No, this picture was phase zero of the build. I'm a little further along, but will post more pictures once I get it. ;)

I was stalled on putting Centaur group on it, but I'm missing a few components, so it's going to get ultegra SL so I don't have to search and buy anymore parts right now. It's going to be mostly black and gray/silver, and the only real color is going to be blue tires.

Sounds like a classy colour combination!

I try to ride anything around Denver. High Grade, Deer Creek, Lookout, Squaw, Mt. Evans, Triple, Elephant Rock, Copper Triangle, Vail Pass. What ever I can.

Steamgod 02-25-08 07:15 PM

Parts are shipping today. Sram Red groupo, FSA K Force cockpit, Zipp 303 wheelset with ceramic bearings.
Haven't decided on a seat yet. Either a Fizik or Sella. Let me know how your project is going. Good luck

revolator 02-25-08 11:05 PM

I've got most of the parts on over the weekend. I'm still waiting on a cassette from pbk and a used thomson elite sp.

My dura ace hollowtech II bb isn't as smooth as I'd expect. The colors are pretty mute, and having the bright blue tires kind of works out.

I don't have ferrules on the frame brake cable guides, but think I'm going to get some to make the cable smoother. I'm thinking the same for the rear derailleur guide also.

I also need to get frame protectors which I haven't looked at yet. I cut the carbon steerer, and decided to max out the spacers at 35mm, and figure out where to go from there.

Steamgod 03-11-08 07:00 PM

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. Sounds like you are farther along then I am. Are you going to paint the bike or decals? Found out today the SRAM Red Gruppe came in. (not sure I could get them, so my back up plan was Campy Record) So I just ordered my wheels today (went with Zipp 303's) heard alot of good about them. Hopefully I can start the build in a week or two.

I've been having my own delays =)
