Actually for this bike to be completely finished I need to make the shifter levers all black and buy a new RED black rear derailleur and then it would be complete.

Even better still 8)

Wheelset might have to be sold. Work screwed up my taxes and I have to look at repaying a fair bit of money and the wheels are a logical choice for now since I will not be racing this year and can roll on some stock wheels I have in the garage.

Beautiful build! It looks great. I'm glad you're happy with it.

Why did you name it Danica?
If you call it, will it come to you?

Honest question, just wondering. There are a few people here and on other places that have named their bikes female names. I don't understand that, personally. It's not a pet, it's not a living person, child, friend, family... certainly we spend a lot of time on our bikes and there is an intimate connection for all the miles and experiences we log on the saddle in far off places and beautiful scenery, or scary situations... but to give it a personified proper noun-type name, I just don't understand it.

The SLC is being rebuilt. Currently I am just finishing up the behind the stem cable entry, waiting for the new saddle/post combo and also waiting for the TriRig Omega brakes. Once this is done the goal will be Sub 6000g if possible with all of the additional aero goodies. I have also installed full aero carbon rings which added a fair bit of weight.

The saddle/post combo will be 173 when finished but there is also some metal that needs to be removed from the bottom of the post. So maybe 165g when completed. This will save me 120g over the last post and saddle. This will put me at 5910g. The Omega brakes will add in 70g back into the build so the finished weight will be 5980g.

Here are some pictures of the saddle/post combo in progress.

This build is awesome, and an inspiration for my S2 for sure. Where have I seen those pics before? :noidea:

I like how we are inspired by each others builds.

I'm just hoping you decide to sell one of your Omegas once they actually are made. You don't need them on the back, that's just going to add weight. That air is so dirty it won't matter anyway. ;)

Well you will see them before I do so hopefully all four make it my way.

Omega brakes for road bikes?? I'm sure this is more a TT brake "if" its the same brake I'm thinking.

Well we are going to see how they perform on the road bike. I do not see a problem with running them on the road bike as I have seen the results of the testing and they performed very well. That being said might as well try them out.

I'm just hoping you tell me they work awesome, so I can buy one for the front of my bike.

Worst case is that I run my rear EE brake on the back and the Omega up front.

The finished product. Weight should be less as I have to remove the metal at the end of the post still. I am hoping that once I have used the dremel on the metal in the post that I can at least get this down to 165g which would be very nice. The post was 102g so that means the saddle on top is 63g which is very nice.
