It’s taken a while but it’s finally arrived. Just need to sort cables, dial position, put the white tape on and hopefully the new zipp 202’s will arrive this week and I can put the gum wall tubs on.

It’s built with 853 super oversize pro tubing with ENVE forks.

Since being a junior I’ve always wanted a Rourke but never got round to it and I always loved the Raleigh Panasonic colours so kind of a two birds one stone type of thing!

I’ve stripped my Canyon Ultimate down and put the Record stuff on here.

I’ve not weighed anything if I’m honest as I haven’t the scales to do so but once built I’ll weigh it at the LBS. Image

Cheers! The blue looks a little dark on that pic but overall I'm really pleased with the paintwork. I've already got the Bora's pictured plus the Ultra's. I recently sold a pair of Lightweights and ordered some Zipp 202's.

Looking forward to seeing it with the 202’s and tan walls on, that should make it pop a little more.

Not the most reliable I assume but I used a suitcase weigher + strap contraption at home and with the Bora One's it was 7.98. It should be a fair bit less with the Zipp 202's which arrive next week. Nothing lightweight on this build. I've not had chance to ride it yet but really looking forward to it.
