Hmm... I guess you couldn`t afford the missing bar tape? :D
But the rest looks really good, the cranks are not my cup of tea though...

Nice bike... +1: loose the crank...

Tell us more about the saddle/post combo... I generally hate carbon saddles, but your is quite interesting. Nice shape.

I agree with the comments above; Id get the Red crankset otherwise bike looks great.
And Im also waiting for some info on the seat combo. :thumbup:

Compression cap for the steerer weigh too much? I really like the look of the bike though!

thanks.
whats with the crank? :wink: havent had any problems with the k-force lights in 2 yrs of using them. best bang for the buck 642g (w/ bb) crankset available.

seatpost/ saddle combo is a prototype i saw from one bikeshop in hongkong, talked them in having one. never took off i guess because they couldnt get the weight of the seatpost head down. saddle is 70g but post cut is 140g cut. just a shade under the weight of a speedneedle and a cut kcnc ti pro lite post combo. got it cheap though so decided to use it. shape fits my behind very good.

I'd like to see the suspension mechanism for the seat and post combo. Looks interesting.

Cool, but there's no suspension. That's one hard saddle to ride...

Sweet bike, I cringe at the thought of riding that saddle though...

The saddle is interesting. It reminds me of the early SDG road setups. They were friggin' carbon i-beams, but they were light and some guys liked them.

Very nice weight! I notice you have a saddle with suspension now--comfortable I'd guess.
Those tires are for the weigh-in only, I presume? I used to run those 215g Tufos--boy are they a pain (in every sense.)
I like those rims--details on them, and the weight for the wheel set?

yes gandini, more comfy and around 30g lighter than the previous saddle/ post combo.
intending the tires to be permanent. rode it 2x 80km already and so far no problems, used to jarring because the KOM is a rough ride itself. i found it easy to install/ align on the rim though. vittoria cronos were available at 22mm but looks like it will wear off without reaching 1000km even if i guess they ride better.
wheelset is 997g. details here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=62998&start=30
