Here are some build photos. Bike rides like a dream, could not be happier with the set-up. As pictured bike is 16.07 lbs, (well without bottles). I have a compact Rotor 3D+ that will save some weight, and I am looking to move to the 2012 red group soon. I would like to get the bike into the mid 15 lb mark. I will be chopping the remaining steer tube later this week. Let me know what you think.

No doubt someone will say my stem is crooked, I asure you it is not, the wheel is slightly turned to keep the bike balanced.

I would do it with tan sidewalled tubs and all black crankset. Maybe also black bartape and sadlle.

Niiiiiice! +1 for the tan sidewall tubulars. Can't say I like the Rotor chainrings either, but if they do they trick for you...

Great bike, can't wait for a good ride report.

I'd change the fork stickers to black to match the frame's stealth look, but that is just a minor point
