Hey!

This is the my first bike worth posting here, I started buying parts like 2 years ago but other stuff got in the way. The build was finally completeted last week, june 19th!
I didn't weigh all the parts so you're just getting the weight for the whole bike, I'll get a picture with a scale eventually.

My build philosophy has been Looks>Weight>Function which might seem weird to some of you but I really love bike aesthetics. As I continue to refine the build and make it lighter that will always come first :)

Final weight: 5.97 kg

Ye, I'm still experimenting with cockpit height. But will cut it once I'm done.

Nice, it's clear you put a lot of thought into that.

Nice! I have almost the same bike & wheelset, but with clinchers and steel cassette @ 6.1kg. Been riding and racing it since spring last year & it never missed a beat.

Great build!

Wow!Strangely,Ultegra here matches perfectly with the colours you chose...usually dura-ace looks better but not here!..the only thing that looks a bit off is the little red square in the crankset...see if you could hide it somehow or make it celeste...it would look gorgeous!!! nevertheless,the bike is sublime as it is!! Keep :up: !

Really classy looking FM066SL. I have never seen a black cassette before? Is it painted, anodised or some sort of wizardry?

P.S. I like your priorities

How do those rings shift with Di2? I was thinking about getting them with my next build.

Does look good, the 24's really match the slim tubes of the frame. If you're all about looks, I'd suggest sanding and re-lacquering the crank arms so they're all black...

Very nice! +1 for sanding the crank. You could also paint the derailleur hanger black. I have an fm011 with the same hanger and and used a black permanent marker. After a few months its still perfectly black.
