    Your CLX prompted me to repost a pic of my C40. Mine sits and waits for better weather while I spin on my SS or Specialized E5 through the muck and salt grime of winter.

    I highly recommend the EC90 crank. I would not, and could not, pay full price. Got mine on eBay. The friend who gave me the C40 regularly chastises me for replacing the old Campy Record crank with the Easton. I just like the carbon look and wanted to upgrade to outboard bearings when the Campy crank wore out. If you want to go with a non-Campy crank, I'd also recommend the Stronglight Fission. Light, stiff, looks cool and can be had for under $350.00 on eBay. I run the Stronglight on a Masi Gran Criterium.
    Back to the CLX; one of my ride group buddies just bought one 2 months ago with DuraAce and can't stop talking about how much he loves it. Ride the hell out of that rig.

    The red housing and skewers are the cat's pajamas. Sweet ride. Are you done yet, or will you continue to tweak?

    There is a 49% chance I will go with a shorter stem, I still have to cut the rest of the steerer down, and I will put the s-works crank back on when the cinqo is available for it.

    Okay, I got some new parts on this baby; the cranks and pedals (red 172.5 and Look Keo Carbon) are from PlatyPius, and the saddle is from El Diablo Rojo, both in trades.
    The bars were originally replacements, but they're stiff and I like them a little more than my old Deda Newton Classics. They are the stock 40cm RaceFace Revolution (I accidentally taped over the 'r'). They'll be staying.
    I reckon the bike to be about 16 pounds as pictured with the wired PowerTap (can't tell, can you!?), 1070 cassette and 6600 chain.
    Sadly, I won't be able to ride her even on the trainer for a few more weeks while I heal my tendonitis.

    I've thought about it before, and now that I'm looking at a picture of it, it does look a little further back than my other bikes.

    I had a follow-up to my fit from last month and my position on the bike has gotten a lot better. The increased flexibility/core strength facilitated getting a stem that is 15mm longer than what was previously installed.


    Edit: I removed one of the small spacers after taking this picture. I think the fit is finally dialed in.
