Here's a few pics of a couple of new builds, I hope you like the look of them.

The Storck weighs 7.2 kg as pictured and the Vortex 7.6 kg.

I have ordered a Easton EC90 seatpost that would save me 40g for the Storck but I like the look of the Ti one now its fitted. Its also got a 240g bottom bracket in that will be changed when it needs to be and I have a Record 11-23 cassette that will shave a bit more off.

Any comments would be welcomed.

Both are very nice, but I think a carbon post looks better with the Storck.
