You're going all out - I love it.

Doesn't look like much off the old bike is getting transferred over.

Is that a 120mm stem?

You got a sick ride there, but please replace those bolts. :wink:

Great bike. Bolts need to go. Either stainless bolts holding your stem together or stainless bolts holding your bones together. (Stem bolts will be lighter.)

I'm building up something eerily similar. Must be killing you to wait for that BB - I know it's killing me since I ordered the same thing from Starbike more than a month now! Did you get any word on ETA?

The last time I emailed them was thanksgiving and was told they were getting a batch beginning of last week, but I haven't heard from them at all last week. I ordered 2 BB one for this build and the S5 is getting the proper BB this time. I've been using a 9mm carbon spacers on the S5 with the stock sram press fit bearings to work with the M3 Cranks with no problems.

Looks good -- since you used the MCFK expander (in lieu of the starnut), were you able to fit the aluminum insert that's supposed to be glued inside the steerer tube for added strength?
