Where is this bike? Clearly, they're not operating on your build cadence ;)

I'm liking what I see so far. Tell me, do you know what headtube angle is on that frame, specifically is it greater than 73 degrees? I wouldn't think so since it's a small size, but I'm assuming that's a -17 stem and it looks like it's not quite level, but rather angled down slightly which it shouldn't be if the headtube is 73 degrees or less. Perhaps it's just the camera angle.
Does the front brake cable interfere with the derailleur cable stop on the headtube? Not my favorite placement for cables stops and I've seen cases (I had one) that over time that right cable stop insert, if soft aluminum, can eventually break off. Kind of have to be careful when turning the bars on the stand, making slow left turns, and if you're laying the bike down ever during transport or something. Just something to be aware of.
Kudos on the wheels... they go very nicely with that frame.

I'm going to be using a DZero with my Extralite RC2 outer ring but a SRAM inner ring. It shifts better than the Extralite inner? Cranks are 657.0g so thats pretty damn good.

I specced the geometry of the entire bike, so I remember it off the top of my head. HTA is 73d, so I'm hoping its the photo angle and they didn't build my bike up wonky... The barrel adjusters are brass I think so hopefully they hold up.

I'm thinking of swapping over to Arundel Mandible cages, the King Ti don't give enough contrast on a white frame. Hopefully can get photos up soon of the complete build!

Nice! Hope it rides well. Looking forward to full build pics. IMO King Ti cages look good with the spokes/rims, kinda flows along the middle.

Have a look at the Arundel SS cages as they would be a better fit than the Mandible.

I've always really liked the photography of your bikes - I mean, the bikes themselves are lovely too, but what really makes them stand out are the excellent photography and colour choices. Nice stuff.
