That's my first post here though I have been a reader for quite a while now.
For all of my cycling "career" I have been riding MTB, but I am considering getting a road bike thus wanted to ask you for some suggestions.
First of all - I am 188cm and 67kg (long legs, short torso) and the bike would primarily be used on even asphalt roads.
I want the bike to be moderately light and even though I can't say "money is no issue here" if justified, I could stretch my budget a bit.
It would be my first road build so I was thinking some reliable parts with a touch of boutique here and there.
I reckon I would go with Dura Ace, not sure if mechanical or Di2 - the price difference isn't that big considering total bike cost.
One thing that caught my eye is the difference between brakes 9010 and 9000, the first cost more or less twice as much - is it worth going for 9010?
Also thinking about Stages power meter - I have been reading and I think it might be a good option for the first power meter owned and honestly, I don't like SRM aesthetics.
So, if you could have a look at the below table and let me know your thoughts that would be great - feel free to criticize and offer hints and suggestions how to improve the build.
As for saddle, I find this model really compatible with my rear, so I wouldn't want to change that and for pedals, I have been using Time for my MTB bikes for close to 18 years and I really like them.
I have found some weight data, I think they are generally reliable.
As for the frame I have a couple of "alternative models" on my list, namely:
Bianchi Oltre XR
De Rosa King Action RS
Storck Fascenario 0.7Part Weight Make Alternatives

Thanks a lot for your insight and suggestions.
EDIT: seems like formatting of the above table is not displaying correctly, sorry.
And total build weight of "primary parts" adds up to approx 5.5kg, with "alternatives" it's around 5.9kg but more or less 25% cheaper
