After lurking here for a long time, and gaining valuable inspiration from member's rides, I've finally finished my own bike and humbly submit it.

2014 Lynskey Sportive, built with a green/white theme.

She's called Eva, as in Eva Green (see what I did there :lol: )

Build List:

Frame: 2014 Lynskey Sportive, size M
Fork: Enve Road 2.0 43mm rake
Groupset: SRAM Force 22 (RD is Red 22 WiFLi)
Crank: Power2 Max type S FSA Gossamer 386 Evo 52/36
Wheels: Fulcrum Racing 5 (upgrade planned)
Headset: Tune BiBo
Cage: King Ti Cage
Tuning bits: Tune tuning parts such as crank bolts, bottle cage bolts
Cables: Jagwire Elite sealed cable kit, with green tuning bits
Handlebar: Ritchey Evocurve 40mm
Stem: ITM Alcor 80 Aluminium
Seatpost: Ritchey Comp Aluminium
Seatpost collar: Salsa
Saddle: Specialized Toupe 143mm
Pedals: Shimano SPD-SL
Weight (with pedals, cage, garmin mount): 8.85kgs

The bike was built to a budget, with an eye on upgrades in the near-future. I hope to bring her to sub-7 kg eventually

"Eva" sitting on the green lawn :-) very appropriate!

Well done on a good job done!

I have exactly the same bike, same size too but with a Columbus Fork & running Campagnolo.
Nice as it is, but the shamrock on the chain/seat stays are a bugger to clean!

Enjoy

Cheers
