@Ekorre, nice frame... is that one of the newest ones, for 2014 with the revised fork and stays which give a little more clearance than prior C59's. I have not seen one yet and was just wondering how much more clearance they have gotten out of it. I suspect it's not really a brand new fork but rather the same fork with a little more material removed from the crown area. Curious how a set of 25mm tires fit under it.

Looking forward to the build.

PSM : Its going to die soon, just have to find out just how much to cut.
Also thinking about getting rid of the acros headset in favor of a record.

Great climbing bike, but I prefer 50mm carbon wheels. Meilenstein or Bora Ultra two would be perfect imho. I would also take black head tube spacers and another handle bar with different possition. It looks a bit strange on the picture.

I don't subscribe to the 'slam that stem' movement. If you need spacers for position, then have spacers. Comfort and ride quality are far more important than achieving that 'pro' look at the sake of either of those.

However, your levers are positioned quite low on the bars, and there is very little backwards rotation on the bars. You could achieve much the same position, and make it more pleasing on the eye by bringing the levers up the bars, rotating them backwards and losing the spacers.

Beautiful build though.

@Ekorre: Very nice. When you get some wheels with 25mm tires on the rims, I would love to see some closeups of the clearance between the fork crown and also the rear seat stays, although the current rear seatstay clearance is ample as is.

Only change I'd think about is what you've already suggested... changing the headset out for the "X" version. You have the "Y" version made by Acros. I really don't like that design as much, both from an aesthetic and a functional standpoint. The little wedge and screw just seems like at best it would be a dirt collector and at worse it seems like it would be very easy for it to come loose over time and require constant readjusting. The X version (made by FSA I believe) is much cleaner looking and you also have the option of using the lower top cap or the higher one. You don't have that option with the Acros. Would also get black versus white, but definitely black spacers. Please don't slam it or anything dumb like that unless that truly is where you want it to end up. While 3cm of spacers on top of the headset cover is quite a bit aesthetically, if that's what you need then fine, and 2cm or less is perfectly fine aesthetically as well in my eyes at least. Fit first.
