Cockpit: ENVE offset post, 100mm stem, compact road bar
Saddle: fi'zi:k Arione CX Braided saddle

I am still in awe over this frame's stiffness and vertical compliance. Words cannot describe just how awesome this bike feels!
Mmm. I love me some mango.
As for the rest of the bike (what we're really talking about here), it's absolutely brilliant. I love every bit of it and I wouldn't change a thing. Well done!

Thanks! I did some quick Photoshop to remove the stands from the wider shots—but the rest was all in the lighting setup.

Ugh, the bump! I've been messing around with the levers for a while and still can't get it perfect after taping. I find that if I tilt the levers up too much, it's quite a stretch to the brakes when in the drops. I'll try your suggestions.
I had a ton of fun putting this bike together. I put everything together in one non-stop, marathon build—including lacing up the wheels. I can't say that I've ever had to do that much to a bike all at once, but I can quickly see how this can become an obsession...
For some reason the ENVE stem looks out of place to me. Something like a 3T would set it off.
