In my opinion, no bike should be let completely "clean". Product name should be displayed at the downtube, and a logo on the headtube. Nothing more than that.

Today I got in touch with a really fast graphic designer. My stickers are ready, and Im picking them up first thing in the morning. So tomorrow is booked for one last paint job, and building up the bike 100%.

Not yet. Have been a lot of offers, but not anything satisfying yet.
Update on the Canyon, is that it got it's stickers today, and the final layer of clearcoat. Assembling most of it tonight, but I'm missing cables and saddle, which I will have by tomorrow morning.

This is the best I can do at the moment. I just mounted the groupset, and will get it done tomorrow.

Done... sort of.
I would have preffered a pic with the Lightweight, but you guys have to settle for this, for now.

Fork: Onefour SLX 1 1/4 "Candy Red"
Handlebar: Ritchey WCS classic Custom wet black paint
Stem: Syntace F149 1 1/4 custom wet black paint
Across fittings system. (Will be replaced with FSA Override 2)
Seatpost FSA K-force, white sticker removed, clearcoat finish

Rearshifter: Campagnolo Super Record with BBB pulleywheels. (Campagnolo's own roll like s***)
Frontshifter: Campagnolo Super Record
Crankset: Campagnolo Record, with Record stickers removed, followed by clearcoat finish
Chain: KMC X11 SL silver
Casette: Shimano Ultegra 11 speed 11-23 Modified for 10 speed body

Tires: Challenge Strada 25 mm
Wheelset: Shimano Dura Ace WH7800 C24 Tubular Custom blackpainted hubs
Weight: Roughly 6,9 kg

When looking at this bike now, I feel a bit dissappointed. I'm sure the bike itself, would look better with black bartape and saddle, but as I'm riding with white helmet and shoes, I think the overall setup is better. And I'm not sure about the tanned sidewalls at the moment. I will post a pic with Lightweight and black Veloflex Carbons, as soon as I get the wheels back. I think that would be alot better.
And yeah, I do realise that this thing is a complete copy, of a special Parlee on this forum. ;)

You state that you've modified an Ultegra 11s cassette. How exactly?
I'm still running a 24mm version of the Strada in the front on my Al wheelset. I hope yours hold up a bit better than the couple I've gone through. Nice look, though. I also have the 7850 version of the C24s, by the way.

Use a dremel or what else you can find, and remove between 1 and 2 mm of material from the back of the cassette.

Thanks. I guess it's a lower-risk undertaking to dremel the cassette instead of the freehub body. Interesting nonetheless, or exactly for that reason.

This is nice-but probably, black sidewalls and saddle/bartape would look better.
regards,

The best thing about this bike is that it stands up by itself ;)

And that lovely paint finish, of course.
