Needs to lose the Cervélo chainset - very cool otherwise though!

Is that a custom paint scheme your friend did? Or did Specialized do a limited run of that paint scheme? I don't remember seeing that before.

In my opinion the cockpit looks a little off with the spacers/come spacers, -17 stem and then the kink in the Specialized top tube. Not something that I personally think looks good but can appreciate the build. I think it would look better with a 0/-3 stem slammed all the way down.

54cm black is about ~1200gr

This particular one is about ~1300gr....I guess the paint is heavy.

The fork uncut is ~400gr.

That's a 2014 factory color. The Race frame now comes in a black or this one.
