Updated! Finally got my THM bb from Germany, so fitted the M3 cranks with the silver chainrings from Sugino. All is well; I am really happy with it now, I really wanted to do a modern steel bike, with a mix of carbon and silver parts. Loosely inspired by the 10 speed era, when Campy were starting to roll out carbon parts but mixed with silver anodizing. (I went half black half silver on the Chris King headset.)
The GAMSHARA frame weights 1.72kg and is equivalent to a traditional 55.5cm frame. The fork is a Columbus Grammy.
The bottle cages are NITTO stainless, seat/post are DASH, stem and hubs are EXTRALITE.

Next step is to replace the THOMSON drop with something else w/no logos and a slightly more comfortable shape, and get rid of the blips, because I never use them. Also going to switch out the rear Ultegra brake with a matching eeBrake direct mount one.

And this one, is my good friend's NAGASAWA road bike, which I built up for him, after he had it custom made for him by Yoshiaki Nagasawa early this year.

Ritchey Road Logic in the blue colorway (with revised fork, modified geo/tire clearance and supposedly butting changes to the tubesets but that's probably marketing bs...)

^^ Saw that on LFGSS (I'm a grade A lurker), looks amazing, especially the paint colour :thumbup: .
I agree with @kgt, and add that a silver headset would look pretty good as well.

Very nice! What's the tire clearance like? The rubber looks massive!

@Marin Its tight, especially in the rear. The 28mm tires measures something between 27.5-27.8, thats the biggest the frame can handle. I think the r7000 brakes itself can handle 30mm tires though.
