It's a little weird, the rear brake has a housing integrated into the frame, but the shifters do not. So, the brake is very easy to run; just a cable stop before entering the frame and upon exit, just like a normal frame. Since the shifters don't have any kind of guides inside the frame, you have to run housing the full length. Basically, I just decided it would be incredibly difficult to get the i-links compressed properly for such a long run, run all the way through the frame with all the twists and turns, not to mention, it would be expensive (probably 3 sets of shift housing needed). So, the links are only internal in the handlebars.

Juanmoretime was considering all i-links, we'll have to see if he pulls it off! Any updates there?

Mine is full I-Links. I ran mini for the shift. I had/have plenty of extra housing and it was pretty easy to do. If you decide to go that route and need some extra housing PM me.

I will post pictures of the cabling but am making a bar change to a Brezza non-UCI complaint bar.

oic thanks for the tips woz9683, these ilinks ain't cheap (any weight-weenie stuffs ain't cheap to begin with LoL)
so, my wallet certainly isn't agreeing with the all ilinks run :P

Juanmoretime: love your gorgeous set-up. Keep the pics coming.

Would like to ask some inputs from you regarding the prologo TTR; noticed that both of you are using the identical
piece. How would you rate the saddle? Vs Fizik Arione? SM Triathgel?

The Prologo Nago Evo TTR is on mine. I like it very much so far; it is not comfortable for me in a relaxed position, but when I get down in a TT position it really does disappear under me. The ribs on the nose are just enough to keep me locked in place, I definitely don't feel myself sliding around during hard efforts.

Thanks guys, glad you like it! I'll get some better pictures when I can. Hopefully some raceday pics as well.

@me, the Helium has some updates as well ;) I'll get pics for it up as soon as I can too.

Dexufto, awesome build, great weight! I'm actually creeping up to almost 8kg as pictured with the srm. Of course, just switching to mid-profile wheels would drop 6-700g. Although, frankly I don't think i'll ever need to do that around here. I took it out in 20mph+ winds the other day, and didn't have issues controlling it.

Hansonator, do it!

Here it sits with race wheels. 17.46 lbs with the H3, I didn't weigh it with the 808. 7.91 kg for the non US people. Its heavier than with the training wheels on it. :shock:

First tt this coming Tuesday night. I may have to scoot the extensions back a bit but it feels pretty good as she sits.

Hi all, been a longtime lurker including this thread.

Would like to know if anyone has any luck with a Firecrest wheel? Is the only way out to build a non Firecrest front wheel?

This is my ride, a rather porky ride as compared to the ones here. Apologies for the small chainring shot

I'm not sure about the rear but there was a thread over at Slowtwitch and the Firecrest does not fit the Plasma 2 fork. I believe it will fit the Plasma 3.
