This is the "Build Of The Year", hands down! If you are trying to match the wheels to the frame I suggest the 2009 Reynolds DV3K T. They have a super nice high gloss 3k weave that would match the frame just perfect. The 09 was built on DT240 hubs and with DT aerolite spokes. They were 1320g. Sure you can build lighter 46mm sets, matching the finish with no decals (at least 20g) would look really nice.

Just curious, with all this naked carbon going on, will you have any colour highlights, or is everything going to be naked carbon and black?

I can't help but think a very thin outline Time logo with some subtle pin stripes in your choice of colour on the frame/fork, along with a few select details (cables, bolts, etc) in your colour would just set it off "just so". Heck... do the logo and pinstripes in chrome. Very classy.

Dang, this build just keeps on getting better with all of that super-light AX and Schmolke gear, plus the thumb shifters!

coloclimber, I've been watching this build everyday now and finally created an account so I could congratulate you on such an awesome build!

I was wondering what you're going to do about the finish of the bike so that it doesn't retain that "sanded" hazyness...
I did the same type of thing to a carbon seat post, and found that applying "mink oil" made the weave shine true and really brought out the sexuality of its chocolate...if you know what I mean.

I've just read the entire thread again and it's quite amazing. I'm wondering if you'll be using a clear coat on that sanded frame of yours or using some kind of wax. :thumbup:

Battery lasts ages, can't see that being an issue.
