Please keep the yellow sidewalls! They look great IMHO.

Yes, the cable routing could use some work up front, and especially going into the RD. I do plan on replacing the seatpost with something else eventually - either 3T or ENVE. I chose the tan sidewall tires to break up the otherwise all-black wheels, plus I think they tend to add a touch of class.
Nice build nonetheless!

Thanks a bunch! I am a big fan of classic bend bars - the Rotundos are great. Your R3 is also stellar, by the way. I had a real hard time deciding against Campy for this one.

You've certainly got a point. I will be making those kinds of upgrades after a while and transferring the Pro bars+stem to Bike #2.
Here's the eventual plan:
Enve 1.0 fork
Praxis Works chainrings
3T ARX Team stealth stem
3T Rotundo Team stealth bars
'12 Red Yaw FD

Very unlikely to send this frame back for warranty, as I am not the original owner. Supposedly, according to Toby Stanton of Hot Tubes, the BB crack issue is cosmetic in nature only and will not result in failure. In any case, I have a CAAD10-1 frame that is itching for the parts on this R3, so I am going to ride it like I stole it!
I have been wondering for some time now about how Enve 6.7 would look on R3, now I have a answer, they look fantastic. I also like tan sidewalls, but maybe i'm biased because I also have tan sidewalled tubulars .
I'd say you should keep the 3T stem and handlebar and only swap seatpost.

I agree with this. I think the aluminum 3T looks better than the LTD stuff, which is more rounded and IMO not quite as aggressive looking.

I don't have a scale so I can't weigh the saddle. I like it well enough so far, but saddles are very personal. I've been off the bike for 6mo due to a deployment to Afghanistan (built this bike during R&R leave), so my arse isn't quite used to sitting on a bike anymore! Plus my old saddle was a Fizik Aliante, which is quite different, so that's two hurdles to jump. My longest ride with this saddle so far was 56 miles, and I felt like my butt needed a day off afterwards! In any case, I think it will be fine when I come back to the states for good in December and get some real time on it.
