April, March if I'm lucky.

In the mean time I'm trying to get better at XC skiing.

Sorry, camera kind of sucks. I would have taken it outside for a snow pic again but I feared if the ol lady saw me bring it outside she might try and make me leave it in the shed...So purple wall in the spare bedroom it is... I'll get some better shots this weekend.

Seat post can afford to lose a good 10cm and the fork will be cut when I get a new top cap. Other than lighter bar tape I'm quite happy with the rest of it.

Don't like green pedals.

Very nice ride you have there. I especially like the raw Caad10 frame. I once bought a raw System6, but unfortunately it had a crack in the down tube.

Nice job getting the bike under 6.8 kg. The only thing I would change are the green pedals and those brakes. Planet X brakes on a SRAM Red, Hollowgram SL bike? The bike deserves some KCNC, ZG or M5 brakes.

with the vittoria diamante tires and the CA5.0s the total is 6984g

I have to admit the pedals were a horrible choice...But I do love that green so I'm ok with it. I'll try these brakes out for a bit and maybe just get sram red brakes. I kind of hate the set up of the Px's already and I can live with the extra grams from the red brakes. We'll see

Maybe try some ti axles for the pedals. If you end up liking the function of the zero's the ti axles will be lighter and also look better than the black cro-moly ones.

Like the bike very much. I am planning on buying this frame, but it is not available in the Netherlands. I'd like to build it up with Ultegra/Dura Ace, so only the frame is important for me. Do you guys have any idea where I can buy this bike?
