Major Bike Porn there! Hard to stop staring at that bike. Thanks for posting the pics.

How have the Farsport 38's been. BTW - Which hubs did you order, and did they have ceramic bearings?

Is that 117g seatpost carbon fiber? I need to stick with a metal seatpost on my F85 so a 117g metal seatpost would be enough to get me to switch out the stock 321g Felt post.

Looks great, but black chainrings would take it over the top!

I'm cool with the rings.They tie nicely together with the rear derailleur.

I have a couple more upgrades which would get me in the 12 pound club. KCNC Cobweb chainrings is one of them along with KCNC C7's and Keo Ti's.

But I have to have $ for that lol.

The wheels are like magic. The best wheels I have ever owned. They accelerate like no other! its easy to maintain sped and they actually brake just fine. The whole bike makes me feel like I am unstoppable. It really is a awesome ride, makes me want to train harder and ride faster!

I got the ED Hubs with regular bearings. I'm considering ordering a set for my fixie from them now, lol

Thanks for the info on the seatpost and the mini-review on the Farsport 38's. I need a seatpost with 25mm setback so that exact post might not work, but at least now I know I have options in aluminum besides just a Ritchey. I'll investigate further because the stock post is 321g(!!!) as I remember. Even though it's a spare bike, the thought of saving close to half a pound is tempting.

Also, Spider-Rings and C7's...Really like the way you think.
