I took the advice of the forum and waited until I had enough cash for a great frame set rather than spending cash on my ribble.
Here it is now:
Build list (may change)
Cervelo R5 vwd Frame and Fork
Sram red shifters
sram red rear mech
Sram red front mech
Some cables I havent tried before (open to suggestions)
Rotor 3d+ Cranks and Q rings (not sure about compact or standard)
Chain (open to suggestions)
SLR Kit Carbino Saddle (purchased)
Doric LTD setback post (came with frame)
Yinshun Lightweight 50mm tubular wheelset
Veloflex carbon tubs
Ergonova or rotundo carbon bars
3t team stem alu
extralight expander and topcap
Look Keo Carbon Pedals
Arundle Mandible Cages
Arundle Black soft tape
Planet x brakeset
Let me know what you think on the build list!

They are not horrible but if you are looking at saving money, why go Red group, why not go with a Force groupset and other lower end options if you want to save money.
I don't agree. The Planet X brakes are light, cheap (or at least lighter and cheaper than most brakes out there) and work fine. In what way is that a compromise similar to your example of ditching Red for Force?
You could say the same about the wheels; if you can't get Lightweights you might as well get a set of Mavic Aksiums?
I have some 38mm Yinshuns which are good on my wife's bike so I went for the 50mm for this; may get some zipps next year. Never tried veloflex before but I have heard good things.
Sod those EE brakes, they are too costly for me; they look great
That would give 821g frame.
But if I can see well, it includes 4x cage bolts (4g) and I presume cable guide with steel bolt (5g)...?
welkman so it's not that bad with the frame weight. Only 7g difference (excluding cage bolts) compared to mine.

I ve seen a lot of R5 VWD around 750g size 51/54.... size 56 at 780g....does size 58 adds +70g (56 size)?
My R5 VWD LTD, size 56 is on the way from Cervelo Europe (replacemnet of R3), so I am wondering what the weight of my frame will be.
So many choices.
