Damn thought I'd got away scoff free from weight haha I am currently waiting for the scale to arrive in the mail, but off the scales in the bathroom (measuring to the nearest half kilo) it looks around 6.5, but they are by no means accurate scales. Will get back with proper weight soon.

Not a great photo, but an idea of it with the 404s. Since the new ee brakes are out, looks like those are on the list. Any recommendations for segmented housing? At the moment leaning towards Alligator iLinks or minis

Just built one myself and I'm wondering how you get on with the saddle. I usually ride a Selle Italia SLR and the toupe looks similar.

Nice bike, but one size too small frame.

With the right bib shorts the saddle is fine. I got caught out the other day though racing in a brand new pair of club shorts which left be a little sore for the days following!

Getting a fit for this upcoming southern hemisphere season, think I will move to a longer stem (extralite) as I will be switching to bars with less reach, maybe a 120 or 130 although I've heard the longer Extralites lack stiffness

Thinking of saying goodbye to this old mate and grabbing a Canyon Aeroad CF SLX in Team Kat. Thoughts?

Would probably sell the Mavic's and use the LW/404/Ksyrium SLE's.

Also, what would you value this module (everything but the wheels) at?
