Hi,
if I were you, I would build cheaper, which does not mean heavier wheels on a lightweight hubs and KinLin or Ambrosio tubular rims - Crono f20 or Nemisis, which are a little heavier. Perfect for crit.
I like the blue color, it will be a very nice dale.

Swapped the carbon spacers from stock to BBB UltraSpace and saved a whopping 4g :D

Finally the build begins....... and quickly comes to a halt.......

Nice high head tube on this bike so I suspect the stack height will end up being quite low when I have been in for a set up.

Now blue or black skewers? I'm leaning towards the blue......

I'd go black skewers. Too much blue will kill the bike

That is such an awesome blue.

Reminds me of the Maritime Blue on Porsches.

Brakes = 287g
FD Clamp = 26g

w/ Easton Wheelset & Conti Tubs = 1732g

Total = 7017g
- BB30 Bearings weight unknown 50g?

Total should be 6905g - TBC

All done! :thumbup:
Total weight with pedals and bottle cages........ Drum roll............
6.81Kg :faint: I was stunned. I was expecting closer to 7Kg so I am really really happy.
These pics are before setup so final weight may still change depending on whether I cut the steerer or not.

You may need to check your bottle cages. They are mounted upside down.
