what makes this forum great (other than weight related issues) is that if you search well, you can pretty much find any combination! surely someone in the future will want to know how a spare sram red groupo will look on a prospective master x build, and your photo will be a great source.
IF you want to keep options open, why not get a set of campy chorus or record for the master x and switch the red to the 695, will work great and help keep weight down.
I've been thinking of that exact 695 for a while now, id dress it with di2 & cosmic ultimates.
or campy sr ti with bora 2s...
either way, looking forward! congratulations.

You don't have to take the photo down of course but its not about what "works for some" and not for others. Design and aesthetics are taught at universities, schools of design, architecture, fashion etc. etc. Yours would be a 100% "wrong" example of product styling. Sorry...
Looking forward to your Lo- no, there really is no way round this pun... Have you thought about fibre-lyte chainrings? They make them in a number of styles and any custom teeth you like! They're fantastic.
I have the exact frameset....I ride with the rotor rings (non aero version)
Also, the plastic film supplied for your crank arms, beware if you stick this to your crank and need to remove it in the future (cosmetic reasons ect) you run a chance of pulling the graphics/clearcoat off. I did, fortunately for me, I didn't pull any of the graphics off.... I had the crankset all re-lacquered which now protects the arms and graphics, graphics on the crank, stem and e-post are not under clearcoat, So beware when cleaning.
Finally, apologies if I'm teaching to suck eggs, remove the crankset, and forks you'll need the regrease these areas....look don't apply to much from the factory. It's reads/sounds really daunting removing these components, however it's really really simple.
Lastly, keep an eye on all your bolts ect from coming loose on your first few rides.....the stiff 695 likes to rattle them loose, I applied ptfe plumbers tape to the chainring bolts which insisted on coming loose every ride.
I'm not here to teach but to learn, so much info talking to the good guys here, so far I've had a few PM's which has brilliant showing me shit that I wouldn't have known regarding the 695.
@ Steve, damn that build is pretty much what I had in mind bar the DA. Wheels I'll need to source soon enough.
@ Giant Man - Reason for SR? I had a certain budget, I'm currently running Enve 45's on DT240 hubs which I thought were light until I saw the specs of the Lightweights. I've got some super smooth bikes eg Master and Cielo (both awesome steel by the way) and deciding on a Super Rigid was the right thing to do for me in this instance. I'll hit crits this summer and really give it what I got. PLUS it was slightly cheaper then the normal version and that spare change will head towards something LightWeight
Ok here is the build.
SRAM RED grouppo, same as what I got on the Master.
Praxis Works rings
Enve 45's (for now) latex tubes and GP4000's
3T LTD Ergonova bars
Sella Italia SLR
For my other bikes, I'm not too fussed about the weight, hence they aren't my focus for this site. In true WW form, I want my 695 to be the lightest it can be with the size of my budget. It'll be a work in process and speaking of which, tonight the brakes go on. Let the building begin!
Steel is real. Another shot of the Cielo with crankset installed.
Frame weight, not the lightest steel I'm sure. Bearing in mind I had the CK headset installed from the factory.
