DuraAce wheelset is a great choice and you will not regret it. And it fits very well to that very nice bike of yours!

Here is an update with few new goodies. As for now the bike is done.

I've added the Shimano Dura Ace C24 wheels which helped to drop close to 200 grams from the old wheels. I've also upgraded the cassette to a Ultegra 11-28t cassette. I did a small mod and removed the 11t cog and added a 16t cog which will get more use than the 11t. As pictured she weighs a hair over 15lbs. I'll have to get an official scale to get an exact number.

Very nice ride!! I agree that a white saddle, white bar tape, and pink hoods would really finish it out.

The wheels helped quite a bit with that. I'm sure with a lighter crank, cassette and RD. I can be sub 15 easily. I'm happy with the 15lbs and its very rideable :thumbup:
