She's ready!

I got the Ritchey Breakaway frame built up for my commute tomorrow. She still needs a braze-on adapter so I can install the FSA front derailleur. I'm also waiting on a hand-built set of cyclocross wheels with Salsa rims and Ritchey hubs. She's decked out with road width Ritchey wheels and a temporary derailleur.
With the Brooks saddle @60 cm she weights 22 lbs (steel frame). I hope to post a couple pictures in the morning when I can get some daylight shots.
FSA compact crankset
Easton Carbon drop bars and Easton alloy stem
FSA front derailleur
Deore rapid rise rear derailleur
DA bar end shifters
Tektro levers and Tektro cantilever brakes
Ritchey Wheelsets
Forte and SRAM cassettes 11-32T 9 speed
SRAM chain
Brooks B17
Ritchey threadless Headset
Ritchey Breakaway steel frame & CF fork

Can you bring "her" inside at the office? I commute on a high end beater, as I can't.

Yes, my bikes park on the other side of my cubicle wall. The worse that happens is another biker comes by and rings the bell to annoy me.
