Nice build! Which handlebars do you use ? Are you happy so far with the chinese seatpost ?
The curent bars on the bike are Easton EC90 SLX3 at 210g, I forgot to get a photo of, yes Im a WW rookie.

The chinese seatpost is nothing special, I had it and it works so I used it for now.

That frame is pretty close to perfection. Definitely give it a proper photo shoot!
Yes is a very cool frame but I lack the skills to give it a proper photo shoot.

The carbon weave sure is interesting to look at, it changes constantly depending on the lighting.

Look at the top tube compared to the down tube in just these 2 photos ......

I’m a bit biased on this point, but you will love this bike. I know I love mine. How do you like it with the Bora’s? I have Lightweights on mine, but have toyed with the idea of getting a set of Boras.

What width are these? This seems like the lightest weight I've come across for Ergonova LTD.

Just curious as to why the Chitmano DA cassette instead of the Campy one. Also, could swap the brakes for eebrakes and drop
Some weight there. Lighter inners and putter cables would help too

Clean build. Maybe a few more, angled close ups?

Really would like to see the build from diff angles.

I bet it rides very nice as well.

They are 38s, Im thinking of striping then down to see how light they might get, but it a bit of a shame as they look new.
