[quote="DaReef"]Nice build! Re the front derailleur clearance, when I upgraded my Etap Tarmac to a Quarq, they had to install spacers. Hope this helps. Looking forward to the finished build!

Pls ignore the dirt, consider it proof I ride the hell out of my bike!

Awesome I might have to do that! Thanks for your help!

looks great... but you lose style points for not lining up the logos on the tires with the valve stems.

Unfortunately I did the same the other day, lined the tyre logo with the Lightweight logo, then realised, but what is the relevance of doing it that way against the valve.

Nice bike btw, any idea of weight. !!

Well, the reasoning for lining up the valve with the tire logo is that when you get a puncture on the road, you pup off one side of the tire and blow some air into the punctured tube to find the hole. Once you find the hole in the tube, you can see where it relates to the valve and then check the tire in the corresponding location to make sure that whatever punctured your tube isn't still stuck in the tire, ready to puncture the next tube you put in. It just makes things so much easier.

In your case though, I wouldn't argue with lining up the logo on the tire with the logo on the wheels.... which the OP failed to do as well.

OP, I don't mean to bust your balls at al.... its a dope bike with some killer parts and its gonna look bad ass when it all comes together, but its the little details that truly set an awesome bike apart from the rest.

Lol, I've had the wheels for two years now on another bike, but next bike I will do that haha. They came from Enve that way!

The tires are old, and will not be going on the new bike, just put them on there to get it all setup.

Looks great! Something about stealth bikes and skin wall tires that does it for me. Agree maybe some Praxis black rings. Beautiful bike!
