The build plan is as follows:
DA 7970 DI2 group with the stock battery modified to fit in the seat tube
Praxis BB30 conversion bottom bracket
DA7950 crank with 50/36 gearing
FSA SL-K Stem
FSA K-Force New Ergo 42cm bars
FSA K-Force seatpost
Specialized Toupe Pro saddle
Tune bottle cages for Tacx bottles (15g each)
DA7900 12-25 cassett
I'm still undecided on wheels, but I'm leaning toward a Zipp 202 at the moment.
@crimsonbadger ~ I know the issue well. You can get around it if you have everything set up perfectly. Currently I'm using an FSA 36t gear and it's working really well on a bike that is running a 6700 front derailleur. My favorite combo though was te 50/39 I could get with Rotor 130 bcd Q-rings. Loved the ratio but the Q-rings just didn't work for me.
I'm just waiting on a few small parts and I'll resume the build. The shop lost the front gromett for the rear brake line so I ha to order one up, and I also had to order the proper Shimano DI2 grommets as well.
So far I'm really impressed. The frame weighed 817g on my scale with the rear hanger but without the seatpost clamp. The fork comes in at 328g with the uncut steerer tube. I can't wait to finish this one. It's already got me more giddy than the last 2 S-works Tarmacs and 3 Cervelos that I've built only to turn around and sell just to go back to my old trusty CAAD8.

328 miles over 4 days may be a challenge to some people, but in terms of equipment I do not see why it would prevent you from making the bike as light as possible.
In fact, it would most likely make your 'challenge' a bit easier.
@prendrefeu - your right, 328 in 4 days really isn't all that much. The second day of the ride has some real climbs, but I really want the bike to be comfortable too. My goal is to have it as light as possible, while keeping the DI2 for the Michigan Mountain Challenge next year.
