Really nice!

A very well composed build. Both in style and level on components.

Very classy build!! For your 80gr : try to find a Red22 GPX crankset (why not with praxis rings??), and problem solved :wink: And you keep the complete Sram drivetrain. Or get a rotor 3d+ with Praxis rings

That silver is nice, didn't like it at first but its really grown on me.

You could drop about 80g with some Planet X CNC brakes, about $100 for around 200g, which is about 80g less than the force brakes.

Very nice!!! Great build.

Indeed, could easily drop 80g with those planet-x CNC brake calipers and a Ritchey seatpost + stem.

A warning about the Planet X brakes though.
I had planned to move them from my old bike and use them on my new build, but they couldn't handle the width of the Reynolds Assault.
They would work fine with your current wheels, but if you plan any upgrades in the future..
My PX brakes are 3-4 years old so if someone know if they have updated the design, please correct me.

Great looking build! Everything pulls together nicely, the grey graphics of the force and the DT Swiss wheel graphics. Bitchen!

Hi all

Thank you for you nice comments. I will see if I can find a used crankset and/or a set of lightweight brakes.

The obvious choice would be the crankset and thereby also achieve the benefit from the additional stiffness.

I have always been a fan of the Cannondale SISL2 Hollowgram Spider Rings Road Crankset.

Any comments/thoughts/inputs regarding this crankset on my Cervélo?

I have just read this http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=124809 post.

Cervélo + Cannondale SISL2 Hollowgram Spider Rings Road Crankset is unfortunatally not a match :|

Unfortunately that's the problem with the bottom bracket "standards" of today. You could go with a SRAM Red Exogram crank instead. I think they are just as light or very close if you change out the chainrings to a lighter alternative. They can also be found for much less money.

Nice build.

What happened to your fork? Looks like some paint chipped.
