Looks promising. Might plan a bike around this.

I've got mine 85% put together. Still waiting on a few parts. I expect low 13s for weight.

I choose this frame, not just based on weight and cost, but also considering geometry, and construction. I wanted something that was close in handling to my Addict, but that would offer a little more compliance over the rough stuff. Only riding will tell if it meets those objectives, but spec wise, it looks promising.

Finally finished putting together. I can honestly say sub 13lbs!
Took it out for a 60 mile spin. I love it. Super nice handling, stiff, comfortable, very solid feeling.

The pictures you posted didn't work for me. Can you repost?

Well, I can't explain that right now. I'll see if they show up for me when I'm at work tomorrow. I'm using dropbox, so maybe that's a problem?

Nice build, love it!

I take it they are tubular wheels to get the weight that low? And the brakes?

Brakes are KCNC CB3 Angle.
Tires are clinchers, presumably on Chinese wheels?

The wheels are Farsports FSC38-CM clinchers. As noted the brakes are KCNC CB3s.
the seatpost, stem, bars are Ritchey SuperLogic, and the saddle is Fizik Aliante R1.
Drive train is all DA 9000, except crank which is Red 22 (52x36). Cassette is 11x28.
Pedals are Time Xpresso 12s.
Bottle cages are ebay matte UD carbon @ 18g each.
No tuning, and a complete daily rider build.

Unrelated to your bike but how do you find the Fizik Aliante R1 saddle? It gave me incredible pain in the nether regions. Couldn't switch it out fast enough!

Well, I'm a long time Aliante user, and I was a little skeptical about the change for the R1. The main reason being the all carbon base which seems to have less flex than the old carbon/kevlar base. I've only done one ride on it (the 60 miler mentioned above), and my observations are that they at least maintained the shape. The nose seems to have a little less padding and there might be less flex, but I'll need a few more rides on it to make up my mind. As you can imagine, doing a maiden voyage on a new frame, new components, and new saddle doesn't feel the same, and it usually takes me a couple of rides to begin to quantify the subtle differences.
That being said, it didn't feel significantly different than the older version.
