968g

Wheelset:

Front Wheel - ~2006(?) Reynolds Stratus DV-UL Tubular - 472g
Rear Wheel - " - 684g

Forget the SL4, tell us more about the steel Allez.
Is that an original?

Put my friends wheels on it. I think this actually looks way better. Might be selling the Reynolds...

I just need to get some gumwalls on 'em. It looks so bland otherwise, just a sea of black. Too bad I have four spare tubulars to go until I'd buy any though...

It rides great! I weigh 59kg/130lbs anyway so I run 90/95 PSI, any bike would be comfortable.

Are you running a DA front mech there? Does it work alright with the Campag shifters?

Yup, it's working perfectly. There aren't any trim positions, but I only get rub in 39x11-13 which I have never used.

Some might think this is a dumb question, but I just gotta ask..
I've test ride sl4 tarmac before, and it just rolls beautifully. How different it is compare to the real thing?
I assumed you might have test ridden an sl4 before?
