I'll post updates as the build progresses in this thread. I should have a final plan within a couple of days.
Features for the build: I weigh 170 lbs so stiffness takes a slight priority over weight, no ISP, matching stem with integrated cable hanger, rear brake and rear derailleur cables on TT and FD cables under BB, paint job using matte black as primary color with glossy black and a bright accent color.
Will be built up with Zipp cyclocross 303 tubulars, an Enve CX fork, Chris King headset, Avid Shorty Ultimate Cantis, Dugasts, Sram RED, FSA K-Force Light bars and seatpost, and a Lightning crank set.
Rob and I have not talked about how he is going to do the seat stays yet, Ted. I think we will eventually, but I have a tremendous amount of faith in him as a builder and I think he has a much better idea than me of how the tubes will react to braking (hopefully not "breaking") forces.
Here is a rough paint design that I put together in PS. I would love any input you guys can give. The red arrow is just to show that I'm doing my name on the TT. The gray is going to be matte black where as the black is going to be shiny.
So I'm finally able to show the goods. Couldn't be more happier with how this build is progressing. I believe that one of Rob's strength's is his awesome communication, so instead of paraphrasing, I am going to paste in am excerpt his last email:
Your frame is all tacked together; here are a couple of shots with it just
pulled out the jig - I have the BB area brazed up with the rest to go... I'm really pleased with how the rear end has come together - Deda s-bend chainstays, tapered seatstays with a slight curve, topped by an oversize
wishbone to give a solid mounting point for the rear brake.
The oversized wishbone addresses the concerns that Ted brought up beautifully, check out the wishbone detail shot!
