Sold the TT bike and got the RB1000 frameset/fork, in XS with a 52.5cm toptube, 75.5 deg seat angle.
Was looking at something extraordinary (as compared to my C50, Time VXRS, Master), and the RB1k seems the most fitting, although it will never age as well as a C50
BB, downtube, chainstays is just massive as compared to the C50/VXRS!
This will be a simple, straightforward built, with non-weightweenie components. Most likely with a mechanical Record 11, an EPS grouppo is still in consideration but the battery bulk..
Here's a lousy mock-up pic taken with the mobile, bars/stem will be replace with 3T
Really nice bike by the way, the color scheme is subtle yet still attracts some attention, overall awesome bike and can't wait to see a finished build!
Test ridden the EPS SR but was left disappointed, hence went for a mechanical groupset (as a matter of fact, I took the grouppo from my C50 )
Total weight is approx 6450 grs, with LW Std.
The only notable weightweenie component installed are the Orion brake calipers, having some thoughts of replacing it and going for a regular SR brakes in the near future.
The EPS did not impressed me on the rear shifts, front shifting is pretty good though there's some delay on the auto trimming. I'm a Campagnolo guy and will just wait until Campagnolo releases the next version. It will be mechanical for me until then.
Thanks for the compliments. I'm looking forward to your Trek project as well
Btw, those chrome parts are in fact metallic silver
The frame is quite a heavyweight, approx 1500+ gr, I would contribute this to the ridiculously thick layer of paint. The fork is impressively light though, approx 300 gr trimmed.
