##Update on Page 4##

Just completed my latest project- a lightweight "everyday" road bike. The focus was to build a light, fast and reliable bike I could use both in the mountains and on the flats. I'm stoked with the bike- shifting, handling and weight are on plan (6.1kg on 1,400g clinchers) however will be adding a set of climbing tubs (extralite laced to enve 2.2) and brakes (ee's of course) in the near future.

Keen to hear your thoughts and upgrade recommendations!

Very nice, good choice in ring/crank :wink:

I like the paint job. Can still tell it's a NP, but it's subdued nicely.

Bar and shifter angles are way off. Skunkworks is mega salty about me and my friend mentioning that.

What do you except mate?? My Insta account is not a public forum for dumb inane comments from fixie kids with no idea what they are talking about.. You wana mount your hoods half way down the bend on modern ergo bars like its 1990 good on ya.. Also what the hell is up with your Campag hoods pointed in as such an angle..? This like most of the bikes I build are professionaly fitted. If you wana go around making stupid statements keep it here ( unfortually what this place has turned into ) :noidea:

I thought seamless transition was a good thing with 9000/R785 series shifters on that style of bar.. Exactly how I run my everyday bike setup. Crit bike has aggresive angles because of the ergo bars but thats also good for its intended use.

Either way this thing came out super nice, hopefully today wasn't too bad tho clean that damn chain ;) It may also be the factory lube inside the rollers causing the gunk, this will become less frequent as you more or less wash it out with fresh stuff.
