Chorus 11 speed on the way. Still waiting on a reply from Soul bikes to purchase their S2.0. I don't have money for anything else right now so I'm pretty set on this wheel and from the sound of it these are superb for their price. I'd go with their S3.0's but since I ran low on money I am going to use my Keo Sprints and San Marco Aspide Ti from my other bike for now and that puts me at a projected just under 6.8kg...I can't go above that, especially with the Weight Weenie Kit Order about to happen.

This bike will be complete in a couple of weeks (however long it takes to ship my group from the UK). I'll buy a lighter saddle and pedals early next year to put myself safely under the 6.8 mark.

I did a ride this week with my S2.0's and have to say i was impressed!

I know it's only one ride - but first impressions were very positive.

Felt as solid as other wheels I've ridden that are 500 grams heavier. And spin very well.

For the price they are very hard to beat i feel. And Sean is an excellent chap to deal with as well :thumbup:

A couple new things:
Alpha-Q bottle cages and Vittoria Corsa EVO 320tpi tires, we'll see how these stand up.
I also have some Ciamillo Zero G black brakes coming in, hopefully on Monday. I haven't gotten ship confirmation on my Chorus 11s Group set yet :evil: The Soul S2.0SL wheelset will also take a while but until then I will be borrowing a wheel set.

Look KeO Carbon Ti Pedals should be coming in next in a couple of days :mrgreen:

Just wish my Chorus 11s group would get some loving....of course these brakes mean that I won't be needing the Chorus brakes so they will be in the for sale section once i get them.

it would be blasphemous for me not to put it together by the end of tonight! But of course good pictures will have to wait until tomorrow.

Here are some pictures. Only thing that remains is for me to receive my Soul S2.0SL wheels. There are still a couple of adjustments to do regarding fit, and the saddle angle is much more pronounced in these pictures than in real life.

Wheels not included below. Current weight with the Easton wheels I'm borrowing from juanmoretime is roughly 15.4 lbs. I will measure again after a much needed nap!

Correction; all that's needed is you to jump on this mean machine and ride!

Looks excellent! And fantastic weight with what is certainly not the most WW grouppo out there :beerchug: top work!
