Finally the first picture of my bike. It is not yet finished, but getting closer. The saddle and handlebar must be still adjusted. The height of the spacer stack will be checked when I am able to ride the bike; it is still winter here. The brakes are not yet fully adjusted; the front derailleur cable needs to be trimmed.

The weight of the bike in the current condition, without the pedals and other missing parts is 7.05 kgs according to my digital luggage scale.

All components are Campy Chorus, older and newer parts mixed. The handlebar and the stem are 3T Ergosum and Arx Team 110 mm. The crankset is a Fulcrum Torq RS. The saddle is a Flite and the post is a Cannondale Save.

The wheels are custom built Powertap wheels, with GS rear and front hubs, Easton R90 SL rims and CX Ray spokes (20/24). The rims are very nice, 27 mm high and 24 mm wide (19,5 mm internal). The 23 and 25 mm Conti tyres create a nice smooth profile with them.

Still missing are at least the bottle cages, the bar tape and the pedals. Cages will be most likely the Tacx Deva's and the pedals will be Shimano Ultegra Carbon.

I am really looking forward to test the bike, but I suppose it will take weeks before the roads are clear. I have been riding carbon bikes for years, so it will be nice to see how the aluminium has evolved during the time.

Perhaps, but currently all my bikes have these old school Campy/Fulcrum Ultra Torque cranksets. Makes servicing so easy.

Strange that the camera angle makes the saddle to bar drop look almost non-existing.

Sweet 12!

Dose anyone have a link or part number for the "slam my stem" bearing dust cover? I just ordered a new 12 frameset and want to start acquiring the build parts!

Thanks

KP253 is the factory dust cover, it doesn't have any branding on it though.

Hey Gents. Thanks for the kind comments, however, I wanted to ask to please be respectful of peoples own build threads and not post photos of your own builds and starting discussions your build and parts in someone else's build thread. I thought this this was common understanding and etiquette in "Introduce Yourself" gallery. Please feel free to start your own build thread or post in Cdale or CAAD build threads for random photos/updates. Not trying to be a dick here but I feel like it creates a messy thread and at some point makes things difficult to follow. That's all. Carry on. Recently installed an SRM and a bigger stem. Photos coming soon! Cheers!
