I received my FB in early July. Built it up and was able to do a few ride before having to spend 3 months overseas for work. I was a little nervous about the braking but it is solid. The bike is stiff but not harsh. Tracks beautifully. I have a pic in the Introduction page. Can't wait to get home and get the Enve wheelset built up and put on it.

Which color scheme did you get?

I have the LOTTO team colours, the only other colour avail is solid white.
I want to build it up with Campag EPS , my Helium runs super record 11 and I love that, and the Noah will be mainly for crits.

There are not many options here in Aust when it comes to frame colours and even harder to get the set up you want so it becomes easier to build it.

I got a call from the shop last night to say there is now a 3-4 week wait on my frame ... it is like pulling teeth!

ENVE gear hmmm nice , the freight to Perth from Euro of US kills it. But I must say it is true porn you have there :thumbup:

Sounds like a great build. I'm looking forward to seeing it finished.

I haven't seen the all white frame in a FB, only the standard frame. The normal FB here in the US is the black/yellow scheme. I actually ordered my frame from Australia to get the Lotto paint job.

Trying to decide which Enve wheelset to go with. Also plan to remove the logos on the stem and handle bar. May go white saddle and tape, haven't decided yet.
