Bought this frame a few months ago, initially to sell on, but then as its my size and I have time on my hands, I thought I would build it up as a change to the Parlee for this year.....
The frame is nicely finished, it seems like similar construction and carbon to a Cervelo R3SL fame I had, but the forks are especially nice, a bit on the heavy side (which is a shame) but they do feel very solid and I really like the way inside the steerer is threaded, so there is no expander bung, just a large diameter ‘bolt’ that screws into the forks and then the cap screws into this bolt.
I have yet to buy a few parts but here’s a starter to ‘whet your whistles’….

I also think its good to see the actual items 'close up' and weights on scales for others who are considering the same components. Especially if there are any manufacturer changes between years but the manufacturer calls them by the same name if you know what i mean?

Nismosr - Thanks but I am happy to keep these rings they shift nice. I have actually got a set of 10 speed rings also, on a 'failed' vuma - as soon as the levers brake it will be 11 speed (however the levers I am sure will out last the rings)!!
Stolichnaya - Yeah thanks - edited. Dont know where i got precision from?!
