    Looking for advice on components for Bianchi 828 C2C Carbon frame

    Hello fellow big people ... I just purchased on Ebay a used Bianchi 2007 C2C (Coast to Coast) all carbon road bike frame ... now I need to build it. Thinking about Race Lite Wheels or Kyserium Elite ... any other suggestions? I do a lot of long distance road biking and looking forward to the smooth but efficient ride on the full carbon bike. I have been using a Cannondale T-800 Touring bike which has been great but heavy and tiring on long rides. I am probably going to purchase full Ultegra shifters, brakes, deraillers, cables, etc. I am planning on getting the oval shaped handlebars as I now double wrap my round bars to make a bigger diameter for my big mitts. Looking for as much advise as possible on this new build but trying to do it with a budget in mind ... Thanks to all of you for your help

    You're a big rider, get handbuilt wheels. You'll lose a tiny bit of weight efficiency, but it won't matter compared to your mass. You'll gain a lot of durability, reparability, etc.
