It has been a very long time since I have posted a build here. My last couple of bikes I have picked up do not fit the WW build by a long shot. I am for the most part done with my most recent project, a Scott Addict R3 build.
I started with the 2010 R3 frameset for the color, I have wanted to do a black and white project for a while and this frame was perfect for what I had in mind. I did not initially think I was going to get this below 6.8, but I am there so now I feel like I have to shed a some more weight to actually make it light. I will start with a picture.
Here is the build list with weights.
Now for what you all want... More Pictures
The Pro Stealth Evo Bars Cable routing is top notch.
All black and white... (ok, a few little spots of red too)
I had to modify the seat post clamp a bit. Krylon to the rescue.
Pro Bottle Cages. These are chunks but they match.
The SRAM Force Drive train was too perfect. I had to take the weight penalty here.
Pro Stealth Evo Post with a Specialized Toupe Saddle on top.
Pro Stealth Evo Bar Stem Combo. The computer mount just kills me.
I am thinking now about shedding some weight, but the color scheme is more important than the weight to me. (I know, blasphemy to say that here.) My possible future upgrades are a SRAM Red FD, KCNC C7 brakes, Yokozuna cables, and Specialized Roubaix bar tape (I really don't like the Fizik tape I put on it and it is incredibly heavy). Any other suggestions?
