Wow good job GK !
Looks great & the weight is super.
Question..... On a light post like the daedalus is it ok to have so much post showing? Looks like a lot now & you say you need more. I wondered if leverage becomes an issue with so much light weight post unsupported?
I would guess not though as they sell it so it must be ok.
Congrats on a great build!

I didn't think you had even started hanging parts yet, I guess you couldn't wait. :D It's looking really good.

I think with the Ventouxs it will look even more like a climber.

Of course for the stem you would want 120, since I already have 100's and 110's in transit.

Your cups should be with you next week. Im adding a little something special to the ceramics. Can't tell you what yet.

Is this the 06' Ghisallo? If so, I don't think you can use a BTP carbon FD clamp. :?

thanks everone for your comments--can't wait to ride this thing when done!

@ flying--the post is where it should be in the picture but I have less than 1 inch in the frame so it wont work--CRACK!!

@Madcow--borrowed a friend cups for now for the picture until mine comes :)

@Herbert--decals maybe later though

@pantani83--good question

@ome rodriguez--2006 yes, anything IS possible ask Madcow (they are being made now custom)

Be sure to give us a ride report when you have spent a few weeks on it.

I will Herbert and with more detailed pics as well as a pic on scale :)

I notice there is a piece of titanium trapped in the seatstay. You can here it travel up and down the stay as you tilt the bike???

stupid question--but any way I can get this extraweight out??

If there is a metal shaving left inside any tube, you can handle it with lots of patience. All tubes are connected with small little holes to let the argon gas through the frame, which in your case means that the seattube has holes where it connects to the seatstays. So one day with your seatpost out and your bike kind of upside down shake it and hopefully it'll come out.
