Here is my first build from scratch bought the frame last year and used it during the winter as a training bike with a 105 groupset.

I loved the frame and ride of the bike so much that i decided to build it up as another summer bike :lol:

Parts where sourced over a few weeks and put the build together over the last few days.


Dura Ace 9000 Front Mech
Dura Ace 9000 Rear Mech
Dura Ace 9000 Shifters
Shimano 105 5800 Brake Calipers in silver
Rotor 3DF 170mm (compact Qrings for time being will switch to semi)
Deda RHM01 38cm Bar (was black but stripped it with oven cleaner and then polished)
K-Edge Garmin mount (stripped again with oven cleaner)
Fizik bartape
Silver Alloy Butt plugs
Ritchey Classic Polished Stem 110mm
Hope Stem Spacers
Ritchey Classic Seat post
Thomson Seat Collar
Veloflex Master 25mm Tires
38mm Chinese Carbon Rims
Novatec Hubs (these are nice light and cheap but the bearings are garbage replaced them a few times would not recommend unless you know how to replace yourself)

TBC (scales broke and currently unemployed :( )

Here it is in action during a 10mile TT using some mavic kysyrium wheels as 30mm is the limit for the road category.
Looking at getting semi compact chainrings when i have some cash and maybe stripping the paint for the crankset and polishing it.
