I will post it on this site, but it is still work in progress. I have been amazed at how long it takes to get some specialist pasrt from some companies, things like waiting 7 months for a seatpost and seat combo. I can give a list of some parts so far and hopefull will have evrything ready in a few months time.

Fork ---- Giant TCR Carbon (Dropouts painted black with special paint.)
Wheelset ----- Special Custom 870 grams (will post details on this as soon as I have the new set)
Skewers ---- Tune skyline black gold 17g
Rear Derailleur ---- Proshift (tuned to weigh 152grams)
Front Derailleur ----- Dura Ace (Tuned 67 grams)
Chain SRAM PC 89 Hollow pin 250grams
Cassette Tiso K7 (12-23 tuned to weight 96 and to work with campag)
Campag record ergo (Tuned 324 grams)
Seatpost + seat Ax-lightness combo 145grams
seatpost clamp BTP 7 grams
pedals Speedplay tuned 125 grams
Handlebars--- Tune skyline 145 grams
Stem ITM --- 94 grams
Cranks Stork powerarms 315grams
Bottom bracket Combination of three 126 grams (problems with getting this to work though)
