This is my dream bike that I built up and is my sunday rider. Floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee, truly a do it all frameset. Final weight is 12.9lb as pictured and I love it.

Are you a professional photographer? The photographs are stellar.

You may want to consider adding (one of them) to the thread 'best shots of your bicycle' or something..

Very nice big bike, congratulations!

The only thing that strikes me as odd is the bar tape - with the black stripes of different widths it looks a bit as if you missed something in the wrap ;).

Oh, and parts list with weights, please.

Nice. Do you slide forward on your saddle? It doesn't look level.

It is the Deda Eleganza and it was really hard to get an even white to black ratio on the drops and bends especially on the inner and outer radius so I did my best and in person it looks a lot more even and equal while saddled.

As you can tell from the photos I never rode the bike before the shoot so I kind of just threw it on there and sure enough it almost ruins the pictures. Was so concerned about everything else never even second guessed the saddle until after. My actual saddle is moved back with a 2* drop in the nose.

I did not individually weigh every component, I used a Feedback Sports Ultimate Digital Bike Scale, but everything is stock except some tuning to the frame with a titanium bolt for the E Post and a one piece Carbon Spacer instead of the plastic ones they provide for post height. Also the Shimano Dura Ace derailleurs got titanium hardware swapped out. Anyways here is the build list, feel free to comment and let me know if you think something would better serve my ride!!

Look HSC 6 Fork Tapered
FSA Integrated Headset 1.125"-1.25"
