thought so. I have the 2010 version in similar colour scheme. My planned build is very similar to yours but with Red instead of Chorus. How do you like the CXR80's?

I haven't ridden the CC80s yet unfortunately as I didn't realise that the Mavic tubs are front/rear specific and got them the wrong way round. I pulled them off but didn't ha have enough time to reglue them before going back to university after Christmas. I'm back in mid march and will glue them up again. I expect that the will be fast and stiff. Never has deep wheels before. Looking forward to racing crits on them over March and April when I'm home.

My Pro-Lite Cuneo GP

Final Weight 7.2kg // should drop closer to the 7kg mark when I get around to ordering some carbon wheels

have been riding for less than 6 months and my first "bike build" as such...

Here is my freshly built Pro Lite advertising hoarding. Bargain basement weenyism; $5 Cateye cages, 12 bucks worth of machine work to drop the brake QR/ clamp mechs (saves 26gr) and a set of ti spindles for my Fartlek pedals. I'll take it for a ride in the morning and sort out the bar height then machine a light top cap to use with carbon spacers, as this area of the bike looks a little goofy to me.
There isn't much room for 25's in the rear end, god forbid I pick up a dog sausage along the rode :unbelievable:
Weight 7834gr with these heavy ass wheels.

So where do you guys get those pro-lite cuneo frames? I know that chainreaction has them but the seems to have only one size available...

Yeah That's where I got mine from, they were dead cheap but I guess they were too popular

"theosaurus", which break shoes are those?
And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

The brakes are just the early campag dual pivot ones; in an attempt to save weight I filed out the standard padholders, but stopped after realising that they still weight over 360grams... Now I'm looking for a pair of light brakes

I tried selling this frame but there wasn't any serious interest, so I built it up instead. Here it is right after finishing the build:

Is that the HiFlex seatpost? How do you like it? Also, how does the Tsunami ride? Thinking about one in the future.

I can't speak for fa63, but I really like mine. I mostly got it because I wanted custom geometry. I also race, and it is definitely not as stiff as I'd like it - I can feel it flexing on hard climbs and sprints. I'm not that heavy either (155 lb race weight). Also, frame weight is pretty anti-weenie - mine was 1400g with paint, but I got my complete bike sub 6.8 kgs with light components.
