Looks like it could be a beauty. Definitely need to take some good pics of it.

That's a really good weight for a 4 series, how about a build list and some better pictures. It looks like a really nice build with a neat black and white theme from the very dark pic.
My size 60 2014 Madone 5.9 is sitting at about 7.35kg with Zipp 404 clinchers (2008 vintage) and 2010 SRAM Red (new SRAM Red on my Parlee)
I should get it to 6.5kg with Edge 1.38's, a Red cassette(currently have a Force 1070) and ilink cables.

Your bike looks really cool. But my god man, you need a better camera! Take the bike out in the sun with nothing behind the bike. Think you did a good black/white job. So it would be really cool to see some great pictures.

Great work, especially considering how heavy those 4-series frames are. As stated above, please post some better photos.

That is a great weight for a 4 series, and a very nice looking build. Love the way all the black and white parts have tied in.

Wow, that is a great weight for a bike of it's class!

Please post is here: viewforum.php?f=118

That bike deserves to stand out in it's own spot.
