Just spotted this sub forum ;)

Didn't set out to build the lightest possible - just for once in my bike life I wanted to do a build where I bought exactly the spec I wanted - no upgrades required - or lusted after!

Felt F1 2013:

Size: 58cm

Wheels: Wheelsmith Race38 T23 http://www.wheelsmith.co.uk/race38-t23

Groupset: Shimano Dura Ace 9000

Bars: 3T Ergosum Pro 44cm

Stem: 3T ARX Stealth 100mm 6 degree

Seatpost: 3T Ionic 25 Stealth

Saddle: Fizik Antares Versus

Bar Tape: Specialized Roubaix

Tyres: Schwalbe One tubular 24mm

Weight: 14.86lbs/6.74kg with pedals and Garmin mount but no bottle cage.

Notes: Don't want to go carbon bars or stem. Going to see how my back holds out this year before I slam the stem :)

Gorgeous bike, love the simplicity. Everything is just classy :) What do you envision using this for, are you racing or is this more of a cruiser? Regardless, impeccable choice in components, hope you enjoy it for many years.

Thanks Stefano :) Even though I wanted to treat myself to nice bits I was conscious of keeping it straight and simple, nothing too fussy.

Will be used for racing and club bunched training rides. My Felt F5 (Ultegra and Fulcrum R3 Wheels) was a fantastic bike, so hoping this with the same geometry but high grade carbon and upped spec will be even nicer :)

Sweet - nice to see a Felt once in while.

How are those Schwalbe Ones? I'm a bit of a fan of the brand, but have yet to hear any ride reports.
