There's a shallower headset spacer if you want to drop the front by a few mms by the way.

Dude have you not seen Record 10 speed on a ~2008 R3? It's surely a match made in heaven.
As strange as it sounds i was sceptical of the benefits of a bike like this coming from racing other disciplines of cycling. To say i was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. Cycling around with a big grin on your face does not help keep the bugs out of your teeth.
It weighs in at roughly 14.4 pounds and the size is a 50s. Sorry for neglecting that on the first post. I'm sure there would be more weight to be shaved off but for now I'm enjoying riding it to much after the long process of building and sourcing parts.
I like the suggestion regarding 202's maybe a set of those for climbing duties. I'm torn whether to go for those or a set of Mavic Rsys Slr tubulars. But to be honest it climbs remarkably well as it is. Can you collectively recommend me anything?

Those New C24's that sky and others used on the tour this year look excellent thats some serious rent money for those though. That being said weighing the best part of 64 kilos soaked through I'm not sure i need to go any lighter. If I'm honest id totally forgotten about Shimano in the quest for wheels.
