I finally pulled the trigger and decided to build one of these up. I saw a few guys on here and their setup look pretty Bada$$. Frame wont be in until mid april so I have a little time to iron out the final build. I have a super comfy Cervelo RS running SRAM Red on Zipp 101's so I am looking for something a little stiffer to change things up from time to time. Once I get back in shape I was thinking of racing in a few crits from time to time. Here is what I was thinking I would love your feedback.

Are you looking to go weight-weenie with it? If so, I'd get these brakes:

Half the price, maybe half the weight.

The seatpost and stem seem like crazy money in this age.

EDIT.... send me the link to a Garmin for $80!
