The frame would look superb with a full Record group
And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

I agree with that too. But I would only go with the old recordgroup(before the weird looking gearlevers). I don´t think that the functionallity of super record misses anything. But the gearlevers just don´t fit this frame in my world. The only groupsets I would go with is DA 7800, DA DI2, Sram Red black and the old campagnolo Record. Offcourse with Ultra torque cranks.
My unrealistic dream is DI2, that is as integrated as possible. And then get a carbonfreak I know to remove the cabelguides. Then somehow to fit a Cannondale SL crankset into the frame. I`ve read somewhere that its actually possible. And then maybe a pair of Cosmic Carbone ultimate 2011. Stickers fit this bike perfect.

In that case I would go with a Berner cage then. Too much color on the Sram Red cage on the RD.

Well. I just won my first race. This bike is really great. Rides like a dream. The rider I beat on the finishline just came number 3 in the Danish U19 national championships last week. So I´m pretty satisfied with the result. Not to mention I was in a 2 against 1 situation with him and his teammate. And I dragged this rider the last 6 kilometers of the race, and still won the race.

Well can´t see that white socks could fit anything on the bike. I like the tall shaft on the socks. My legs looks more trimmed ;)

Well, I made the clearcoat by myself, and well, the finish could have been alot better if I payed a pro to do it. On the toptube there is dust in the coat, You can´t see it unless your really close. Somewhere else I´ve sanded the area, and then I´ve cleaned it with Acetone, before I gave it a new layer of clear coat. Done in a room without too much dust.

This is the product I used for the clearcoat. The same company made the black gloss, that I used for the cranks, stem and bar.
