Is the front derailleur work fine with carbon fibrelyte chainring ?
So far yes. Limits had to be adjusted but once adjusted, so far so good. The chainrings come with a note suggesting light pedal during shifts which is something I believe we should all do all the time anyway.

looks great. the fibrelytes are not the best for shifting though.

99% of my riding is in the big ring so this is not really a concern for me but I wouldn’t use these if I were a frequent 2x user or hard on my equipment.

I was wondering how tall are you? I'm just under 6'1(184cm) and on the border between 56 and 58, the only thing is with the 58's headtube I think I would need slam my stem and probably get a -17 stem otherwise it looks a better fit?

181cm. I would guess at 6’1” you’d be a 58.

Thank you, I was going to go with the 58 but wasn't really sure because of the higher head tube. Currently my ridley helium is a med and is a little tight making me run a 25mm setback post with the seat all the way back and 130-140mm stem, probably should be on a large but the headtube on that was 2.5 cm taller then the focus.

Is there any chance for you to try out different frames?

After looking at the geo a little more I decided to order the smaller size it should fit me better, hopefully it comes before the weekend if fedex tracking is right. I probably could have made the 58 work but I would have needed a very negative stem to get the position I need. It comes with a 2.5cm setback post and 120mm stem but I have a spare 130mm to see what works better before I order a new one. I wish I could try out the sizes but no one has them in stock anywhere close.

Based on what others have said recently, sounds like you made a good call.

Did you get a chance to weigh the frame/fork?
I'm curious on how much the black frames weigh.. I just swopped one of the WHITE frame and forks. 833g Frame / 300 +/-g Fork (Remembering off top of my head).

I want to sand it down but I love the clean white look of the frame/fork combo. My build group is pretty much identical to your build (FSE, THM, Fiberlyte, SR11 Mechanical, etc).

My frame is 740grams without BB, seatpost clamp, or headset but with the derailleur hanger. The fork was 330grams uncut and 290grams cut. White does look quite elegant.

Sand it down?! I think that frame looks awesome as is and will look even better with Campy all over it. I’d leave it just like it is. Love white frames.

I agree! The white ones look so super clean and SR11 is going to look sexy on the build.
I almost went with SRAM Red22 Mechanical, purely to save weight. Campy hoods have been heaven sent for my hands.
