Just snagged a pair of Bont Vaypor's size 42.5 on eBay for a steal of a deal! Shoe's are brand new, just tried on and didn't fit, got lucky I think :)

Have tried Bont in the past but I think I was always buying a size too small in that I had to mold really hard to get the toes enough room, figure for that price I might as well give them 1 more shot before giving up on them entirely :D
Looks like I made a new 90 Proof friend

3T Ionic Team Stealth will match up nicely with my Team Stealth cockpit and get rid of the Specialized Pave post that I just can't stand to look at on yet another bike.

You're probably right. I should stick to white Assos.

Patagonia Black Hole 60L
I needed a good bag to cover the short weekend riding trips and quick jaunts when I have to fly somewhere... after much, much research, I ended up with something lighter-than-most but by all accounts very durable and comfortable to wear on the back. I'm already thinking about the 90L version for an upcoming extended, multi-week riding trip.
Claimed weight is 1190g.

Got this Hylix handlebar from ebay. It seems to be the Ergonova copy.
42cm 185g as advertised.
I removed some graphics with acetone and put black film on, to cover the red area. The rest will be under bartape.

Just curious, are you putting together the 9070 piece by piece? I'm thinking of upgrading from 9000 to 9070 by picking up pieces from eBay. But its starting to seem that the upgrade cost in total is going to cost more than the 9000 groupset did in whole.

that makes sense considering the price of the di2 groupset is twice that of the mechanical groupset

It's more of a piece by piece upgrade. Got a fantastic deal on a Caad10 black inc with ultegra di2 and upgraded the front and rear mech. Moving over everything from previous build and going to sell the wheels, mechs and brakes, seatpost stem and bars to help fund it.
