Very nice, I was very tempted by the offers Westbrook had a few months back. If they had offered any crazy deals on a mechanical frame I would have got one.

New saddle - Fizik Arione R3 Braided & New tubular tires - Vittoria, what else and used Effetto Mariposa tape to bond them on the C24 wheelset and Mastik one on the C50 wheelset.- did a 90K ride today with the C24 and it works great - no hilly course though. And ordered myself a pair of matching shoes for this summer. Still thinking to get rid of the spacer and slam the stem :? will give me an extra 2cm drop ...but getting older will not make me more flexible :wink:

Made some changes :

From Ultegra 6770 with DA9000 crank ( Stages ) and DA9000 brakeset -> Sram Red eTap except DA 9000 Crankset with Stages. Almost 440 grams of weight loss in total - so I am the happy man. Cassette went from Ultegra 12-28 ( 257 gram ) -> EDCO 12-27 ( 174 gram ) and chain from DA7901 10 speed -> KMC X11SL. Still pictured with the DA9000 brakes but the Sram Red Aerolink brakes are mounted. Maybe a Quarq Red 172,5 / 110mm powermeter when I can find one for a good price.

Complete weight now must be around 6.7Kg with the C50 wheelset.

Lovely build, hopefully you'll get a Red crank also.

Bought and Ordered :

* Bought a pair of nearly new Campagnolo Bora one wheels - Shimano hub.
* Ordered a new 12-25 Shimano Dura Ace cassette.
* Ordered a New Quarq DZero Red powermeter - so the Dura Ace can go to the training bike ( hope it will arrive in October )

Tubular tires where on the wheels when I bought them - and they stay until I ride a flat or until spring, then my beloved Schwalbe One 24mm will be glued. Weight is with the Ultegra 11-28 cassette 6.65Kg so not race legal - with the new cassette it will be around 6.6Kg.

It cries for a Sram crankset IMO.

Smart looking bike! Does it ride as rough as the reports or are they over stated?

@ gumwalls25 - So can't I , but they are not available here yet ( hope within one month though )

@ ultyguy - thanks - bike is now for the fourth year with me and I still love her. First year I rode with C35/C50 wheels with 23mm Vittoria SC and that was a bit rough. The years after that I changed wheelsets and had the best experience with the Dura Ace C24 and Vittoria's 25mm as seen above ( plush ride ). This summer I rode in the Alps with the Dura Ace C50 with the Schwalbe One 24mm and that was second best, with the better looks. The 24mm Schwalbe one is my favorite to ride on 50mm wheels, they give enough comfort on 5.5 to 6 Bar and the cornering is great with them. The way they glue - the comfort - the durability and the looks of the 24mm Schwalbe one's is great ! So the Vittoria's on the Bora wheels are gone next spring or when I ride a flat. I need some training tubular tires for the winter days if I want to take this bike. Also have a Moozes Boreas winter/trainingbike and a Giant TCX Advanced SL Team cyclocross bike to take out.

So @ ultyguy - it is all in the wheel / tire choise if you want a rough ride or not. I also had a Scott Addict R1 2009/2010 and that bike was a lot harder - less forgiving - more a criterium bike. The Foil is better for longer rides in my opinion.

When does the quarq go on? I'm enjoying watching your foil getting pimped with SRAM Red. IMO it looks great!!

@ dmoneysworks: thanks - Bike has had a little diet since, Arundel Mandible has shaved off almost 40 grams and an almost slammed stem ( 5mm spacer ) gave me another 10 grams. Also ordered a black YBN SL chain to match the Quarq Red when it arrives.

As far I a can see in the future about the Quarq Red : I hope from the 7th of November ( ordered on the 1st of October )

...you've inspired me mate. I've pulled the trigger on an eTap mini-group yesterday to go onto my '12 OGE replica foil 40.

So I gotta ask are you going to be removing the steerer so you can drop top cap flush onto stem?
