Will likely switch out the seatpost for a zero setback post (probably New Ultimate) and change out bar tape and tires to match a bit better. Also plan to move the Di2 battery into the seat tube when I have time to monkey with that mod. Current battery placement is under the left chainstay.
Felt F1 frame (54cm) -- 845g (w/o seatpost collar or cage bolts)
Easton EC90 tapered fork
FSA K-Force Light BB30 cranks (110 BCD, 52/36 chainrings)
Speedplay Zero Stainless pedals
Shimano Di2 shifters, F&R derailleurs (internally routed)
Shimano Dura Ace chain
Shimano Dura Ace cassette (12-25)
Control Tech Carbon Comp bars
Ritchey WCS Carbon stem (110mm)
Planet X Ti brakeset
Omni Racer seatpost (27.2)
Prologo Scratch Nack Carbon Saddle
Reynolds MV32T wheels
Veloflex Roubaix tires (holdover from winter)
Total weight as pictured: 13.5 lbs
Switched out a few items, put on my clinchers and climbing cassette (12-28) and freshened up the bar tape. Now she's in more of an "everyday riding" setup, but also wee bit porkier at 14.2 lbs as pictured in the new photos.
Reynolds MV32 clinchers
SRAM PG-1070 cassette (12-28)
BlackOps Ti Road QR Skewers
Deda RS tires
Specialized Romin Carbon Saddle
BlackOps 27.2x400mm seatpost (zero setback)
Lizard Skins DSP 2.5 bar tape

This one looks amazing! Although, I would have loved to see black Speedplays instead of red and white handlebar tape to match the saddle.

The bars are 42cm and the drop is pretty normal (120mm) -- I think the camera angle and shadows make it look like a deeper drop than it is. Spacers are to match my measurements from my R3, as the stack height on the F1 is a full 22mm shorter than the R3. Will be removing spacers gradually to get myself into a lower position on the F1 over time.

Wasn't sure whether I would ever get the frame (they are pretty hard to come by), but things worked out and a 54cm miraculously became available (thanks to Bob T, SuperDave or whomever else may have helped out).
Nice looking bike, I've got almost nothing to do with how great they look, that's our creative department's job. Bob T. is the man along with a small cast of amazingly talented people. Our engineers get the accolades for the ride quality that maintains that ultra stiff HT and BB. I typically just pick a few parts to put on the frames to make bikes, but I see you've tackled that job quite nicely on your own.
Enjoy the ride,
