It's been a slow progress..

Test rode the drive train today, suprisingly the Fibre Lyte chainrings shifts almost as good as the SR??
LW RD needs further fine adjustment, goes thru all 11 speed ratios without much drama :lol:
Next step, tubulars for the all black Obermayer.
Still considering, tan or should I stick to the all black side walls??

@caballero,

I do race, however not so much lately due to work.
If you happen to drop by Tokyo, send me a PM and I'll hook up with my team mates for a ride to the mountains west of Tokyo.

Here's what I race on

Currently in Kure City for a work.
Fantastic place for riding, as compared to Tokyo!

Picture attached is Mount Noro, overlooking Kure City, Hiroshima.
Kure was the birth of the great Japanese battleship, Yamato.

I've finally brought the weight down to 6520 gr.

Following are the component updates:

1. Clavicula standard crankset@170mm, Fibrelyte chainrings
2. LW RD
3. LW Obermayer/ Veloflex Record+Sprinter combo with tan sidewalls
4. Replaced the BTP bottle cages with Elite Patao with gold highlites.
5. LW stock skewers on the Front, Mavic Ti skewers on the rear for better clamp force.

I'm done with the built.

That is some serious bling. Loving the tan sidewalls on the bike!

@All,
Many thanks for the compliments.

Below pic was taken with my mobile, seems to highlite the tan sidewalls a little better.
The subtle, black edition LW sure looks better than the regular ones.
