Finished the build last night. The bike rides amazing. Very stiff but doesn't beat you up to bad. The weight as the bike is built is 15lbs and 2oz. Brakes and wheels are temp for now. I just started putting my Lynskey together. Running out of funds. LOL. I will take better pics later.

really nice build with great colorway matching...probably the only bike with colored hoods that I have seen where they are actually a perfect match with frame colors. However, what is up with those bright orange/red cable guards?

LOVE THE FRAME COLOR! You did a great job matching all the colors although I am not fan of the white stem. I feel as if black would be a better color. You draw white from the saddle which suits it very nicely. But none the less, great build!

Great finish! I think as well that a black stem would look better in my opinion.

Most of the parts I used came off my old ride. I plan on running a 90mm lighter stem. Either a KCNC stem or a Ritchey stem. As far as the I-link cable covers, orange is the color that came in the box. I plan on looking for black ones, any ideas would be great.

I use jagwire on my bike. They have a whole assortment of cables and they're cheap off ebay. They come in at about 180g

Very nice indeed! Unfortunately we couldn't get hold of that over in the UK.

I'm currently deciding whether to stick with my AR or to swap it for an F series Frame. Decisions decisions!

Its been a while since I have posted on the Forums so I thought I would share some upgrades im doing to the ride.

I purchased a used set of KCNC C6's and Installed them last night.

I will be ordering a set of 38mm clinchers from fareast next month Installing a Red cassette, Keo Carbons, Cutting the Stem down, shortening the seat post from 350mm to 290.

Hopefully will be in the 13.5lb range when Im done.

As it sits now it is 14 pounds 12 ounces
