Hello. Long time lurker, first time poster. Thought I would share my recent work. Not as ardent as many examples on this forum, but not too shabby either. Was 7.9kg, is 7.0kg. I could easily lose 100 grams by ditching the stainless cages. I believe the vernacular would call them boat anchors. But atmo, there are no good looking carbon cages. I also noticed you gentlemen, ladies, enjoy a build list.

Frame – Cinelli XCR (stainless)
Fork – Columbus
Group – Campagnolo Super Record (titanium)
Wheels – Miche Supertype 358 RS
Tires – Veloflex Roubaix
Pedals - Speedpaly Zero (titanium)
Bars – Cinelli Neo (aluminum)
Stem – Cinelli Neo (aluminum)
Tape – Cinelli Gel
Seatpost – Thomsom Masterpiece
Seat – Selle San Marco Zoncolan Carbon FX
Cages – Nitto R (stainless)
Computer – Cateye Wireless

Classy bike!

The Thomson seatpost doesn't work for me, needs to be (color) matched with the stem IMO.

...and the brakepad holders are mounted the wrong way...
