I love the frame(have the same one) but I don't care for the white bar tape and saddle. Some deep aero wheels would look sweet.

Some bigger pictures would be great. Might sound strange, But have you thought about some orange tyres and bar tape as a contrast? :wink:
Also some campagnolo 11 speed would look fab :wink:

Needs some bigger pics to do the bike justice. 8)

from the size of the picture I'd almost say they have a wooden rim :lol: But that's probably just the sidewall and low profile rim being melded together because of lack of pixels.

I am not a big fan of white, especially when the frame doesn't contain any significant white, it just doesn't fit it, a red matching the logo's would've probably been better.

A larger picture would be appreciated.

I refer you to the Official Euro Rules Of Cycling Para 13
13. The seat shall ALWAYS be white along with the handlebar tape, and must be made in Italy or France.
- Exceptions to this rule are seats or handlebar tape
containing the following colours: WorldCup Stripes,
Olympic Gold, Italian flag colour combo (green red
white).

A very fine steed sir.

I would have broken the euro rules and gone with black saddle and tape.

Nice Time. I havent seen one yet with SRAM and it works.
The F20s can be built pretty light esp with EL hubs. Be sure to update with pics and weights when they are done,
