Going for a nice and durable club-ride build. Got an EC90 std crankset and ceramic bb to come, Schwalbe tyres and Aliante saddle to complete the build.

Not sure if my scales are under-reading and the new 7900 wheelset weigh like bricks or whether its correct and the ultegra bits are coming in a bit light?

Looking forward to see the finished result. The colors on the frame looks great.

Looks good. I am a big fan of Easton components... except their cranks. I advise you steer clear and choose another option. Easton stopped making them after countless failures. I think, but am not sure, that they may have been recalled.

Careful of that EC90 stem too - flexy as hell apparently. Try an EA90 if you can.

Update, good to see that the Antares was bang on the claimed 145g (inner tubes were inside the tyres):

Rubbish pics of finished build (bar the rear brake - the adjuster barrel was missing!). Just done a 60 miler on it (with front brake only) and surprised how comfortable it was, hubs are awesome, top tube a bit wide when out of the saddle, undecided about the saddle, overall happy!

Oh, and I know the cages are gopping, just a stop-gap until I decide what I want.

I love it! One of my favorite carbon frames ever.
Nice Easton parts. Would be perfect with easton medium profile carbon tubulars.

Reassuringly legal (without bottle cages) :wink: To be fair, feels more than 1.5lbs heavier than the Litespeed:

Very nice.

Where did you manage to score an Astana Pro Machine though??

Really nice! As has been said, needs some Easton wheels though...

Not an Astana. Was a stock color.

The Astana frame we had was immaculate. Everything painted on.


But that is lovely. Love BMCs.
