Build list:

Soloist Team Alu frame (size 56)
Carbon Wolf CL fork
Cervelo carbon aero seatpost
Ultegra 6600 everything (10spd, 53/39, 12-26 cassette)
Rolf Vigor RS wheelset (Ti skewers)
Fizik Arione Ti saddle
Speedplay Zero (cro-mo's)
Michelin Pro2race something or others
Michelin A1 latex tubes
Oval concepts R700 stem & R700 handlebars
Cateye double wireless computer w/ cadence
Cinelli cork bar tape (double wrapped due to broken wrist :) )
Tacx bottle cages
and a fancy pesonalized carbon headset spacer... Ale Vested Omen (anagram of my full name)

edit: no clue what the weight is as I don't have a scale other than my cheap bathroom one... I'm guessing around 16lbs.


drool i am thinking of getting a soloist with that exact setup except look keo carbon/cromo's, 3t THE bar and stem, Veloflex tyres, supasonic tubes. How does it ride?

I built it 3 months ago, got 5 test miles in, then proceeded to drive an ATV off a sand dune landing me in the hospital for 3 days (1 plate, 3 screws, 6 pins in my wrist)... I was just cleared to ride again 1 1/2 weeks ago but I've got about 120 miles in in that time back. Tomorrow will be the first day with the new wheelset... i had cheap ritchey's on it before and it rode awesome... so I can only expect it to be even sweeter now.

The carbon seatpost made a very noticeable difference. I would skip the Alu one right off the bat when you get it.. just dish out the extra cash for the carbon one.

The bike is very quick... immediate power transfer to the rear wheel.. makes me want to stand and mash all the time. The long drop (saddle to bars) is more comfortable than I thought it would be, but we'll see once I'm back up to riding centuries. So far my longest ride back was 30 miles and I had no problems at all and felt like I could have done another 30 effortlessly. It's very agile and controls well. I haven't done any climbing or decents yet due to the busted wrist, so the jury is still out on that... although I suspect it will perform very well.
