@liketoride, size 42. 4g off. actually weight loss wasnt the primary reason, just wanted to clean out the tape residue and scratches. any g sanded off was a bonus.

FL's is the electronic model. My frame is the mechanical and it comes in at 768 frame and 300 fork (cut)

That's really nice! Looks great! The brakes throw it off a bit for me since anodized red doesn't really tie-in that well, but that is being ULTRA nitpicky. Fantastic!!
