Are you 1x10 now, or have regular shifting for the front?

It's 2x10. Up front is still Record 10s QS.

1 x 10 would be a little bit offensive with a 27-11 cassette. With the K-edge Di2 RD and a 36-11 cassette, I would mind a single ring up front :)

It is an 11-32 cassette with 42-27 rings up front. Have not missed a shift yet with Di2 nor charged the battery in olmost 3 months. Recently got a new front derr. from a forum member. BTP Campy Record and modded it to top pull.

Did some further modifications recently and the bike now has full Di2 drivetrain and internal wiring/battery. This included drilling 2 holes in the frame and a lot of soldering. Current weight is a bit over 7300g or 16lbs.



What's next? :noidea:

Yes this is the next thing but, a bit overkill for my riding and tubular may be somewhat trouble in MTB riding and not strictly racing...

Also, a lot of $$$, so I am thinking of a budget 29er build (maybe road) to try something new.

Awesome, I love it. How does it handle, and are the brakes with those rotors ok? Is it the AX saddle shape from Berk?

It handles great and is the best bike I've had. Recent wheel change contributes to this a lot, but I must say Dugast tires are much better than Tufo, which are a bit too narrow as well. To me they lack cornering grip. Frame isn't the stiffest but quick and complaint.

Still have not had a good chance to test the rotors. Rear is great but front was terribly noisy and just took it off. So so brake power too... I already have different pads so I'll experiment soon.

Berk combo is based on the Ax Lightness saddle. One of the best purchases too :thumbup:

I bet that bike rides like a dream being so light !
From the aesthetic side I would have set the saddle slightly more back.
But nevertheless.. awesome bike, congratulations !!
