I'm really digging the colour scheme, the blue highlights look awesome.

What groupset are you planning on running? New Dura-ace 9000 would be very nice if you could get your hands on it ;)

EDIT: Doh! Didn't read the first sentence :P

SR will also be nice.

I'm gonna go ahead and ask,

What is that ridiculously long thing protruding from the headset?

Ah. I figured it out. But what happens next?

Handlebars should be too LTD, but still your bike is nice :wink: By the way, what will cranks?

Here it is currently with my race/beater wheels. Haven't weighed the whole bike but I'm assuming it's somewhere in the 14's. Still waiting on my Arundel bottle cages.

I'll be changing out the cranks to a Rotor 3D.

The stem really is very smart.

Hi Alfredox,

Thats a very very nice looking build - blue Nokon cables would work a treat!!

Thanks Lig! I did think about the blue Nokon cables but was too excited to build it up already. Maybe when I change my cables later on. :thumbup:

I think you're going to have to match the paint under the stem face plate too.

That's what I really wanted but I got too lazy. I think those would look better than the ones on my handlebar. :thumbup:

Beautiful build. I'm currently trying to do a similar one myself!

Did you use paint or tape to do the customisation on the stem and bars?

I've been looking everywhere for the actual argyle 3T stem and bars but no one seems to have them.... I know they exist somewhere (attached image)! If anyone knows where I can get these please let me know???

Cheers
