    I quite like it, except for the SRAM/Shimano mix and match.

    yeah, i know, i had parts left on my old bike, so i decided to reuse the 105 RD and 105 FD, got the 105 shifters on sale.

    when budget permits, i will be switching them for SRAM Force parts to match the BB30 Crank.

    Thanks

    I hate seeing a slammed forward saddle on a seat post with set back.

    True, i didn't notice that either, my friend just finished building it for me, i usually put my saddle a little further back, i am picking it up tomorrow. He just test rode it, to tune the bike for me. i will have to repost a pic once i have the bike set up for me.

    Why would you "submit" a bike that wasn't complete or finished anyway?

    Pardon me. I was just exited with the picture of my new bike and was sharing it.

    I'm not trying to be a jerk about it, but this isn't "show us your new bike" or "what bike do you ride". This thread is highly judgemental to begin with and it just seems odd when people post a bike that isn't complete or even in their own possession. I am certainly glad you are excited about it bike as you should be. I want to be excited about it too, but would rather see it when its completed is all.

    Cheers

    It's got a ton of potential. Losing the stack of spacers would help too.

    It looks like it's centered. The rails look pretty short and the clamp rather large.

    Ultegra 11 speed with Campy shifters (and a shiftmate) on a Peugeot steel frame? Quite the mix...

    Wow you've got a better eye than me. All I can tell from that pic is that it's a Peugeot.

    No shiftmate. The derailleurs are campy. Only used the shimano crank because campy isn't comparable with the swiss bottom bracket. Better picture pending... Just took this at 6 am pre-ride.

    I didn't realize you could get swiss outboard cups. Sweet build.
