Hello Everyone,
Been here for a while now, never posted before but I just wanted to share with you my new bike. Its not exactly a weenie bike as my previous build but I wanted to try something different this time around. For staters I had the same frame in 2013 year model in a 10 speed Sram Red build but had to send it to warranty and received this frame this week.

Here it is:

The build:

Handlebar: Zipp Servie Course Sl-80 40cm

Thank you. Yes I'm taking it into consideration. I had the black cable housings but later decided to go with the green just to see how it looked but im changing them as soon as i get the chance and the decals on the rims are going to be changed to the matte black on the newer versions.

Very nice! I would go black on the cable outers but keep the white decals on the rims.

Thanks guys! This new build although its heavier feels a lot more efficient in terms of power transfer.
The front end also feels more connected to the road than previously, maybe due to the longer or stiffer stem, idk.

I wanted to share with you the previous build before it was sent to warranty.

Since I'm building my new bike with Scott Foil 2015 Team frame...
Do you recommend SRAM Red 22 or DURA ACE 9000?
Given I'll be doing triathlon races with it (Sprint, Olympic and 70.3 Ironman).
