Tonights project
Any second thoughts about sanding off grip areas? After some considration, I decided against that on my Ergonovas and only went for regular paint. My new Darimo handlebar doesn't have those though, so it might not really matter with a scoop of CF grip paste.

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
I have these brakes here but not sure if they are worth using..... Planet X CNC ..... would drop 100+ grams if I do

Just swap the brake pad holders with kcnc ones. Campy dual/single brakes with those pad holders weigh around 233g and the Campy brakes have arguably the best brake feel, even over 9100. Planet X brakes are fine but not quite in the same league as the rest of the spec on your build.

Spot on. There's weight, and then there's bikes like this where its about the feel and experience. I've used those brakes and they work, but they're not a luxury performance item like DA, Campy SR, THM etc. I'm currently building an Ottrott (similar ti carbon mix but older and therefore heavier) with ee's simply because I had them-if I hadn't I would have likely gone with SR.

Whats the weight of the kcnc brake pad holders with bolts and washers?

The brake pad holders off these Planet X are 27 grams with bolts and washers.

Thanks all for the kind comments.

Got some KCNC pad holders for $50 with pads that should fetch $20 or so.

I'd just use the Planet X holders. That's how I've got my wife's Campy brakes setup. I think the PX holders are within like a gram or two of my EE holders.

Some of you may not understand but one thing I dont like about this frame is the 31.6 seat tube with the 27.2 seat post, it just looks off to me. It would look much better if they cotinued the flow of the 31.6 seat tube with a 31.6 seat post.

So thats what I did, I added a 31.6 seat post by sliding it over the top of a peice of a 27.2 seat post tube.

It looks better in my mind but I still need to ride it and see how it feels.

duuuuude...

Even on a forum where everything is vain, that may take the cake. The 31.6 post is just sitting atop the clamp? You're going to get a TON of vibration coming through to the saddle.

The 27.2 you had installed looks absolutely fine.
