I was finally able to acquire my dream bike, a Meivici! This should compliment my 03 Odile nicely. Projected weight is around 14 lbs. Not all the parts have come in yet, so I'll post as they come and when it's all done. It will be built with the following:
Campagnolo Super Record 11 (2010)
KMC X11SL Gold chain
Chris King headset
PRO Stealth EVO handlebar and stem
Crank Brothers Eggbeater 4Ti (my mountain bike roots)
Woodman Carbo EL seatpost
Extralite seatpost clamp
San Marco Aspide Composite saddle
Reynolds MV32 UL tubulars
Can't decide on tires, either Veloflex or Conti GP 4000 SR
Vincero bottle holder
Power Cordz cable
Once I dial in the saddle position, I'll probably make a call to Jure to make me a Berk combo!

I ogled over your meivici many times before pulling the trigger on mine. Yeah, it will be close. I'm optimistic . I'm at around 4394 grams without wheels/tires, pedals, and bar tape. I have a set of Reynolds MV32 UL coming with Conti GP4000 SR tires. Just got some Eggbeater 4ti pedals.
Nevertheless, the Meivici is a stunner. Since the bar rotation isn't adjustable, just make sure you bring the levers further up before you cable and tape them.

Yeah, once I have the tires mounted, I'll put it in on a trainer to make sure everything is fit and proper. Thanks!
