This has taken me nearly 6 months to finish and i'm not quite there yet.
Everything is second hand except for the bars and pedals and I've had to improvise a bit to make it work. Big thanks to Eran Caspi and the guys in his shop (club?) who patiently helped/tolerated me and also to farm_lim for the headcap - which I need to paint black.
As it stands it's 5.74 Kgs.
It originally had one bottle cage and I preferred it this way but I found myself needing more water during races.
I'm not convinced by the aesthetics of the cages but they hold bottles well and look OK on the scales (10g each).
Could not find anywhere to buy the 9g BTP cages which are the lightest that I could reasonably accept without sacrificing function and reliability.
Also, at some point a lighter crank may be needed and I'd like to find some KCNC brakes, but not sure.
I also tried a lighter, non-setback post, it looked a little wrong and I went back to the stock Ritchey offering.

Frame: Canyon CF SLX 52 cm
Fork: Canyon one-one-four SLX
Headset: Acros ai-70 integrated lock headset with 5mm stack (from farm_lim)
Handlebar: Zipp 40cm 171g
Stem: Ritchey WCS -17, delogo'd 100mm
Levers: Campagnolo Record 10
Brake calipers: ZG ti (mismatch of pads - ENVE and Lightweight)
Front derailleur: Record 10
Rear derailleur: Record 10 tuned
Cranks: Record 172.5 (heavy)
Pedals: Exustar E-PR200CKTi 180g
Cassette: Record 10 12-25
Cables and housing: Nokon
Chain: Record
Seatpost: Ritchey VCLS 145g, delogo'd and cut
Saddle: Becker 61g
Rims: LEW
Spokes: ?
Hubs: Tune mig/mag
Skewers: Far and Near 41g
Tires: Continental Sprinters, tubular
Cages: Unbranded carbon, 10gs each, bolts 2g

Looks great! :) Are those tubbies for training only or for racing as well? You could safe some grams and get some nicer tubbies without sacrificing too much durability.

Impressive. Looks like a very nice racing machine at an insane weight.

Bravo.

alfredox5, isn't Competitive Cyclist bringing Canyons to the US market? :noidea:

As much as Lew gets poor flak around here, those wheels still look damn right sexy.

Nice build! :thumbup:

how do you like your exustar pedals? I'm loving mine!

@mdeth1313, I'm still ambivalent about the Exustars, I actually purchased them after reading some of your posts.
The price and the weight are excellent, they just don't feel as secure as the keos, there is noticeably more float and clipping out is difficult. I'm going to perservere for the next few weeks, I really want to like them and maybe it's just new pedal syndrome. Perhaps I have to just make the usual adjustments until I adapt. I'm always a little frustrated if a new purchase doesn't magically turn me into Pantani!

@Kastrup, good point, what do you suggest? These tubs have been on the wheels for a while and are filled with pitstop - the roads in my country are more akin to skips. Although we're advanced enough to have introduced recycling bins into the local populace, they are still a little unsure as to their purpose and tend to stick with what they've always known. Hence, hard shoulders are for glass bottles and other objects arranged from crystallized quartz!

I have not raced on the LEWS, I have some 303s which have no where near the same ride quality but are far more reliable. The LEWs are akin to a beautiful woman - they are a high maintenance commodity, and I don't entirely trust them.

:lol:
Where I work there is no need to buy it!
(Although its recreational use would probably compromise an oath I once made? :wink: However, my renal function is deteriorating with my age....mmmm....Pantani....)
