Moderator: Moderator Team
Frame: Elite Joule Pro (White with Chrome Decals)
Fork: Enve 1.0
Headset: Chris King
Seatpost, Stem and Handlebar: Enve
Saddle: Dash Stage.9
Groupset: Campagnolo Super Record (Yet to purchase)
Pedals: DA 9000
Wheelset: Zipp 101s (Currently with Shimano/SRAM freehub)
Seems to me a pretty messy combination as to mix Enve components with Zipp Wheels and Campy with DA pedals. The initial plan was to go DA9000, however the 170mm crank is not available. In fact the only group set available currently in my country with 170mm crank arm is Campy. The other option is DA7900 which I am not favoring. This bike is supposed to stay with me for a long time, hence I will like the components to be lasting. Any comments?

Drop the tail light... get some new bottle cages...
And even though the Dash saddle is very expensive (and probably pretty comfy) it really turns me off visually... can't help it.

Not aesthetically pleasing but if it does the job for him on a long ride, who's to complain? We're not all giants with ape-like long arms who run huge saddle-to-handlebar drops because it looks wannabee pro.
im with you. Sure it doesnt look pro, but one can agree that the build list is almost perfect! I say almost, because it would be better on my bike. Rather jelly of the build.
Can you tell us more about the builder and why you chose to go with them?
Anyway, the spacer tower will not be there in couple of months time as it is meant for me get back into cycling after being off for a couple of months. The plan was for 1cm of spacer above and below the stem.
I was trying to give it a classic look hence opting to go with those cages. I will put on the carbon cages now to see how it works out. I have 2 spare arundel carbon cages. The lights are staying cos it is the complete look of the bicycle. I ride with them, as my rides are mainly early in the morning.
Thanks for all the feedback.
