Hi, This is my first build. I've been reading this site for a little more than a year and I've really been inspired by all of the creative projects I've seen here. Prior to this build I was riding a Cannondale Six Carbon Five with a number of small upgrades. I got that bike down to 7.3kg, so I started this project with a goal of sub-7kg, but I was having fun and the weight kept dropping.

I started the build with a Pro-Lite Cuneo frame purchased on ebay. I discussed the anodizing vs. powdercoating decision in this thread: In the end, I had a net gain of 2g after bead-blasting and powdercoating.

Looks beautiful!

I'm glad that thread was of some help. Powdercoating looks great!

With the Edge 1.0 fork...When/if I cut the steerer tube further after a few long rides, is it best to have a spacer on top, or can I cut it a few millimeters below the stem?

You should be OK without a spacer. My 1.0 fork is about about 1.5mm below the top of my stem and I'm using a KCNC Team Issue stem.

Nice build...

Have you any feedback on the bottle cage?
It looks nice and light... I'm just wondering if it holds on to the bottles well...
