This build I have to follow. But don't take the stickers of on the wheels, think it won't look as good as with them even if they weigh a bit.

Why Tufo XC4 tyres instead of some nice FMB och A. Dugast? Even if they are a little bit smaller they are more comfortable.

That's going to be impressive.
I think those ax decals are sexy though.

I will not take off the stickers before the bike is complete, so I see how it looks, but I think they are to flashy.

I will try the XC4 because they are very easy to repair, and they are also supposed to be better than last years tires because of the jump to 210tpi.

I have been thinking of sending a pair of Race King SS and Eclipse tubes to FMB, but that would be a very expensive tire. I think Francois is using Michelin Latex tubes in his tires as standard, and they weigh 125-130g, so just the Eclipse tubes will save 75g.

I love Michelin latex tubes so have to get a pair of FMB tyres later this year. Will be using Tufo XC2 Plus now for racing, also hoping they will be better than their earlier tyres, ran Tufo XC2 last year.

Still waiting for the Di2 parts, and the crankset.

Will try to post pictures of the modifications to the frame to run the Di2 cables internally.

I think I will keep the "AX-Lightness" part, and remove the "SKT CC" part.

What size is your frame out of interest?
Start flat out ... then pick the pace up halfway
