I expect to have it in June so there are 1 or 2 in front of me... maybe a couple more. Rob and I spoke last night and hammered out a few more details.
Steel frame, ISP (with some slight adjustability), internal di2 and brake routing, aero downtube, 1 1/8" head tube, standard english threaded b/b
Custom steel fork with semi-aero, tapered blades, pinch bolt crown that mounts to 1-piece stem/steerer. Like this: http://www.bikerevuk.com/bikepics/brand ... nny005.jpg
Custom steel stem/steerer with internally mounted di2 controller in the stem. Like this: http://www.bikerevuk.com/bikepics/emiliano/ranger3.jpg
In keeping with the steel theme, I'm going to use my Sweet Wings steel cranks with some Fibre Lyte chainrings. I'm rebuilding the bb with full ceramic bearings. If those don't work well for me I'll go with a set of Claviculas.
It is still my desire to chrome the frame, fork, and stem. I'm looking into getting the crank polished and plated as well. But the metal polishers might talk me out of it. There are concerns that polishing the frame tubes sufficiently to get a good finish may result in weakened tubes. I don't want that... not to mention an additional $500.00 or so on the price tag. So we'll see how the finish goes. Perhaps I'll paint everything up to match, including the crank.
Rounding out the build will be the following:
Shimano di2 Shifters and derailleurs
Custom internal battery (possibly with a USB charging port built into the frame = no need to remove seat or bb)
Cane Creek AER Headset
Easton EC90 Equipe Handlebars
Selle Italia SLK Kit Carbonio Saddle
KMC X-10SL Chain
Nokon Brake Cables
My 1060g 20mm Carbon tubulars viewtopic.php?f=3&t=62998&hilit=sub+1000&start=150
All parts for the build are in hand or in the mail except handlebars and brakes.
If anyone knows where I can get an Easton EC90 Equipe Pro handlebar in 44cm width let me know. Also, I'm patiently awaiting the availability of ee brakes. I know they are coming soon but I am impatient. haha
KMC X10SL chain in hand.
1060 gram wheels in hand.
Nokon Brake cables in hand.
Frame/fork/stem paid in full.
Selle SLK Kit Carbonio saddle ordered.
Cane Creek AER Headset ordered.
Still deciding on cranks... but currently planning to use classic steel Sweet Wings finished to match frameset.
Trying to get my hands on a set of EE brakes and an Easton EC90 Equipe pro 44cm handlebar.
Bar tape to be determined by final color scheme.
I'm getting very excited.
I e-mailed Craig at EE Cycleworks about brakes. I've spoken to him and really enjoyed talking to him. He's a nice guy. Anyway, he said brakes are coming but they are not available yet. I'm not sure they'll be available before my build is finished so I may have to use some other brakes temporarily. Blah!
