cost should be around $2200 or so.Good luck.
What is the rake and feel of that fork? I have reynolds ouzo crit and often dream of something cooler but still stiff
amazing to see a ride with Da to be that light
i am freaking jelous but il get over it
my tlo bar came out 140 grams (40 c-c )
and my extralite ul2 was 86 grams (110mm)
so its pretty light
also red shifters would give u a 100+ grams weight reduction
question: the 7700 and 7800 Da front and rear mech have alu adjusting screws, why did u upgrade with Ti ones?
A few notes regarding deviations from the original build plan...
1. Power Cordz DO NOT work with M5 brakes. I tried several modifications but nothing worked. I went through several sets of Power Cordz trying. The guys at IO Dupont are really stand up guys who stand behind their product. When I explained the failures I had initially, they sent me several sets of brake and derailleur cables to try free of charge. The derailleur cables work fine in ever application I have tried. The brake cables on my DA equipped bike are working perfectly. This is a great product, just not with M5 brakes.
2. My experiment with Nokon carbon cables for brakes ended in failure. They just won't hold up to the forces associated with hard braking. I had two catastrophic failures of the carbon "pearls" on my front brake and decided to call it quits. The rear brake worked fine, but I decided to go back to aluminum Nokon on the rear just to be safe. More braking force on the front brake would explain the failures on that end only.
Unfortunately, the bike blew over while I was taking these pictures. I had literally just finished wrapping the bars with new tape and a gust of wind threw the bike down on its side. Tore up my new tape job at the bar end and ripped my favorite saddle. Blah!!!
Anyway, enjoy the photos...

You should not have started it anyway, those nokon carbon pearls are for shiftcables only, how many times did we mentioned that here already ?
Despite that nice bike with heavy wheels ...
