My minimum groupset, budget-wise, has to be the last years ultegra Di2 at £999 from Merlin.
This is very similar looking to my intended build - http://i.imgur.com/K4X5XN4.jpg"
So far I've specced out:
Frame EMX 525 - 1840g - their quoted weight for frame, forks, seat post and headset - no proof found yet?
Ultegra Di2 - £999 (Merlin just dropped their price again!) 2619.3g (from WW here)
Wheels - Cero Ar30 (£349 -1395g quoted?)
Bars, stem, saddle and pedals TBC but I'm aiming at about 7.4/5kgs total
these are the wheels -

Click the pictures and read through until the CERO AR30 wheels.... reviewed in proper below -

I'm never about brands, but I want confidence in the build - but budget too - I've spent it all on the frame!
The above reviews give me confidence but I want to be sure -
SO - is anyone riding or have they tried the cero ar30's?
Any tried and tested lite 28-40mm aero wheels in the same price range?
Also has anyone else built up an EMX 525 - what did you build on this *clearly* non-weenie frame?
Many thanks in advance guys
I've broken a spoke on those bad boys and the wheel was still true, and I was able to ride the remainder of the 3 hour trainingride, just by bending the broken spoke.
I think weight is 1650 g. and price around 200€.

I'm more interested in anyone with experience of the wheels I've listed (Cero AR30) because of their WEIGHT (1395g - £349) and price.Given their *excellent* review I wanted to know if anyone else was using them?
This is why I wondered if anyone had any experience with them?
Also I'm interested in any other EMX 525 builds as they seem to be pretty sparse - its a top frame and I want to make it work on a budget - I wondered how people had done it without ridiculously deep pockets.
