Unfortunately the decals are under the clear coat so to remove them it's way more work than I want to so.

Plus I don't see it while on the bike. :shock:

Managed to get some free time to get my brakes set up. Routing the cables is very time consumming and to say things are tight is a bit of an understatement. The Di2 cables have been a complete nightmare. The photos in the Scott handbook are a work of fiction as there's no way it'll fit like they show with my 90mm stem (as supplied with the medium frame)

Front brake is a TriRig Omega and the rear is Dura-Ace 7800 (as recommended by Scott). Might eventually change the rear as the clearances are not as bad as I was expecting.

Rest of the build is Dura-Ace 7970 10 speed, Zipp Firecrest Clinchers (404 front and 808 rear), Conti Attack/Force tyres and hopefully the new fully integrated seat/seatpost solution from Dash. The guys from Dash have been very helpful and hopefully the Dash seatpost will allow for Di2 battery cable routing.

Looks like I'm heading towards a 8Kg build complete with pedals (and thats with every bolt changed to either a Titanium or Aluminium one).

Here's some more photos to be going on with:-









Will post some more infomation and photos very soon hopefully

Very nice build on the plasma 2. I am currently at S-1 and need to consolidate road and TT bikes. Looking at my reach and stack for road and T set-ups the plasma (large) fals right in the middle. Obviously there are compromises with a dual-purpose bike, or dual purpose anything for that matter but there are also compromises that have to be made to keep peace at home as well :)

So if anyone knows of a large frame for sale, I'm all ears .
