A fine start indeed!!

Can you give us the proposed build list? Let me guess..... you are putting SRAM on it? But it looks like a Campy cassette?

What wheels are those? I thought the LW Schwarz edition had ceramic bearings so wouldn't have the white decal on the hub? OR are they standard and you have blacked out the Lightweight txt on the rim?

Cheers,
Lig.

Pfft Sram, no, i dont like it when the shifter paddles breaks off going up a climb and it drops me into the 12....

Shimano 11sp. These are standard Gen 4 LW Tubs but from a Focus Cayo Ltd (if you look closely they have focus written on them). Got them new for ~50% of RRP.

I have a dura ace 9000 crank but also a spare 105 5800 shift kit which i am thinking of throwing on for now until i decide whether i need 2 x di2 bikes.

I looking for some advice on a saddle. I have an all white Arione R3 which actually looks cool when it contrasts against everything else being black.

That said i'm finding it really hard to find an all black Arione in an R3 model (R7s are readily available and so too are R1's)

I have an Antares R3 but it has some blue on it....??? What do i do?

Just use the white R3 for the time being until a black one shows up. Get white tape to match if it bothers you that much.

If a saddle color sets you back from riding a sweet bike...

I really like Caad's with DA :thumbup:

Maybe a slammed 6° stem insted of the spacers and 17°?
