I've been lurking for a while before my first post.
Here's my Wave Emotion. I've managed to get it just how I've always wanted it over the last few weeks. Weighed it today with a cheap set of scales and it came to just under 6kg (5.7 on the dodgy scales), or around the 13lb mark which I guess tallies with the 900g frame weight, but I'm taking it with a pinch of salt until I use more accurate means. It included cages, pedals and computer so not too shabby.
I hope you all like it as much as I do although I know some people don't like the naked carbon look. There aren't too many of these around here, well certainly another here in England that I've seen.
It rides like dream (my dream anyway). It’s very direct/stiff with great power transfer and climbs like a mountain goat. (I will take a few pictures of my Di2 equipped TT bike and get it on here soon hopefully.)

That is one nice looking ride, BTW.

And you can call me Macktastik Honey Pete Kicks, thank you.
The Adamo saddle is a love it / hate it thing. Personally I love it and have them on all of my bikes. Although your sit bones take a couple of rides to get used to it, you never get chaffage again, which means no more saddle sores ever. It's particularly good to have on a TT bike, especially long distance races, as it lets you get a long way forward on the saddle ('on the rivet') without it becoming uncomfortable.
