The frame arrives today but I won't be able to pick it up until tomorrow. Even worse news is that I won't be able to build it until I get back from vacation at the end of next week.

Delayed building your bike by vacation? Are you really complaining?

Actually the vacation is delaying the building of 2 bikes. This and a CAAD 9 I've been working on in secret. Only half serious about the complaint because it would have been nice to have gotten the frame earlier so I could have built it up to take it with me. Ohh well I will be nice and relaxed when I get back so I can enjoy the builds.

Sorry for the crappy pic, but even good pictures of this frame do it justice. This thing is wild in person.

One of only a few changes from the blue build. Kogel Ceramic bottom bracket. The other being the bar tape. I am currently on holiday so won't be able to work on it for another week. It should be done by next Sunday though.

Way ahead of you KWalker. The colors match perfectly so I got a fresh roll ready to go on. Was thinking about asking Jure Berk if he could do a custom covered Lupina saddle with perforations with the various colors underneath. Would be a nice subtle touch to match the tape.

Busyman could be an option if Berk doesent think he could do what I'm looking for. But then I'm looking at probably $400+ pretty easily after I buy another saddle from Jure and then have it covered by Busyman. That would look dope though.

Sagan edition has 6806 bearings in a Specialized OSBB shell, which is BB30 by any other name. Currently using this to do the same job on my CAAD10, no reason it wouldn't work in your case.

Awesome, almost missed your reply. The adapter you're linking to doesn't work for me as I have it here. Apparently because the width of the BB on the Sagan Ed is 61mm instead of 68mm. I fixed it with a BB30 to BB386EVO from Cema Bearings.
