I've only made a few posts to date, mainly on components and the like. I'm awaiting to here word on a new job, and if I get it I will likely be ordering the Cannondale Evo.

Yet, for now, I'm riding my tried and true Kestrel Talon.

Seen here with my training
Ksyrium wheelset
Michelin Pro Race 3's
Campagnolo Record 10s group
Thomson Masterpiece seat post
Fizik Antares 00 saddle
Wipperman chain
Ritchey stem (temporary)
FSA K-wing handlebar
Fizik bar tape
Speedplay Zero titanium spindle

I'm 6'1" (1.85m), 174lb (79kg), and I think the bike weighs as much as me, something like 16.2lb (7.35kg) and even heavier with the current wheels.

I am a fairly powerful rider and the frame has noticeable flex in the sprint and hard pulls.

I'm considering the Evo with the Red group. What do you all think about the components I have compared to the Evo Red? Swap anything?

What's your feedback?

Frankly, I'd seriously consider keep the bars, seatpost and group (pending funding maybe get the Cannondale crank). But really, a build with those components plus a nice set of wheels, thats a pretty legit set up.

I'm fairly happy with the setup, aside from the frame. It's just to heavy and the flex is very obvious.

I'm a fan of the campy 10s group, yet the 11s ergo shifters I've heard reviews on, so I may give those a go.

I certainly need to get a deeper wheel set.

Looks good. I would recommend going to a bike shop and riding SRAM Red. I moved to it from Shimano, and found it to be about the same...
