After five years on an Isaac Boson disc (my first road bike, after 25 years on a mountainbike) I purchased this frame last November. I was waiting for the introduction of the new Dura Ace groupset and perhaps a discount on the current R9170 groupset. We all know what happened and many introduction dates seems to be postponed. So I received the last parts this week and started building:

I will post a build sheet and some decent pictures (non-Iphone) when I am all done. Needs to be cleaned aswell greasy fingerprints all over. Still need to decide on stem/handlebar height and cut the steerer.

Here is the build sheet. I was aiming for sub 6.8 kg and barely managed. However, I preferred the deeper section wheels and the integrated bars above a lighter setup. There is some room for improvement if I install the aircap expander, use my Tune Wassertragers bottle cages and I would like to change the saddle for a Berk Lupina. I am also waiting on a solution by Berk for the seatpost clamp. I am not sure I will install the aircap expander as I do not like the looks of it.

Thanks, it changes from dark green to a goldish colour. Hard to capture on a photo.

Shoot it back lit to show the transition. I've seen this color in person and its stunning.

I like the tan walls with this bike also!
Looking forward to a wheel review when you get some miles on them.
