I finally chose a frame for my next built.
After some advice from WW members, I decided to sell my CF frame and Ultegra parts, and go for ALUMINIUM!
I checked the CAAD9's for a looong time,.....buuuuuut.....
I ended up buying this (used) nice frame. Sorry for the pics with mismatched training wheels...
Cyfac Elan (Cyfac named the Proxidium frame Elan for the US, it will soon revert to original name), size M. Weight : close to 1400 g with seatpost collar, derailleur hanger, Tange headset and bottle holder bolts.
Fork is Cyfac T800: 360 g cut to 20 ish cm, with FSA expander and cap.
Since I didn't put too much $$ on the frame, the extra savings will go on parts:
Shifters: SRAM Red
Front derailleur: SRAM Rival Braze on, with Parlee clamp
Rear derailleur:SRAM Rival, or Force
Cassette: Shimano Dura-Ace 7900
Chain: Shimano Dura-Ace 7900
Crankset (and BB): FSA K-Force Light Ceramic MegaExo 52/38 (lighter and most color coordinated) OR SRAM Red (Maybe Stronglight CT2 rings)with blackbox, OR Shimano Dura Ace 7900 (I think would be best, but worry about the looks)
Calipers: TRP 960, or SRAM Red, or Negative G
Yokozuna Reaction cables and housing kit
Stem: 3T ARX Team 120
Handlebar: FSA Energy traditional bend 42 cm
Seat post: 3T Doric team
Seat: San Marco Aspide Carbon FX White (Can't wait to see the San Marco Regale Carbon FX 2010 though)
Seat collar: Hope, or KCNC, or Token (any good?)
Bottle cages: Bontrager race X lite or similar
Rims: Kinlin XR 270 28h. (with Velo plugs)
Hubs: Front DT 240 or Alchemy ELF, Rear DT 240
Skewers: KCNC Ti
Tires : Veloflex pavé Kevlar (though Vittoria Open Corsa 320 tpi would be nice too)
Tubes: Michelin aircomp Ultralight
Pedals: Look Keo Carbon
Should come around 7 kg (ish)
