Moller, what spec is your bike? Interested in knowing as I’m looking to build mine as a replacement for my Lapierre carbon. Any recommendations and help really appreciated.

That raw/stealth look is just boring and all the frames look the same without decals. You can not see if it is a Litespeed or a cheap Chinese knockoff Image
Just a question of taste ... not everyone needs to show off :lol:

Having said that, the "stickered" Litespeed are really splendid indeed ...

The vortex build begins, decided on the stealth look for now. Full Ultegra 6800, as its being built as my winter bike. So nice to work on, buffed and then used Autoglym wax. It’s come out ok, waiting for a Cranksets and a set of shifters. The steerer tube will be cut down to size after the build is completed and I’ve had time to set it up.

More work carried out today, 9000 chainset. 6800 front mech and bb cable guide. I’m liking this build, can’t wait to finish and to take it for its first ride.
