Yeah, I'd also go with black everything. Nice ride though. Enjoy it.

Why did you change the chainrings? Did you have problems with them (physically or something)?

Nice build man.
That color scheme was originally my first option too, but I got told it wouldn't be available in Australia til March (I ordered mine in Nov 2012) so I went OPQS. Still love the black & red.

This bike is getting better and better.
I think it's nice with a bit of white, keep it as it is, atleast for summer anyway.
with the 120mm stem (slammed) and that amount of seat post it looks awesome, great fit
enjoy

The problem was the front shifting, it doesnt work as well with osymetrics and I finally got tired of the poor shifting.

Im really pleased with the bike and fit now :)

Sweet bike!

Does the Dura Ace shift well with the S- works chainrings?

The shifting is absolutely flawless now with the s-works rings.

Some upgrades for the coming season.

Saddle: Tune Komm-Vor+ 82g (weight saving of 96g), will see how my butt likes it, it feels flexible enough.

Wheels: 2014 Zipp 404 Tubulars 1474g (weight saving of about 100g over the current clincher 404's)
Rear

Front

Tires: Veloflex Carbon and Extreme (have yet to receive these)

Will weigh the bike once I have the tires mounted. :beerchug:

saddle looks to be a solid upgrade, good to bring a little more black in.

I think it looks good on the bike as well and I like the little piece of white leather to tie it in with the rest of the bike. And it felt good on the 2hr trainer ride I did today, I was afraid of sliding around but no problems what so ever and no soreness either. Still to early to tell if it will work out in the long run but so far so good.

My goal right now is getting the bike down to 6,5kg without going to a super light wheelset so it will be interesting to see where it's at after the new parts are fitted.
