Hi all, I recently got hold of a discounted Cinelli Nemo Tig frame and wanted to get your thoughts on how best to build it up. I'm looking to keep price <eur4k and weight ~8kg. I'm a novice rider and will be cycling relatively flat terrain for 1-2 hour rides mid week / longer on weekends. If helpful to know, I weigh 63kg, 170cm height and 78cm inseam.

Any feedback on the following components regarding choice, compatability, or even aesthetics, would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Cool bike.
Build looks fine, but your groupset weight doesn't include cables, so expect your build to be over the 8kg mark.

Why not a Campy Centaur and Fulcrum wheels(they have some 900 euros wheels which have the AC3 braking)? Would be a much more cleaner/italian build
Otherwise the build list looks really good, Ultegra + Zipp 302

^What he said! Mine fulcrum carbon quattro weights 1455g with the decals removed and could be found for around 850-900 euros, ac3 works very well with their red campa pass.

If you cut the fork maybe -20g, you could also found a much lighter seatpost.

Very good choices, Cinelli Neos components fit this frame nicely.

I would also have put Campagnolo on it though - you should be able to get 11s Potenza at the price of an Ultegra and it would be much classier this way.
And a proper road pedals (e.g. Look) - should be lighter and will look (haha) better.

Thanks for the help everyone! Ended up switching a few things from the list as suggested, to Campag Potenza groupset, Fulcrum Wind 40C wheelset, Veloflex Master 28 SPS, and Lizard Skins DSP 2.5mm bar tape. Weight ended up over 8kg, I'm guessing due to cables, quick releases and general inaccuracy of stated weights :p. Here are a few photos of the fresh build!

whoops, lol, didnt read the whole thign before posting, but looks like you pretty much did the same thing!

zipp 302 is quite narrow, matching with 28c will ruin the aerodynamics by quite abit.
there are alot of Potenza deals on the internet, especially ebay (brand new, not second hand). i managed to get the whole set (without cassette, and use KMC chain) for 450 eur.
to keep it to Italian, i would suggest Fulcrum Wind 40/55 for similar price to the zipp.

Some say pour 10ml water out of your bottle to save that last bit of the weight. Sorry, i go one step further, i tend to the rider off my bikes. :thumbup:

Nice classy build! With core strength and flexibility progress you can remove these spacers from under the stem, will be even better.
Also check the saddle height - with 78cm inseam I'd expect the top of the saddle to be around 69cm from the middle of BB, measured along the seat tube - yours seem a tad lower.

It's a beauty, nice component choice. Glad you switch from Shimano to Campag :)
