I like it more now than I did before and thought it was beautiful then.

It figures I would get it back on an overcast day. Pictures do it no justice. My only concern at this point is the handlebars. I'm not sure I'll keep them. The reach is a bit longer than I realized. I may go back to the original Easton bars.

Updates from original:
Paint - Pearl Orange with "ghosted" logo
Drivetrain - DA 9070, internal battery in steer tube, updated junction box under the stem instead of inside (for access to charging port)
3T Aeronova bars
Edco stainless steel cassette - for use with 10-speed wheels (works great on the stand, can't wait to try it riding)
New Nokon cables, Vittoria tires, KMC X11SL DLC chain, Serfas bottle cages, DA b/b, Chris King headset

I have to figure out a way to hide the old charging port on the seat tube.

1. I didn't.
2. It's better than slipping off.

You won't slip off the tops. They were not designed to be taped.

I am not a fan of super sloping road frames but the project is really interesting.

Cool

I like them taped. Actually I hate when tape stops just after the hoods

Here is a "before" photo. The wheels in the photo were not mine.

Love those bottle cages, great detail! I'm guessing you had those painted to match?

Absolutely amazing bike.

Believe it or not, those bottle cages were stock off the shelf at the local bike shop. I suspect they ordered that color just for me.
