Can I ask the reason for the DA cassette over Sram. As your running etap I thought Sram would be the choice especially as it's lighter to.

The sram is lighter, but it is loud and I hate that. The DA cassette is much more quiet. Plus I got it brand new for free, so no complaints there :D

A really cool selection of components you got there. Really interesting to see the final weight.

Thanks! Yup, using two soft light hot box's that were pointed up at the cieling to reflect softer light. Black backdrop and hung the crankset on fishing line from a metal clothes rack. Photoshopped line out in Post.

Shot on Canon 80D with 70-300 telephoto (216mm) F5.6/No flash/ISO 400 and 1/2s. I use a timer remote to eliminate camera shake. :beerchug:
