I have always wanted 2 bikes, racing bikes, so I went through with it.
It is German frame 2012 Rose Carbon Pro RS all in black it will be build on with Shimano Ultegra DI2 group-set.

I'm in the process right now. I have got almost all the components beside the saddle and the pressfit bottom bracket for the bb90 Shimano. I'll put it with my LBS mechanic after the weekend in order to complete the build.
I'll show pictures throughout the process.

The bike details:
2012 Rose Carbon Pro RS complete internal routing computable DI2.
Shimano Ultegra DI2 group-set.
3T handlebar, stem (120mm, +\- 17 degrees), and 3T pro black bar tape.
Rose integrated headset.
Shimano Ultegra 6700 chainset 53/39 with172.5mm crank arms.
Shimano Ultegra BR6700 brake callipers.
BB Pressfit BB90 Shimano bottom bracket (right now the GXP is installed but it will be removed).
Shimano Dura Ace 7901 chain 114 links.
Shimano Ultegra cassette 11/28 ratio.
Wheelset: Zipp 404 tubular or 2012 Mavic Cosmic SL.
Pedals: Speedplay Zero.
Saddle: Fizi'k Arione Wind Flex.
Seatpost: Rose Carbon 187 grams.

I'll be happy to have your comments. Image

Nice looking frame/bike, but I probably would use a different angle stem and remove the spacers under the stem. If possible I also would change the cone looking headset never a big fan of that kind of look.
Enjoy your new bike.

Looks like it's going to build up into a nice bike. What does the frame weight?

I have ridden this frame once, really loved the stifness.

Also wonder what is the weight?

any suggestion regarding a different cone headset! I personally love the 17degrees stem. I don't like when it rise up but this is very personal to me. I agree about the cone it looks bad and too high but I prefer the down angle stem for now and not to cut the fork, otherwise if I change the stem, ill get the remaining steerer stick up.

I didn't weight it but it is pretty light, I think the official weight is 1050 grams.

So today I got it built, beautiful. Very happy with the end result. Great frame, stiff, fast, really smooth ride and the Ultegra DI2 is just flawless. I really love it. The only thing is that my LBS couldn't insert the DI2 cables into the frame and this frame takes Ultegra DI2
Check this link http://www.rosebikes.co.uk/article/rose-carbon-pro-rs-3100-compact/aid:529168
so it is all external right now which is not good. This frame built to take it internally. I'm checking what's the catch here. If anyone knows I would love to her your advice.
Here some pictures

check bar fly for garmin. It is not the brand I have but it is the same. Just google it. It is very nice and comfortable better than on the stem.

nice bike, but I don't really get why you've put a -17° stem on there with so much spacers under it... imo it would look better if you get rid of the spacer and put a -6 or -8 stem...

And then what the steerer is standing up 3 cm with spacer or do I cut it? I prefer to have the fork uncut rather than have it raise up above the stem. it is only 1 spacer of 1 cm above the headset cone. The headset cone of the Rose is quite big that's right.
