I'm a new member, long time lurker. Love checking out all the amazing road bikes here, makes me want to start a road bike project. . .maybe in the spring.

Anyway, here's my anthem-x. It started as an x1 complete. I sold most of the parts and put bits from my old bike on to get it to this point. I built it to handle everyday fun rides, training rides and xc races, and the technical rocky trails I sometimes ride.

frame - giant anthem x, large
fork - sid team 100mm
headset - cane creek cheapo, carbon spacers and top cap
stem - ritchey wcs 4 axis, 100mm 6*
handlebars - easton monkeylite sl 31.8
grips - esi chunky
brakes - avid juicy 7 (switching to hope tech x2 in january), alloy lever clamp bolts, ti brake adapter bolts in the back
rotors - 160mm ashima saws
shifters - x0 triggers
front der. - xt with alloy clamp bolt
rear der. - x0 mid cage with alloy pulley bolts, carbon inner cage plate, kcnc pulleys
crankset - xt m770
bottom bracket - token "tiramic"
pedals - m540s (looking to change to something lighter)
chain - duraace
cassette - xt 11-32
seatpost clamp - alloy with ti bolt
seatpost - ec90 zero
saddle - fizik antares test, soon to be antares cx rail
wheelset - mavic xc717, dt240s, dt supercomp, dt black alloy nips
skewers - kcnc
tires - michelin xc dry2 2.0, with stan's (waiting for raceking 2.2 to arrive)
extras - garmin edge mount, alloy cage bolts, usually have a PRO carbon cage on the bike

weight - 24lbs,3oz, hoping to lose around a pound with new tires, brakes, and pedals before the spring xc season

What is your thoughts on the ashima saws discs? I've heard the brake well but they pulse at the lever.

they have no noticeable degradation in braking feel/performance aside from getting a bit hotter than ideal after long, fast downhills.

tiff - I can take a close up shot for you soon

How do you like the antares, and how did you get a custom one before the retail versions are even available? kudos.

ugh, the more I hear it the more I see it. Only problem is who makes a 30.9 in white that is as light as the ec90 (170g)?

Its so easy to paint them, but you need some practice, before you do the ec90...."wurth" make top sprays, used on porsche restorations, alternatively argos cycles will do it, dont know what it costs though.

Wait a while, i think white and silver components are going to be the new blacks next year (2010 releases in Sept 2009)....so Orange told me, heard it from Trek aswell.
