They have been v clever with that new scheme to make it look more balanced than the previous model. Get it built up so we can have a proper look!

With a little modification you will get the seatpost mount work with carbon saddle rail. I've been riding for a year now with a tune komm-vor on my S5.

The Ciamillo brakes you have, are they wide enough for the firecrest rims?

It's like most new things, whether it is new paint schemes or new shapes - I thought the 2013 paint scheme was horrible on first glance.

It is starting to look better. Can't wait to see this one built up!

How is the quality of the paint? I'm seeing some blemishes in the pictures but not sure if they are smudges or actual problems in the finish.

what kind a modification did you do ? I believed the ciamillo that i have will work on the wider rims it is the newest model they have. although my zipp is the pre firecrest version 2011 Toroidal shape.

paint quality is not the bad but not the greatest, since it's matte black it's totally different finish with paint job with clearcoat on it. the blemish you see in the pictures are oil stain.

I filed down the alu parts on witch the saddle rail leans a bit, you have to use a small round file.

The Ciamillo's will work. I have a pair of GSL and Gravitas on my FC 404. Make sure they have the "super low profile" pad holders.

Normally i hate big bulky aero frames, but this build looks really great!

Would also be fun to see the finished bike with your Circus Monkey/Nemesis wheels on it :twisted:
