I jumped on Cyclesports amazing deal on this frameset! It's a Blue AC1 SL LE (limited edition #101). I will be posting progress on this as I build and as funds allow! Here are a couple pictures out of the box...other AC1 SL owners post up your bikes and experience with them!!!
I just ordered Zipp Vuka Sprint handlebars, that's going along with a Zipp SCSL beyond black stem. Boyd carbon tubulars (50mm) are coming as well!
Here is a few pic's of the frame/fork
Running out of funds quick so will probably go with SRAM force gruppo. My goal is for this to be the perfect breakaway rig! Thanks and will continue to update...
I would recommend not compromising your build due to funds. Just take a bit longer and build what you really want.
You presumably already have a bike to ride.
Build looks great by the way, those bars make absolute sense for aero-road bike builds. My mate has a set on his venge boonen edition, which incidentally, also has a limited edition metal plaque on the top tube.
Below is what I have assembled thus far:
The AM Classic 58 Carbon Tubulars were used (e bay).
The Stem, Handlebars and Water Bottle cage are by Aerus Composites (all new- e bay).
Saddle is ISM Adamo Road Gel (new- e bay).
Pedals, not shown are Shimano PD-6700-C (new- e bay).
I am going Sram Red with the components. I have puchased the following so far:
a. Sram Red- Black Edition Cranket 175- 53/39 and a Sram GXP Cermamic BB on the way (new- e bay).
b. Sram Red OG-1090 Cassette, Sram Red FD Braze On and Sram PC-1091 chain on the way (new- Colorado cyclst- clearance).
I mainly do tri's, hence the Blue on the trainer in the background, but needed a nice bike (on a budget) to ride with groups, when I did not want to ride solo.
My money is spend for the next two months so I will keep you posted with updates.
Currently riding a Swift carbon bike. The old CEO of Blue felt bad and ended up giving me a bike...
Good bikes, just a small company. I think I'll stay away from smaller companies for future builds.

They sold out their cycling stuff, I think now they're motosports.com. I did get some killer deals on what they were closing out, but that was months ago.
