Yes, I'm using Black Prince pads in my EEs, they take any Shimano-style pad.

Yup... using EE's on my Venge with DA9000. Love them. The modulation feels much smoother across the full length of the lever pull compared to the DA9000 brakes and obviously, lighter weight. I'm using Swiss Stop Black Prince Pads.

Nice looks like a pretty neat cable job, less that one stray brake cable on the right.

So with 9100/EE Brakes, R sys SLR clincher wheels and either a 9100P or NG on 2017 Sworks crank how light are people thinking a 58cm frameset can be built up?

Thanks... yes, they're all very tight. Unfortunately, that brake cable needs a little bit more slack there so that it doesn't pull when I turn the bars.

15-16lbs - just a wag

Really light would be etap and CLX 32 tubulars

Yeah I was thinking that combo also, I prefer the feel of 9100 over eTap tbh but if the ViAS frame sells bare I'll use the etap and P2M TypeS crank off it. Already have the Mavics and at 1300g bare they are more useable than tubs with the amount of sh*t on the roads here. Under 6.1kg would make me happy without haveing to use things like a GimGum expander etc, then swap put with the 202s, CLX64s and Stinger6s as needed :)

9150 is roughly 50g lighter than eTap I believe.

If I'm going electric it will be eTap as I've already got it on the ViAS. Dont see the value in 9150 over 9100.
