Berd says only white is available at the moment. Who knows, maybe Godzuki26 will be the first person to dye these spokes :lol:

Those spokes look very interesting. Lighter than the Pillar Xtra-Lite Ti spokes. I sent an email to get pricing. Something about them look very scary. Not a lot of info on user experience on the web.

For this build I would choose flat spokes. More aero.

100% agree - they might be very light but it looks terrible :(

Can you clean those spokes ? I just thought about this . They look like they will get dirty real quick and impossible to get clean again . Dyed black if possible ?. I’m rethinking my early enthusiasm for those spokes .

@Jenmoss - If this is gonna be the "Purple Prince" bike, I will need some more purple. After the first coat of clear, it doesn't look too bad. Once I get about 5 to 10 good coats on there, I think the levers will look much nicer. I think it will still be stealth enough for my taste.

That looks really good. Going on your track record this is going to be very stylish. I’m a huge purple fan so I’m down with this :thumbup:

I finished one of the levers. This was the first time taking apart an Etap lever so I left the other side intact so I had something to reference to put the reworked lever back together. Getting the little spring that pulls the lever back was the most challenging part for me. I like how the lever turned out. The part matte/part gloss of the original lever didn't work for me. I can now start the other side and get this bike finished finally.

I cannot report on the performance factor, but on the cool factor this enormous carbon 3K cage with gigantic 3K pulleys look cool as F##k.
