Here's my recent build. I'm very impressed with the Look. I've had a number of carbon frames, costing much more than this, and have to say that this is probably the best riding carbon frame I've ever had. Over the last 3 years, I've had 2 C50's, a Parlee Z1 custom, and a Calfee Dragonfly. Since the picture was taken, I've replaced the campy brakes with some M5's and replaced the Ritchey stem with an Easton EC90.

Here are the details:

Medium 585 Ultra frame
FSA K-Force Light cranks - 172.5
06 Campy record drivetrain
M5 Brakes
Lightweight standard wheelset (16 spoke front)
Speedplay Zero peddles (stainless steel)
Specialized Toupe saddle (143mm)
Easton EC90 zero post
Easton EC90 stem - 120mm
ITM K-Sword handlebar
Zipp skewers

Weight: 14.45 lbs

I know there's some room for improvement on the weight weenie front...

Damn that's nice. I love the white version of that frame, but the black is just plain evil looking.

I debated between the standard white origin frame and this Ultra. In the end I wanted something a bit stiffer so I was left with this as my only option. I was pleasantly surprised when the frame arrived. I really like the look of it. It's got enough color to keep it interesting.
