Just pimp it out with as much light stuff as possible to compliment Rob's work. I do love the forks and now am thinking to sell the EDGE/ENVE forks and stem and have Rob build me something new. Yes the weight would go up but the sexy factor would go up as well and I think I would still be under 6.8

1000 gram, low profile wheels, or 1200 gram 50mm wheels. Sweet Wings cranks with CT2 chainrings. Easton bars. Selle Italia Carbon saddle. Speedplay X1 pedals. Only thing I am lacking is brakes... was going EE, but am thinking ZG now. Trying to find a used set to suit my budget. Taking "thing-one" to BMX races all over the country every weekend is getting expensive. :podium: hahaha

If you are going to have the rear brake exist like I did then the EE is not the best option. The Zero Gravity worked better.

Yeah, that's what Rob and I talked about. My budget won't allow EE right now either. Brakes are the only component I don't have. If I can't get a good deal on some used ZG, then I'll likely buy some KCNC or something along those lines and upgrade later.

I really wanted my EE brakes on the English build but a standard brake set up was just the best option. Well I really wanted the TRP T726R brake on the rear and front but in the end, a standard option was best.

I still think for looks the T726R with custom cable hanger would have been very very slick but might not have fit the build look with the tiny seat stays.

The KCNC brakes will look very good on your build.

I thought about asking Rob to build in cantilever studs on the fork so I could use a Specialized aero brake... like on the Transition and UCI-legal Shiv.

That would have been cool for the front and back actually but then it limits you to that brake only which I was not keen on.

We just finalized the finish details... "chrome" powdercoat under clear rather than true chrome plating.

Brakes are still an issue... actually, my budget is an issue and I have yet to purchase brakes. hahaha :doh:

Getting closer - just the stem to do, plus the last bits of final clean up on the frame and fork:

and I have the battery now, second generation looks very slick - 88g and 50% more capacity than the stock Di2 battery:

Hoping to get it through paint this weekend......

Rob.

That looks beautiful. I'm getting very excited for my English CX build coming up later this summer.

Very nice already, love that fork. How much does a fork like that weigh?
