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.

Nice looking ride, and thanks for the individual weights and regular picture updates. Bravo. :thumbup:

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.
