Hi,

Been lurking a while but thought I'd post my new Cyfac Absolu build and the rest of my collection. Put a couple of hundred miles on the Cyfac now and I'm loving it, does everything I wanted from it. Just need to cut down the steerer once I'm happy with the position.

Frame + Fork: Cyfac Absolu (56cm, tapered steerer, custom colours, matching cages)
Wheels: Dura Ace C24 Clinchers (with Veloplugs)
Groupset: Dura Ace
Saddle: Specialized Toupe Pro
Pedals: Look Keo Blade CroMo
Stem: Deda Zero100
Bars: Bontrager RXL Blade VR-C
Bartape: Fizik Dual
Tyres: Bontrager R3 (with Michelin latex tubes)

Weighs 15lb 15oz (with cages & garmin mount)

Here's the Scott CR1 Pro 2008 (17lb 5oz) it replaced:

And my Specialized S-Works Stumpjumper FSR 2008 (changes between 25 & 27lb):

And my Specialized Stumpjumper Carbon HT 2010 (22lb):

All the bikes are nice, but that Cyfac is AWESOME! I've always liked the Cyfac's but this one is better than any of the others I have seen.

WOW! Amazing Cyfac. I love the geometry, the horizontal top tube, the tubeset design, the colors, everything...

Yep, that Cyfac is an outstanding frame. Though personally, i think the build is a bit too much of a mish mash for a top frame like that. Why did you choose for those components?

Cheers guys. I'm really pleased with the result. I ended up almost doubling my original budget but I think it was worth it in the end. Definitely an improvement over my old Scott, just a bit lighter, stiffer, faster and just as comfortable (I was already happy with the Scott's comfort).

As to the component choices the only real mix is in the saddle, bars and stem (unless you count the tyres). I've put the Specialized saddle on it because I know it's a saddle I really get on well with and I'll be putting a lot of miles on the bike. I was going to go for a Deda bar as well as the stem but when it arrived it was a lot heavier than claimed (which was already heavier than the Bontrager bar) and it cost more too. The Bontrager bar was one of the lightest I can still put some aerobars on and I already knew I got on with the shape as I've used them before.

That Cyfac frame is gorgeous and really shows the true potential of building with carbon. The detailing is fantastic and interesting. The color scheme is also fantastic and not typical (read not red). It just looks expensive (because it is!) and fast. I love it!

Your hardtail is super sweet too. Great stable!
